## Lesson details

### Key learning points

- Multiplication tables are an example of a sequence.
- Sequences might have a specific difference which can be found.
- Sequences can have a specific multiplier which can be found.
- Written methods can be used to find larger numbers in a sequence.

Pupils may struggle to divide values correctly to find a multiplier, especially when fractional.

Pupils should write their sequence out with arrows to show which direction their multiplier is operating.

### Keywords
