    2)  Next title your paper and then Watch this video and take notes.  Record the formulas in a box.  

    3)  Open up this handout of problems and complete them in your composition notebook.  Show as much work as is done in the video lesson.  If you are struggling you can get hints in the key.  Another option is to watch more video instruction on Khan Academy.

    4)  Grade and correct your paper.  Mark a C or star for correct.  Revise the problems that you missed.    key  

    3/23/20  L71  Sigma Notation 

    1)  Take photos of your work from L70 Arithmetic Series and turn in to Google Classroom.

    2)  Watch the video about Sigma Notation which is used when adding up the terms of a sequence (a series).

    3)  You also need to write a series in Sigma Notation   watch how to do this 

    4)  Complete the odd problems in the worksheet.  Checking your answers as you go along on last page(s) of worksheet.


    3/25  L72  Finite Geometric Series

    1)  Take photos of your work from L71 Sigma Notation or put them into a google doc or scan them and make a pdf and turn in to Google Classroom.

    2)  Put a title on your paper for this lesson (composition notebook is fine).

    3)  What is a geometric series?  What is a formula to find the partial sum? Where does it come from?  Watch this video (click on it) record formulas and take notes.  

    4)  Go to your textbook (You can also open the Big Ideas Link at the top of this unit calendar) and read  P. 428 middle of page through example 5. 

    As you use your calc be careful you will need (   )  to group num. and den.

    or work num and press = then /

    (1-r)= then *a=

    5)  Do Big Ideas P. 430  47-54, 59, 60, 65 checking your work along the way with the link at the top of this unit lesson calendar.

    6)  Next, do problems related to arithmetic series using your formulas from L70 (also P. 420).  Do P. 423  47-55 odds checking your work along the way with the link at the top of this unit lesson calendar.  Try to have this work done by Thursday before you go to sleep.

    3/27  L73  Infinite Geometric Series

    2)   Title your paper.

    3) What is an infinite geometric series? 

    How can we tell when an infinite geometric series converges or diverges?  How do we find the sum if it exists?

    Watch this video (click on it) and take notes.  Don't worry about the "slide" that has limits but just watch that slide you will do limits next year.
