In this summation notation worksheet, 9th graders solve and complete 10 different problems that include using summation and Sigma notation. First, they identify the symbol for sigma notation. Then, students study the models shown to determine the pattern in each. They complete the table by solving each equation and writing their response on the line provided.
The Algebra of Summation Notation
In this algebra worksheet, students use the summation notation correctly as they solve problems. They define the integral of a function and solve problems involving i. There are 14 questions with an answer key.
Application Of Finite And Infinite Series
Students engage in a lesson that is about the powers of finite and infinite series. The lesson includes sample problems to develop the concept by putting in different steps that are climbed until mastering the objectives. They use a calculator to help to find the solutions to problems.
Smokey the Bear Takes Algebra
Students determine the factors that play a role in creating a forest-fire danger rating index. Students use linear, quadratic and exponential functions, along with summation notation to work with the Angstrom and Nesterov Indexes.
Smokey Bear Takes Algebra
High schoolers explain the relationship between relative humidity, temperature and the likelihood of fire-danger. They explain the real-world meaning of the intercepts and slope in the Angstrom index.
Exploring the Area Under a Curve
Using TI-89, mathematicians explore and investigate Riemann sums to estimate the area under the graphs of intervals by drawing and illustrating rectangles. They review and practice the concepts of summation notation and area formulas to construct five right-endpoint rectangles.
Sequences and Series
In this sequence worksheet, students determine the sum of numbers in a sequence. They evaluate an arithmetic sequence. This seven-page worksheet contains detailed notes, examples, and 10 problems.
Students investigate the probability of an event occurring. In this statistics lesson, students define statistics, sample and population to be able to solve the problems. They review the rules of summation and different sampling techniques.
Students build a robot using the TI. In this technology assignment, students measure a hallway using a robot. This assignment requires a Norland Robot.
Learners explore the concept of Riemann Sums. In this Riemann Sums lesson, students find left and right Riemann Sums of the cubic function. Learners find the Riemann sum of the cubic function on the interval 0 to 3.
Infinite Sequences and Series
Students investigate sequences and series numerically, graphically, and symbolically. In this sequences and series lesson, students use their Ti-89 to determine if a series is convergent. Students find the terms in a sequence and series and graph them. Students use summation notation to determine the sum of a sequence.
Estimating Pi as a Length
In this pi learning exercise, students evaluate the curve of a quarter of a circle. They analyze the length of the curve, and explain that if the area under the curve is equal to pi, the length of the curve above is also equal to pi. Students convert a sum written in summation notation into a Riemann sum. Students compare two strategies for computing estimates of arc length.
Can you find them all?
For this Algebra II/Pre-calculus worksheet, students examine a 10 X 10 array and determine the pseudotrace of the array. The six page worksheet contains three problems. Detailed solutions are provided.
Geometric Sequences and Series
In this algebra worksheet, learners solve sequences using the geometric mean for sequences and series. They have to find the next number in the pattern using the formula for geometric means. There are 23 problems to be solved.
Glencoe - Sum of Arithmetic Series
In this sum of arithmetic series learning exercise, learners solve 5 multiple choice problems. Students determine the sum of five arithmetic series in summation notation or given the first, last, and number of terms in between.
Infinite Geometric Series
In this Algebra II worksheet, 11th graders use their knowledge of infinite geometric series to solve problems such as determine in the sum of a series, solving word problems, and converting repeating decimals to fractions. The one page worksheet contains sixteen problems. Answers are not included.
Arithmetic and Geometric Sequences
