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.
9th - 12th Math
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.
9th - 12th Math CCSS: Designed
Infinite Sequences and Series
Students investigate sequences and series numerically, graphically, and symbolically. In this sequences and series activity, students use their Ti-89 to determine if a series is convergent. Students find the terms in a sequence and series and graph them.
12th - Higher Ed Math
Estimating Pi as a Length
In this pi instructional activity, 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.

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.
