Practice with some of Q1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10. Don't worry about the new notations ==> they basically all mean f(x).


For REVIEW of Arithmetic Sequences & Series, from the 3rd ed of Cirrito => Ex 8.1.3 on page 251, Q3,5,6,7,8,12bc,13b

For further practice & REVIEW with Geometric Series, I am re-linking questions from the new edition of the Cirrito textbook ==> You could work through Exercise 8.2.2 on p262-3, Q3ab,4cd,5,10-14. You could also work through Exercise 8.2.3 on p264, Q2,4. Questions dealing with infinite geometric series are in Exercise 8.2.4 on p266-7, Q1ac,8,9,10


AFTER LESSON 4 - Infinite Geometric Series

Assigned on Monday, Sep 1

Due: Wednesday, Sep 3


From the Mathematics Higher Level, Oxford textbook, Exercise 1E, p21, Q8,9 as well as Exercise 1F, p23, Q1

For further practice, I have linked questions from the new edition of the Cirrito textbook ==> You could work through Exercise 8.2.2 on p262-3, Q3ab,4cd,5,10-14. You could also work through Exercise 8.2.3 on p264, Q2,4. Questions dealing with infinite geometric series are in Exercise 8.2.4 on p266-7, Q1ac,8,9,10


FOR LESSON 3 (Day 2) - Geometric Series

Assigned on Thursday, Aug 28

Due: Monday, Sep 1


From the Mathematics Higher Level, Oxford textbook, Exercise 1E, p21, Q1-5,7 as well as Exercise 1F, p23, Q2,4 (you may have to review compound interest calculations (video link here) to do Q4)

For further practice, I have linked another textbook ==> Work through Larson's textbook ==> the second page of the pdf is p583 & do some of Q45-58. Use your graphing calculator (summation command) to check your algebraic work.


A final HW option is to try some IB style questions. I have posted some on our HL Facebook page


FOR LESSON 3 - Arithmetic Series

Assigned on Tuesday, Aug 26

Due: Thursday, Aug 28


From the Mathematics Higher Level, Oxford textbook, Exercise 1C, page 14, Q1,3,4,5

For further practice, I have linked another textbook ==> Work through Arithmetic Series from Nelson Text, S2.1. On pages 114-116 work through some of the following questions: Q2ac,5bd,6cd,8cd,10,11,14,15 & 21 for a challenge. If you experience difficulties, look at the EXAMPLES in the first 4 pages of this Nelson text. Here is a link to the ANSWERS


You are also starting to grade your summer portfolios ==> grade the PRESENTATION component of your work using the IB mark scheme


For review ==> here is a video from PatrickJMT on arithmetic sequences



FOR LESSON 2 - Working with Sequences

Assigned on Sunday, Aug 24

Due: Thursday, Aug 28


From the Cirrito Textbook, 3rd ed. (you should have received from me a pdf of the textbook last year!!!):

Exercises 8.1.1 on page 244, Q2,3,4,5,6,8,9,11,12,13 have been suggested, but now after Lesson 2, maybe try some other questions

Exercises 8.2.1 on page 255, Q1,3,4,5,7,8,10 have been suggested, but now after Lesson 2, maybe try some other questions

Here are the solutions to the requested HW problems from Lesson 2 on Arithmetic & Geometric Sequences from Sec 8.1.1 & 8.1.2 from the Cirrito text

You are also starting to grade your summer portfolios ==> grade the PRESENTATION component of your work using the IB mark scheme

To help review your skills with sequences, go to this link of collected videos and watch (as well as record the examples). You may also PREVIEW the concept of Arithmetic & Geometric Series
