Dear Students,

You did excellent work today!

We now have some experience with compound interest problems. Hopefully you are getting more familiar with geometric sequences and series. Compound interest is just one of many applications.

Please finish the IB SL 1 – Sequences and Series PRACTICE for Tuesday:

Sequences and Series Practice

The Sequences and Series Test is on Thursday (October 10).

Enjoy your weekend!

Mr. Bryant

Dear Students,

Today was fun, working out the induction proof. Flemy had a great inspiration, and it ended up being the right way for us to go on that one.

For next time, please look over the packet on the Binomial Theorem, and watch these videos:–part-1–part-2–part-3

As you are watching, write down what he writes. If you have to pause the video and rewind, do it!

Finally, you have some proofs to do for practice. It is the packet that says PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE…. Here is a link, in case you need it:

Dear Students,

We have already learned how to approach sequences and series, and we have practiced some problems. In todays’ class we learned how to use mathematical induction. We also reviewed permutations and combinations. We will finish the unit next class with an exploration of the binomial theorem, followed with a Q/A session and practice.

You will be required to do lots of practice, beginning with this set of proofs:


Here is a Unit 2 review:

Unit 2 – Notes

We will spend the next 2 class periods practicing, and then we will test over these topics on Wednesday, October 9.
