Sequences and series

5 videos
3 skills
This sequence (pun intended) of videos and exercises will help us explore ordered lists of objects--even infinite ones--that often have some pattern to them. We will then explore constructing sequences where the nth term is the sum of the first n terms of another sequence (series). This is surprisingly useful in a whole series (pun intended) of applications from finance to drug dosage.
