Calculus BC 2015-2016 March: Power Series!

Calculus BC 2015-2016 March

Power Series!
UNIT11 was all about MacLaurin and Taylor Expansions. First we generated series for e^x, sin(x) and cos(x). Then we talked about the Ratio Test For Absolute Convergence, Intervals of Convergence, Centers of Convergence and Radii of Convergence. We talked about getting new series from old series by substitution, integration and differentiation. We even generated series by long division and Geometric Expansion. Last, but not least we created a Taylor Series for ln(1+x) and (1+x)^p. Don't forget the Alternating Series and the LaGrange Error Terms!

The next 3 Socrative Mondays will be about BC Part IA and IB MCQ practice. Then the last 3 Mondays are MCQ Monday Mock AP Exams.

Who invented Calculus?
What does PI sound like?

NEW - Calculus BC + TI-nSpire CX CAS

Well, that's all folks!
