AP Type Question 10 Sequences and Series – for BC only Convergence tests for series appear on both sections of the BC Calculus exam. In the multiple-choice section students may be asked to say if a sequence or series converges or which of several series converge. The Ratio test is used most often to determine…

Inrtoducing Power Series 2

In our last post we found that we could produce better and better polynomial approximations to a function. That is, we produced a set of polynomials of increasing degree that had the same value for the functions and its derivatives at a given point. To see what is going on I suggest we graph these approximating polynomials…
