Week 2 Pre Calc 11

This week I learned about Finite geometric series, I learned how to find t_n and I also learned how to find the sum of t_1 to t_n.

To find t_n you need t_1 and the common ratio.

So say I was trying to find t_(15), so t_1=4 and the common ratio is 3. This is what you would do.

Then to find the sum of all the 15 t’s, you would add t_1 + t_2 + t_3 +…etc. But the easier way to do it would be to do this.

 

My arithmetic sequence

t_1 = 3, t_2 = 10, t_3 = 17, t_4 = 24, t_5 = 31.

So 3, 10, 17, 24, 31…

t_{50}?   S_{50}?

what I would do first is find out what is t_{50}.

t_n=t_1+(n-1)d

t_{50}=3+49(7)

t_{50}=3+343

t_{50}=346

Now I need to find S_50.

S_n=\frac{n}{2}(t_1+t_{50})

S_{50}=\frac{50}{2}(3+346)

S_{50}=25(349)

S_{50}=8725

So t_{50}=346 and S_{50}=8725.

Week 1 Pre Calc 11

This short week we learned about sequences but more importantly we learned how to get whatever number from the sequence.

Basically if t_1 was 5, then t_2 was 10, and t_3 then with what we learned I could find out what was t_{45}.

this is how.

This is what I learned this past week!

My Graduation Plan

1. Healthy Living

a. This year, I am doing P.E. 10 and I’m playing soccer to meet DPA requirements (150 mins/week of moderate to vigorous physical activity).
b. Next year, I will play soccer again and do P.E. 11 to meet DPA requirements.
c. Other than physical activity, I will also need a concrete plan for healthy eating and stress management in order to lead a healthy life after graduation.

2. Course Credits

a. I need 80 credits to graduate. A typical course is worth 4 credits.
i. 48 of them must be from required courses.
ii. 28 of them must be from electives.
iii. 16 of them must be from Grade 12 courses.
b. At the end of this year, I will have 40 credits.

3. Community Connections

a. I need 30 hours of work/volunteer experience. To show I completed this, I must show proof in the form of pay stub or reference letter.
b. I can start accumulating these hours in Grade 10.
c. My plan to earn work/volunteer hours is through the job that I currently have and the hours I already have.
d. I will also need to complete a reflection that includes my volunteer experience, employment skills, and how I benefitted from this experience. It will be 200 typed words minimum.

4. Career and Life

a. In addition to updating my resume, I will also create life and financial plan to show that I have a plan in place after graduation.
b. When I graduate, my current plan is to, I don’t know
5. Interview
a. To prepare for the interview, I can look at the questions ahead of time. They are found GT website
b. My interview will be with a riverside staff member.
6. The 3 people at Riverside who are here to help with this process are:
a. Mr. Ahmelich
b. Ms. David
c. My counsellor, Ms. Chittenden

In Grade 12, I will find all the necessary documents AND submit them at the GT website.
I will complete Grad Transitions 12 whenever I have English 12.. If I have it in 1st semester, I must complete everything except the interview before winter ball tickets. In 2nd semester, everything except the interview must be completed before the end of April..
