Week 2 – Math 11 – Geometric series

To find a term in a geometric sequence you must use the formula

t_{n} = a (r)^{(n-1)}

to give an example here is my pattern  -3, 9, -27, 81…
to find  t_{10} follow these steps….

First, (r)^{(n-1)} becomes (r)^{(10-1)} wich is (r)^{9} leaving you with…

t_{10} = a (r)^{9}

Then you want to add in (a), replace (a) with -3 because it’s your first term. making your equation look like…

t_{10} = -3 (r)^{9}

once you have used all the given numbers you have. find the common ratio (r). if you follow the pattern of the sequence you will notice it is being multiplied by (-3) each time. so replace (r) with (-3)

t_{10} = -3 (-3)^{9}

(-3)^{9} is -19683

-3 x -19683 is 59,049

therefore t_{10} = 59,049

Part 2
to find the Geometric series you need to use this formula…

S_{n} = \frac{a (r^{n}-1)}{r-1}

using the pattern above we will find the series of  S_{10}. first lets add in the values we were given straight of the bat. replace (a) with -3, and replace (n) with 10…

S_{10} = \frac{-3 (r^{10}-1)}{r-1}

if you remember, above we found out that the common ratio was -3, so replace (r) with -3…

S_{10} = \frac{-3 (-3^{10}-1)}{-3-1}

first, we will do(-3)^{10} wich is,  59,049. then subtract 1 from this giving you, 59,048. now add this in…

S_{10} = \frac{-3 (59,048)}{-3-1}

after that multiply 59,048 by -3 giving you, -177,144. now add this to your equation…

S_{10} = \frac{-177,144}{-3-1}

now we must solve the denominator, -3-1 = -4.  your equation should look like this…

S_{10} = \frac{-177,144}{-4}

now divide these…

S_{10} = 44,286

Mutation Story

I’m the FG Syndrome. I infected my male carrier  by the X-linked recessive pattern. I change his X chromosome and ive caused many mutations in the MED12. I’ve not only effected that but I’ve also changed his intelligence and behavior. I effect intelligence disability’s just like my siblings, witch can vary from minor to severe. in my case I’m near the minor side. my host is now very hyper, and cant really focus, he’s very social but sometimes struggles with verbal communication and would rather just play. his muscles are week, he has large thumbs, large fists, and toes, he spends a long time in the bathroom and half the time is in pain due to constipation, his face is a little warped. with a abnormal foreheads, small ears and some wide set eyes. we first met when he was 6 but his parents didn’t notice till he was about 7 on a annual doctors appointment. after this he was put in a special class. he couldn’t focus at school and his relation ship at home changed. I was caused by a simple recessive gene in  the X-chromosome.

to research the fg syndrome I looked what the sg syndrome was/ is

to finish this project I asked how to format it because I was very confused. luckily I bookmarked these websites so could see them later.

I checked four websites but ended up only using two

I compared it to others to see witch had the same or similar information

I could have published this  mush earlier


First Peoples Principals

First peoples principles  are what we are doing in engineering brightness and the SSEP project.

The first persons principal is, learning is embedded in memory, history and story. because there correct memory is all threw ought history, because over the ages we have learned these things by what they did back then. and what they wrote down or passed down threw story’s to the next generations till they were able to spread this knowledge to others. the next one that I thought was a big one to is, learning involves practice and time. this is a very big one because it dose take time, when I am studying for a test I practice and study what I’m learning and repeat that over and over again taking hours of my time but drilling this information in to my brain. so that when comes test time ill be ready. the final one in my three would have to  be, learning involves generational roles and responsibility’s. this is the one I chose because just as I said in the first principal these story’s and knowledge were passed down for generations until there was a way to give this knowledge to the world. passing down this information could be as simple as telling your son a story your parents told you or singing your daughter to sleep with your family’s lullaby. were would we be if no one were able to or even bothered to pass down this information, would we be a hole generation behind in technology?

I use the first peoples principals a little bit, not all the time but a little bit. if everyone used these principals we might have a sturdier foundation for the future generations to build there life off of, like less drugs and under aged drinking to help our brains stay as full of knowledge as possible. what we are doing with engineering brightness is not only getting us more practice but helping those in need of light to benefiting the bot of us. one example of how I am using the first peoples principals to work, would be in our engineering brightness project. we are using our recourses and knowledge to help those in need.

Here are some of the photos I tookimg_2559-21hp68f-300x225delivery-1zxfra9-300x17420161206_105925-1v45rud-300x182                                                 this is our 3d model or our shell for the light20161206_105942-2mxw204-300x186screenshot_20161206-103734-2667jmw-300x225


Some of my thoughts on the skype experience were; what other ways could we improve their electricity? Would they be able to leave their solar paneled lights out in the day or would there light be stolen? And if so how would you be able to charge it then? I have learned about what problems that Dominican republic is having. and we talked to new Brunswick about there experience in doing this project, and we learned that the hand crank did not work that well, which lead us to do a solar panel. some people are fundraising but we were building the actual shell for the light because of our experience in drafting letting us build it. when we talked to the Dominican republic we were very shocked by the barbwire around the school and the news about the harsh living styles of the people that we were sending the lights too. it was neat to see how they live when there almost half way across the world. it was interesting to hear that some people acctuly don’t have lghts. people not having food  I had herd about not having a home I had thought about but n light had never struck me as a thought.





Currents in the Kitchen

My hypotheses is that…

the electricity can travel through things like and apple with no shell like an orange or lemon. because the shell will prevent it from going into the center of the orange there for not traveling threw it, but the apple is a solid thing with no shell so that it the electricity hits the apple it will travel to the copper.

ADL16 app review

I reviewed an app made by thix, called chemistry free, in this app you can test experiments using gasses, solids and liquids. It has a wide variety of tools, and chemicals.

a problem could be as simple as you do not know what these chemicals mixed together wouldscreenshot_20161103-111212 make, if it would be dangerous or harmful, with this app you could test. Like, mixing x and x together the boiling it on a hot plate to x tempter. If you HAD to mix the chemicals you could make the tempter change form hot to cold or change beakers and flasks. Like mixing water and HNO3.

When I use this app I can use solids, mixtures, liquids, and gases. Now I only have the free version. And the paid version comes with screenshot_20161103-111240more but you get to use all the tools and see what is given to you can do. I have put together, almost all the martials and seen the different experiments. This is what the app looks like.



you can test out different


-has a wide variety of tools

-easy to use, I jumped right in to it.



       Has a couple of bugs

          You have to play 10 dollars to get the full version

         Hard to control on phones, (much smoother on a tablet or computer)
