Copyright © 2007 Pearson Education, Inc. Slide 8-6 8.1 Sequences f (x) notation is not used for sequences. Write Sequences are written as ordered lists a 1 is the first element, a 2 the second element, and so on A sequence is a function that has a set of natural numbers as its domain.

Copyright © 2007 Pearson Education, Inc. Slide 8-11 8.1 Convergent and Divergent Sequences Example : Find the first 5 terms of the sequence. Is the sequence convergent or divergent?

Copyright © 2007 Pearson Education, Inc. Slide 8-12 8.1 Convergent and Divergent Sequences Solution: The sequence converges to 0. The terms of the sequence 1, 0.5, 0.33.., 0.25, … grow smaller and smaller approaching 0. This can be seen graphically.

Copyright © 2007 Pearson Education, Inc. Slide 8-14 8.1 Convergent and Divergent Sequences Solution: The sequence is divergent. The terms grow large without bound 1, 4, 9, 16, 25, 36, 49, 64, … and do not approach any one number.

Slide 8-18 Finding the nth term of a Sequence Write an expression for the apparent nth term (a n ) of each sequence. a. 1, 3, 5, 7, … b. 2, 5, 10, 17, … Solution: a. n: 1 2 3 4... n terms: 1 3 5 7... a n Apparent pattern: Each term is 1 less than twice n, which implies that b. n: 1 2 3 4 … n terms: 2 5 10 17 … a n Apparent pattern: Each term is 1 more than the square of n, which implies that

Copyright © 2007 Pearson Education, Inc. Slide 8-19 Additional Example Write an expression for the apparent nth term of the sequence: Solution: Apparent pattern: Each term has a numerator that is 1 greater than its denominator, which implies that

Here are some values of n! for the first several nonnegative integers. Notice that 0! is 1 by definition. The value of n does not have to be very large before the value of n! becomes huge. For instance, 10! = 3,628,800.

Copyright © 2007 Pearson Education, Inc. Slide 8-24 Have you ever seen this sequence before? 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8 … Can you find the next three terms in the sequence? Hint: 13, 21, 34 Can you explain this pattern?

Copyright © 2007 Pearson Education, Inc. Slide 8-25 The Fibonacci Sequence Some sequences are defined recursively. To define a sequence recursively, you need to be given one or more of the first few terms. A well-known example is the Fibonacci Sequence. The Fibonacci Sequence is defined as follows: Write the first six terms of the Fibonacci Sequence:
