Introduction

Mathematics Higher Level Portfolio Type I Series and Induction

Acknowledgement

Question sheet should directly be given from your IB Mathematics HL teachers. This is due to the fact that IB students are not allowed to hold any question paper; every candidate must finish this coursework and return the question sheet in five days. Therefore I was not able to include any questions in this portfolio.

Introduction

This Investigation of the Series and Induction Portfolio for Math HL brings out that the sum of terms of series following a certain pattern can be predicted as expressions by studying these patterns. With the resourceful use of a calculator, studying the graphs and

Question 5

Use of the Pascal’s triangle

1  3  3  1

1  4  6  4  1

1  5  10 10 5  1

1  6  15  20 15  6  1

1  7  21  35  35 21  7  1

1  8 28 56  70  56  28  8  1

…… And so on

By using Pascal’s triangle, we can get the results with binomial theorem.

We could use this triangle to get image63.png and put those coefficients to image63.png

(n+1)k+1nk+1= ank+bnk-1+cnk-2+1

n=1

2k+1–1k+1= a∙1k+b∙1k-1+c∙1k-2+1

n=2

3k+1–2k+1= a∙2k+b∙2k-1+c∙2k-2+1

n=m

(m +1)k+1 m k+1= ank+bnk-1+cnk-2+1

                           = a(1 k +2 k +3 k ++ m k ) + b(1 k-1 +2 k-1 +3 k-1 ++ m k-1)+ …+ m

image63.png = 1 k+2 k+3 k+4 k++n k =image64.png{(m+1) k+1–1–b(1 k-1 +2 k-1 +3 k-1 ++ m k-1)+–m}

Those a, b, c, d represents the coefficients. We can simply get the coefficient from the Pascal’s triangle.

    The name for this proportion is known as the similarity ratio. In order to prove the conjecture above, one needs to find the area of the bigger triangle and divide it by the area of the smaller triangle. If the produced equation matches the equation above, then the conjecture has been proved analytically.

  1. Shadow Functions Maths IB HL Portfolio

    If we want to generalise an expression for the shadow function, we need to reconsider the definition of the shadow function in itself. It has the same vertex, but opposite concavity. Thus, it is reflected by the line passing through the vertex and horizontal to the x-axis: .

When t = 1984 h (1984) = 19.5 sin {/48 [(1984) ? 1962)]} +215.5 ? 234.8332 ? 235 Therefore, the approximate gold medal height achieved in the year 1984 would be 235 cm.
