Introduction

Mathematics SL Portfolio Assignment 1

Title: Matrix Powers                                                                                                                           Type 1

1.Consider the matrix M =image00.png

image01.pngCalculate Mnfor n = 2, 3, 4, 5, 10, 20, 50.

M²=image10.png * image10.png= image27.png=image15.png

M³=image15.png*image10.png=image51.png=image02.png

M⁴=image02.png*image10.png=image11.png=image12.png

M⁵=image12.png*image10.png=image13.png=image14.png

M¹⁰=image14.png*image15.png=image16.png=image17.png

M²⁰=image17.png*image15.png=image18.png=image19.png

M⁵⁰=image17.png*image14.png=image20.png= image21.png

  • To obtain the matrices above I multiplied (a*b+b*g), (a*f+b*h), (c*e+d*g), (c*f+d*h)as shown in the general formula seen below

Describe in words any pattern you observe.

In the above matrices the pattern I observed is shown in relationship to the exponents and the numbers within the matrix. As the exponent increases consecutively the matrix is in turn multiplied by two.

Use this pattern to find a general expression for the matrix Mnin terms of n.

  • To obtain the matrices seen above I used the matrix function on the TI 84 calculator. In order to obtain the discriminate in each problem I used the formula ad –bc such thatimage40.png.

Patterns Found:

The patterns portrayed in matrices Pⁿ and Sⁿ mainly correspond to the coefficient shown in the box and the determinant in each individual series. In the series of Pⁿ, as each exponent progress consecutively the coefficients associated with that particular matrix (in factored form) are multiplied by two (2, 4, 8, and 16). Also, each determinant found in the Pⁿ series is multiplied by 8 as each exponent progress consecutively (64, 512, 4096, 32768). In the Sⁿ

Conclusion

Results for k=(2), n=-(.5) image08.png=image09.png

  • According to the numbers substituted in the problem above, it can be inferred that the scope of the problem is all real numbers and fractions. I have found no limitations that hinder the use of k and n.

5. Explain why your results hold true in general.

Referring back to work shown in question three, my results for these statements hold true because of the amount of times the equations were carried out. Overall, the steadiness of the results for each of the problems ensures the validity of each statement. A wide array of aspects was used to prove these statements true ranging from negative integers to fractions. The patterns seen were also consistent with the results which reinforce the strength of my statements. Therefore, I conclude that my results hold true in general.

    With the excess buildup of leftover drug, the maximum is at the beginning of the last dose taken, in this case of 24 hours, the 18hr would be the last dose. Minimum is at the 5 and a half hour with the amount of 4 micrograms in bloodstream.

    The frequency is approximately 0.5236 when expressed to radian. The maxima of the graph is 1 and the minima of the graph is -1. The amplitude in the graph is resulting to 1. The period in thegraph is which is approximately 2.0944 when expressed to radian.

  2. IB Math Methods SL: Internal Assessment on Gold Medal Heights

    The hypothetical height records are based upon the fact that there was a war going on; that athletes were not being competitive due to bigger pressures from the government to pay attention to the war, and not a superficial sporting event.

    First of all, I will link all the points together to show a lined curve Figure 2 the curve of linking all data points of winning gold medal heights. The graph shows an upward sloping curve which is very irregular.

    However, a linear function does not have enough variables and since the graph does not have a direct linear relationship, a more suitable function would be a polynomial equation. A quartic function is suitable for this set of data because there are 5 variables in a quartic function.
