Lesson: 9.1 Sequences ____________________________ Lesson: 9.1 Sequences Goals: Write terms of a sequence and simplify factorial expressions DOD An infinite sequence is a function whose domain is the set of positive integers. The function values are the terms of the sequence. If the domain of the function consists of the first positive integers only, then the sequence is a finite sequence. Sometimes we will start at , and sometimes we will start at . The context of the problem will make it clear if we do not start at . A recursive sequence is defined by the first couple of terms and how to find the next term. Ex. Fibonacci Sequence Factorial If is a positive integer, is defined by As a special case, Ex. Ch_9 Page 1 Ex. Examples Find the first 4 terms of the given sequence. Find the first 4 terms of the given recursive sequence. Simplify the factorial expression. Remember: Ch_9 Page 2 Simplify the factorial expression. Remember: Ch_9 Page 3 ...
