Math 9C Midterm 1 Study Guide C. Pro - Fall 2011 The test will cover 12.1-12.7 and you should also know the how to do the problems assigned in 8.8. The following questions are at the boundary of what I want you to know. Most of the problems I ask will be easier than the ones listed below, but none will be more difficult. 1 Concept questions What is the difference between a sequence and a series? There is no difference, a sequence is a list of numbers, a series is also sequence (a sequnceof partial sums) Can you give the definition of what it means for a sequence to converge? A sequence { a n } converges if for every > 0, there is a number L and an integer N such that for every k > N , then | a k - L | < What is the definition for a series to converge? A series converges if its sequence of partial sums converges. If the a k ’s are nonnegative, why does this say the sequence of partial sums is an increasing sequence? If { s n } is the sequence of partial sums, then s n +1 - s n = a n +1 0 and so the s n s are increasing. What is the Monotone bounded convergence theorem? A sequence { a n } that is monotone and bounded must converge. Can you explain how the integral test is used to show your sequence of partial sums is bounded? The area under the curve of f ( x ) is larger than the sum of the rectangles with area a k where f ( k ) = a k . If R 1 f ( x ) dx converges to some nubmer M , this means that the s n ’s are bounded above by this number. How did we come up with the p -test? We used the integral test with the function f ( x ) = 1 x p How are the integral test and the comparison test similar? Both determine conver- gence or divergence of a series a k by knowledge of the convergence or divergence of something else. In the case of the integral test, the convergence or divergence of an improper integral and in the case of the comparison test, the convergence or divergence of another series.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
