Equation Conversion
equations in polar form have r in terms of
example : r = 4cos
these equations can be graphed using
the calculator or by hand
to convert equations between
rectangular form and polar form use:
x = r cos
y = r sin
r =x +y

Projectile Motion
simulating projectiles shot straight up
x=t
y = -16t2 + v0t + y0
v0 = initial velocity y0 = initial height
this shows the height against time, if you want
it to look like its going straight up and down,
use x = 5 instead of x = t

Unit Vectors
a vector with magnitude of 1 is called a
unit vector
to find a unit vector, u, in the direction
of a vector v, use:
v
u=

there are two standard unit vectors:
i = 1, 0
and
j = 0, 1

Infinite Series
when an infinite number of terms are added
together the expression is called an
infinite series
an infinite series is not a true sum (if you
add an infinite number of 2s together
the sum is not a real number)
yet interestingly, sometime

Sequences
a sequence is an ordered progression of
numbers
they can be finite (a countable # of terms)
or infinite (continue endlessly)
a sequence can be thought of as a function
that assigns a unique number an to each
natural number n
an represents th

Binomial Distribution
used for probability with n independent
repetitions of an experiment with two
outcomes, called success and failure
P(success) = p and P(failure) = q
let r be the number of successes out of
n attempts, its probability is:
n r nr

Binomial Expansion
expanding (a + b)4 by repeatedly using the
distributive property would be a very
time consuming process
this can be made easier by using the
Binomial Theorem which will be
introduced in this section
this theorem will make expansions
