For this first lab in Calculus 172, our purpose was to use the computing software Mathematica to help us approximate an integral using Left Riemann Sums. While many integrals can be computed by using
In Lab4, our goal was to examine intervals of convergence of power series and the functions they represent. To do this, we took a list of various power series and evaluated them in summation notation.
In lab 3, our main focus was to represent percentage of a population in the form of a bar graph. Our pre-lab hypothesis which we were to test was whether increasing the amount of intervals by decreasi
. We did this by inputting it into the program Joy of Mathematica and evaluating for the integers 1-10. Our results saw that as p increased, so did Gamma(P). Looking even closely at the data, we notic
