About This Course

Published 2/2016 English

Course Description

In my course, you can broadly learn some basic sequences and series, from arithmetic and geometric progression to Fibonacci sequence and some methods to test the convergence or divergence of series.

You can apply this knowledge not only in tests, but also in math modeling projects, design algorithm in computer programming and even appreciate the beauty of nature (like Fibonacci sequence and golden ratio in life).

When I did a project in Math modeling on decide the appropriate locations to put traffic signs under road construction time, I used the knowledge of sequence to give out a solution. Moreover, in the time of big data, it's important to find order in disorder and optimize the problems.

What are the requirements?

  • basic arithmetic and calculus techniques

What am I going to get from this course?

  • understand typical sequences and series; judge whether a series is convergent or divergent
  • use this knowledge in math modeling projects and in computer programming

What is the target audience?

  • all students

Instructor Biography

Lin Jierui, Science Instructor at Udemy

Although I’m now just a student of Nanjing Foreign Language School, I deepened my interest in Math by watching online lectures and doing math modeling projects. Since I have learnt AP calculus by myself and got a 5 in the test, I’m sure this course will be accurate and you will get a lot from it.
