Please see the attached video narrative for a suggested extension of the worksheet. If you find yourself fitting this addition into the lesson, you may want to create a "new section" of your lesson and gather all of the students attention. (For a more personalized feel with greater audience participation, you could also talk to the whole class broken into 2-3 different groups.)

# Investigating Infinite Geometric Series

Lesson 10 of 15

## Objective: Students will be able to dive into a study of the uniqueness of convergence of infinite geometric series.

## Big Idea: The last several lessons have been highly practical and focused on real world application. This lesson further emphasizes mathematical questioning associated with behavior of infinite geometric series.

*45 minutes*

#### Homework Time

*15 min*

Circulate the homework sheet. This emphasizes a wide variety of problems:

1) Finding if a series has a sum

2) Finding the sum of the first several terms

3) Finding the sum of an infinite number of terms

4) Real World Application (bouncy ball problem)

- Requires the students to Reason Abstractly (**MP 2**)

5) Making use of structure to analyze infinite arithmetic series (**MP 7**)
