Topic: Sum of Geometric Series

Entry Characteristics: Ratios and Sequences (Algebra 1)

Grade: 12

Objective: Students will be able to identify what is a geometric series and learn how to solve for

it using the formula. Students will recognize the value of pennies.

CCSSM Addressed: CCSS.Math.Content.HSA-SSE.B.4 Derive the formula for the sum of a

finite geometric series (when the common ratio is not 1), and use the formula to solve problems.

For example, calculate mortgage payments.

Resources and Materials: Instructions, Formula, Doubling Pennies Activity sheet

Procedures:

1. Quick lesson on geometric series

2. See if they can come up with formula of the sum of geometric series and explain it

3. Have them break up into groups of 3-4 and hand out a penny activity sheet where they

will discover which is greater, double the amount of pennies per day for a month or 1

million dollar.

4. They will then solve geometric series problem for the nth term using the formula given.

5. Circulate the class and make sure they are using the formula correctly

6. Make sure the students understand the pattern and formula of the geometric series

7. Results of the penny activity sheet for n=30.

30=

In pennies:

s

1,073,741,823

In dollar form:

30=

s

$10,737,418.23

Closure/Homework: Ask to name one thing they learned in class. Then, for homework students

will take home a worksheet with three problems for them to solve using the sum of geometric

series formula for different cases.

Follow-up: Go over homework problems in next class. Go over more examples of geometric

Assessment: Informal Assessment

I will observe the class as they are working on the problems on geometric series and see if they

are getting it or if they are stuck. I will use thumbs up thumbs down on how they feel about the

lesson. I will also have discussions and ask the following questions during the lesson:

1.

2.

3.

4.

5.

Can you come up with a formula?

What is happening to the numbers?

Who can tell me why it increases so rapidly?

Name other examples of geometric series

Geometric Series- A geometric series is defined as having a constant ratio between consecutive

terms.

Formula for sum of Geometric Series:

2. Solve for n=30 using the formula for the sum of a geometric series. Turn your answer into

dollar form.

3. Discuss another way you could have found the formula by looking at the table.
