Students use an infinite geometric series to find altitudes of a hot air balloon.
Visit MathNspired.com for additional Action Consequence activities and information.
Students will use an infinite geometric series to find altitudes of a hot air balloon. Students will first learn what makes the application problem an infinite geometric series.
Students will use a formula and sigma notation to find partial sums that give the altitude of the hot air balloon at a given minute. They will then find the maximum altitude of the balloon.
