In this last lesson, Professor Fraser will provide a brief introduction on Mathematical Induction. Starting with the Math Induction Principle, you will then move onto Counter Examples before ending Algebra II with four examples.
Remember to do the
case of n = 1 (the base case). This is usually very simple.
Always use the
information in the case of n = k to prove the case of n = k + 1.
Often factoring or a clever multiplication will work.
To find a
counter-example, start with small values of n and increase by 1
until you find one.
