# Ch 27: Mathematical Sequences and Series: Tutoring Solution

The Mathematical Sequences and Series chapter of this High School Precalculus Tutoring Solution is a flexible and affordable path to learning about sequences and series in math. These simple and fun video lessons are each about five minutes long and they teach all of the operations involving mathematical sequences and series required in a typical high school precalculus course.

## How it works:

• Begin your assignment or other precalculus work.
• Identify the math sequences and series concepts that you're stuck on.
• Find fun videos on the topics you need to understand.
• Press play, watch and learn!
• Complete the quizzes to test your understanding.
• As needed, submit a question to one of our instructors for personalized support.

## Who's it for?

This chapter of our high school precalculus tutoring solution will benefit any student who is trying to learn math sequences and series and earn better grades. This resource can help students including those who:

• Struggle with understanding factorial notation, summation notation and mathematical series, arithmetic and geometric series or any other math sequences and series topic
• Have limited time for studying
• Want a cost effective way to supplement their math learning
• Prefer learning math visually
• Find themselves failing or close to failing their mathematical sequences and series unit
• Want to get ahead in precalculus

## Why it works:

• Engaging Tutors: We make learning math sequences and series simple and fun.
• Cost Efficient: For less than 20% of the cost of a private tutor, you'll have unlimited access 24/7.
• Consistent High Quality: Unlike a live precalculus tutor, these video lessons are thoroughly reviewed.
• Convenient: Imagine a tutor as portable as your laptop, tablet or smartphone. Learn mathematical sequences and series on the go!
• Learn at Your Pace: You can pause and rewatch lessons as often as you'd like, until you master the material.
