6. Numerical Solutions of Equations

Course Information

You will learn how to:

  • locate approximately a root of an equation, by means of graphical considerations and/or searching for a sign change
  • understand the idea of, and use the notation for, a sequence of approximations that converges to a root of an equation
  • understand how a given simple iterative formula of the form {x}_{n+1}=F({x}_n) relates to the equation being solved, and use a given iteration, or an iteration based on a given rearrangement of an equation, to determine a root to a prescribed degree of accuracy.

Technical Guide:
Take note of the following…
1. All videos are hosted on Youtube. For the best learning experience, follow the guidelines on this page “Tech Guide for students“.
2. Lessons are in succession. Thus, Lesson 1 must be completed before you can have access to Lesson 2, Lesson 2 must be completed before Lesson 3, etc. When you finish a lesson, you must click on the “Mark Complete” button at the bottom of the page.
