Let f(x) = x 2 6 and po = 1. Use Newton's method to find pi

Survey of Math Week 1 Notes Section 1.1: Problem Solving George Poyla’s Problem-Solving Method: 1. Understand what the question is asking. 2. Create a plan to solve the question. 3. Execute your plan to get an answer. 4. Check the answer that you get. Strategies to help solve math problems: Draw pictures (Trees, bar graphs, pie charts, etc.). Choose good names for unknown variables. Be systematic. Look for patterns. Try a simpler version of the problem. Rewrite the problem in a way that is familiar. Make guesses (At least as a place to start tackling the problem). Key Principles: Always Principle: If something is mathematically proven to be true, then it is always true.
