Overview

In this activity, students learn to identify geometric series. They determine if a sequence converges and also learn to calculate the sum of numbers in a geometric series.

Key Steps

  • Image

    Students will evaluate the convergence and sum of a geometric series.

  • Image

    Students will identify a series that satisfies the alternating series test.

  • Image

    Students will use the graphing calculator to approximate the sum of a series.
