Test
The math word "test" is referenced in the pages listed below.
The alternating series test is used to test for convergence when the terms of the underlying sequence alternate. Interactive calculus applet.
The comparison test provides a way to use the convergence of a series we know to help us determine the convergence of a new series. Interactive calculus applet.
The integral test provides a means to testing whether a series converges or diverges. Interactive calculus applet.
The limit comparison test is similar to the comparison test in that you use another series to show the convergence or divergence of a desired series. Interactive calculus applet.
The ratio test is helpful for determining the convergence of a series when the terms grow very large as n increases. Interactive calculus applet.
