These two summaries can serve as reference sheets or students when determining whether an infinite series converges or diverges. Each summary contains the name of each test, when it is most useful, and how to apply it.
Version 1 is already filled out and can be used as a quick reference. Version 2 is a more student-friendly version, and includes a blank version that students can fill out with teacher guidance. I have generally used Version 1 for my own (teacher) reference, and I help students fill out Version 2 a little at a time as we work through our unit on series.
The following tests are included:
- n-th Term Test
- Geometric Series Test
- p-Series Test
- Direct Comparison Test
- Limit Comparison Test
- Ratio Test
- Integral Test
- Alternating Series Test (Leibniz Theorem)
* Note: Version 2 also includes the Root Test, which is not a required part of the AP Calculus BC curriculum.
