# Lesson Plan: Conditional and Absolute Convergence Mathematics

This lesson plan includes the objectives, prerequisites, and exclusions of the lesson teaching students how to determine if a series is absolutely convergent, conditionally convergent, or divergent.

#### Objectives

Students will be able to

• know what it means for a series to be absolutely convergent or conditionally convergent,
• find whether a series is absolutely convergent, conditionally convergent, or divergent,
• know that any rearranging of terms of an absolutely convergent series will yield the same sum.

#### Prerequisites

Students should already be familiar with

• the definition of a series,
• the concepts of convergence and divergence for series,
• geometric series and series,
• alternating series and their convergence test,
• the integral test for series,
• the term divergence test.

#### Exclusions

Students will not cover

• the ratio test for series.
