Lesson Plan: Limit Comparison Test Mathematics

This lesson plan includes the objectives, prerequisites, and exclusions of the lesson teaching students how to determine whether a series is convergent or divergent by comparing it to a series of known convergence using the limit comparison test.

Objectives

Students will be able to

  • determine whether a series is convergent or divergent by comparing it to a series of known convergence using the limit comparison test.

Prerequisites

Students should already be familiar with

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

Exclusions

Students will not cover

  • the alternating series test.
