Abstract

In this article, I suggest that calculus instruction should include a wider variety of examples of convergent and divergent series than is usually demonstrated. In particular, a number of convergent series, such as (Formula present) are considered, and their exact values are found in a straightforward manner. We explore and utilize a number of mathematical topics, including manipulation of certain power series and recurrences.
