Sequences and Series of Constants Plotter
Course Topic(s): One-Variable Calculus | Infinite Limits, Sequences and Series
The applet shows graphically and numerically consecutive terms of a sequence or consecutive partial sums of a series. The user enters a formula for a sequence or a series and the terms are plotted. Many examples and practice problems are given. The applet illustrates many concepts associated with convergence and divergence of sequences and series, including the speed of convergence, subsequences, and Weyl's Theorem on Uniform Distribution. It provides a quick and easy illustration that finding limits of sequences by evaluating a few terms can be misleading.
