# 2019 CED Unit 10: Infinite Sequences and Series

Unit 10 covers sequences and series. These are BC only topics (CED – 2019 p. 177 – 197). These topics account for about 17 – 18% of questions on the BC exam. Topics 10.1 – 10.2 Topic 10.1: Defining Convergent and Divergent Series. Topic 10. 2: Working with Geometric Series. Including the formula for the sum…

# Which Convergence Test Should I Use? Part 1

One common question from students first learning about series is how to know which convergence test to use with a given series.  The first answer is: practice, practice, practice. The second answer is that there is often more than one convergence test that can be used with a given series. I will illustrate this point…

# Sequences and Series

AP Type Question 10 Sequences and Series – for BC only Convergence tests for series appear on both sections of the BC Calculus exam. In the multiple-choice section students may be asked to say if a sequence or series converges or which of several series converge. The Ratio test is used most often to determine…
