Description:

The purpose of the first part of this video is to introduce the idea of summation and its notation using the Greek-letter Sigma. We practice working with sums by using Gauss's summation trick. In the second part of the video, we study examples of infinite series, one which converges to a finite number (geometric series), and one which diverges (harmonic series).
