Divergent series facts for kids
If a series converges, the individual terms of the series must approach zero. Thus any series in which the individual terms do not approach zero diverges. However, convergence is a stronger condition: not all series whose terms approach zero converge. A counterexample is the harmonic series
The divergence of the harmonic series was proven by the medieval mathematician Nicole Oresme.
