In this lesson on Comparison Tests, students learn about the ratio and root tests as well as comparisons with p series. They also learn how to determine if a series converges or diverges by using either the ratio or root test, and they explore examples of each. Additionally, students learn how to compare a series with a geometric series and how to apply the limit comparison test.
