Visualizing the Geometric Series.
Bennett, Albert B., Jr.
Mathematics Teacher, v82 n2 p130-36 Feb 1989
Mathematical proofs often leave students unconvinced or without understanding of what has been proved, because they provide no visual-geometric representation. Presented are geometric models for the finite geometric series when r is a whole number, and the infinite geometric series when r is the reciprocal of a whole number. (MNS)
