Journal Article

© THE MATHEMATICAL ASSOCIATION OF AMERICA. Illustrative, elementary counterexamples are hard to come by. In this note we propose an elementary, closed-form counterexample to a generalization of the classic integral test where the condition of monotonicity is relaxed. The analysis only uses techniques accessible to a second-semester calculus student.
