 a) Show that Leibniz' theorem on the convergence of alternating series applies to the alternating harmonic series. (See Table 8.2.2.)
 b) Use Maple to show that the sequence of partial sums converges to $\mathrm{ln}\left(2\right)$.
 c) Test the claim that a partial sum is closer to the sum than the magnitude of the first neglected term.
