In this discussion I give an explanation of the divergence and convergence of infinite series through the building blocks problem and at the same time I touch on the fact that mathematics is not just about manipulating complicated numerical formulas but also a field in which logical ways of thought are learnt. I emphasize that in order to overcome the aversion of university students to mathematics, teachers must pour their energies into developing study materials taken from topics relevant to the students.
