The use of spreadsheets in introducing students to the concept of a limit of a sequence is demonstrated and the possible computer-based scenario as the enhancement of the teaching/learning process of calculus is exemplified. It is shown how the spreadsheet's operational capability assists visualizing the Bolzano-Cauchy principle of convergence and leads eventually to the possibility of employing computer technology in deciding the convergence of positive series.
