Math Focus: Mainly analysis and algebra
Remember that the terms $a_n$ can be negative as well as positive. You can then select your $a_n$ such that $\sum a_n$ and $\sum (-1)^n a_n^2$ are conditionally convergent, and thus $\sum a_n^2$ is not convergent because every term is positive.
Thanks from topsquark and Jaket1
