I'm working on some practice problems for my complex analysis course, and I'm having trouble with uniform convergence. The question asks whether the following series converges uniformly for $|z|<1$: $$ \sum_{n=1}^{\infty} \frac{z^n}{n^2} $$ I'm not really sure how to proceed with this question. I know that the Weierstrass M test would give me uniform convergence if I could find a series of real numbers that are always larger than the magnitude of the terms in my complex series, but I the only series I can think of is $\sum_{n=1}^{\infty} \frac{1}{n} > \sum_{n=1}^{\infty} |\frac{z^n}{n^2}|$ and that diverges.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
