By "partial fractions", 1/(2n-1)(2n+1)= (1/2)/(2n-1)+ (1/2)/(2n+1).

Write the first several terms out in that form and see what happens.

You have a sign error! Should be 1/(2n-1)(2n+1)= (1/2)/(2n-1) -(1/2)/(2n+1).

Then what did you get for, say, the first 5 terms?

You have a sign error! Should be 1/(2n-1)(2n+1)= (1/2)/(2n-1) -(1/2)/(2n+1).
Ouch! The fact that one is positive and the other negative is what makes it all work!
