Calculus: Making Limits Exist
by Texas Instruments

Published on February 18, 2015

Overview

In this activity, students will graph piecewise functions and evaluate numerically and graphically the left hand limit and the right hand limit of the function as x approaches a given number, c.

Key Steps

  • Image

    Before changing the value of a, students will graphically estimate the limit of f(x) as x approaches 1 from the left and the right.

  • Image

    Before changing the value of a, students will graphically estimate the limit of g(x) as x approaches 1 from the left and the right.

  • Image

    Before changing the value of a, students will graphically estimate the limit of h(x) as x approaches 1 from the left and the right.
