To Infinity and Beyond!

Published on 06/09/2008

Activity Overview

Students' develop an understanding of what it means to take a limit at infinity. They learn to estimate limits from graphs and tables of values.

Key Steps

  • Image

    First, students will examine, graphically and numerically, the behavior of functions as the input approaches infinity.

  • Image

    Next, students will examine graphically limits that do not exist because of continued chaotic output behavior as the input values continue to approach a particular value.

  • Image

    Finally, students will examine a variety of limit problems.
