Making Limits Exist

Published on 02/18/2015

Activity 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.
