One Sided Limits

Activity Overview

Students will graph piecewise functions and be asked to evaluate both the left hand limit and the right hand limit of the function as x approaches a given number, c.

Key Steps

  • Image

    Students will graph piecewise functions and be asked to evaluate both the left hand limit and the right hand limit of the function as x approaches a given number, c. The Trace feature will be used to graphically estimate the one sided limit.

  • Image

    Students will also use a table of values of each function to numerically verify that the values of the function to left and right of c are approaching the same number.
