- Students will find roots to equations using the recursive algorithm Fixed Point Iteration (FPI) and will visualize the algorithm as a cobweb plot.
- recursive sequence
- convergent sequence
- Fixed Point Iteration
- cobweb plot
About the Lesson
This lesson involves finding roots to equations using a method similar to those used by many calculators.
As a result, students will:
- Find roots using a recursive sequence - Fixed Point Iteration.
- Visualize this root-finding recursive sequence as a cobweb plot.
