This activity is intended to help students bridge the gap between the graphing of rational functions encountered in Algebra 2 and the level of analysis expected in precalculus and calculus. (I use it in my AP Calculus courses.) Using graphical representations to investigate one-sided limits and types of discontinuity leads to a better understanding of continuity. *Form B of this activity can be used to reinforce these concepts or as an assessment.
Thanks so much! It's going to take me a while to think of my work as a "product" - have never even imagined what it might be "worth" in terms of money or selling it before. I'm definitely with you though, I'm always looking for items that I can use in the classroom. I've bought so many booklets and things over the years at conferences because I found one or two things that I would use. TpT is a refreshing alternative!!
I saw your store on the home page of Teachers Pay Teachers; so, I thought I would look at your freebie. I left you a rating. Well done! And thanks so much for remembering to make an answer key. Since you are new to the TPT world, here are a few suggestions that might help you to better market your products.
Create a cover page for each of your products which can then be used as an attractive thumbnail to entice buyers. You might also add a second page which is a directions or suggestions page for the teacher. (How do use this? When? Etc.) List several ways you use this product in your classroom. Never assume that a buyer knows how, why, or when to use your product.
Use the footer to put the copyright symbol, your name and date of creation on EVERY page. Items, especially free ones, have been "stolen" from TPT and posted on other sites to be sold. You have to protect all of your creations. Also number your pages. Finally, unless you want your products revised (I do for my tests) save everything in a PDF format as it is harder to change.
I think it is important that we see what others are doing; so, feel free to look at any or all of my freebies listed below for ideas.
Wow!! Thanks so much for all of the helpful information! I really appreciate your welcoming response to my work and look forward to following you as well. Any constructive criticisms would also be greatly appreciated. I do truly believe the great teachers are always learning. I don't consider myself great because I'm always finding more to learn. My beloved high school math teacher and mentor used to always say that she would continue to teach as long as she was learning. So true!
