1.1 Finding Limits Graphically and Numerically
This is the first lesson in the Limits Unit. The lesson contains Guided Notes, homework, SmartBoard lesson, and all solutions. Don’t forget the added bonus of a math joke embedded into the Smartboard lesson ☺! You have the option to purchase the video lesson to the notes.
In this lesson students will discover when a limit exists or doesn’t exist as a graph and as a table. I always explain to my students that a limit has to be on a “road” aka the graph. This is why you will see in the notes the use of little cars to explain the left-hand limit and the right-hand limit. The cars will need to meet in order to have a limit. If they don’t, it will not exist.
I hope you find the notes easy to follow. Please feel free to offer any suggestions on how to make them better as well! Through a community of collaboration, we can find that “sweet spot” for our students and their learning process.
All the best,
