LIMITS from a graph.
-A calculus F.I.B. (Fill In the Blank for Constitution Day or for any day when you feel historical)
Are you looking for a way to commemorate Constitution Day?
OR do you just need to engage your students as they practice identifying limits from a graph?
This resource takes care of that need.
I love finding activities that bring other disciplines into the math class. This happens more often in elementary and middle school, but the high school student typically does math-only in math class.
This activity engages calculus students in finding the limits from graphs and then learning numerical facts about the Constitution. These questions probably won’t be on their history exam, but they are interesting to know.
Included are three different functions. They each have points of discontinuity that create opportunities to analyze the limit as x approaches different values. There are 12 multiple choice questions.
Suggested ways to use the questions are included.
Check out the preview to see if this activity is right for your students.
