Product Description

This resource contains total of 16 FINITE limits. Students will apply the properties of limits and evaluate the limits algebraically by factoring and substitution methods. They will also need to use basic trig limits and identities to solve the limits of trig functions. The limits in this activity can all be found without L’Hopital’s rule.

The packet has 2 worksheets:

⟐ The first worksheet has the students solving 8 limits of rational functions.

⟐ The second worksheet is solving 8 limits of trigonometric functions.

The worksheets can be used as extra practice, for enrichment, an assessment or homework.

It can be also used as a partner activity – like that: Partner A will solve WS # 1 while Partner B solves WS # 2, then they swap papers and Partner A will solve WS # 2 while Partner B solves WS # 1. Once they have completed the work, they compare their results. If there are different answers to one and the same problem, students have to identify and correct any errors.

This is the first part of my worksheets on Computing Limits. The second part contains 16 problems too - 8 limits of functions involving radicals (square, cube and fourth roots) and 8 more complicated limits of functions involving combinations of polynomial, radical and trig functions. Here the link of it:

Computing limits 2 - 16 more complicated problems of functions involving combinations of polynomials, radicals and trig functions

These two items are included in my

Calculus - Limits BUNDLE ( 5 Activities plus 3 WS packets)

and

Calculus BIG BUNDLE -Limits, Derivatives, Integrals (over 500 problems)
