DOL: Attitudes & Perceptions

Objective: Students will be able to define and find limits by looking at the graph of a function.

Activities: 1. Grouping Activity students will get into groups of 3 - 4 2. Discovering Limits group work 3. Notes intro to limits by graphing 4. Think-Pair-Share solving limits by graphing worksheet

Closure: Assign HW

Reflection:

Notes Intro to limits Importance of Limits: 1. Limits allow us to work with _______________________that we didnt have the ________________ to consider previously EX: functions with ______________________________ functions that ______________________________ these are the most important functions for modern applications of mathematics.

2. Limits allow us to work more effectively with the _____________________________________ ____________________________________________________. 3. The _________________________________________ is built on limits. All calculus _______________________ and the definitions of derivatives and integrals use limits (if just implicitly). Motivating Example 1: f(x) =

Left- and right-sided limit notation and limits involving infinity. Revisiting Example 1:

g. f (0)

h. f (1)

Intuitive Definition of Limit (version 2, from Stewart):

Summary and extension: Whether or not a the limit of a function exists at a point, c , has __________ to do with whether or not ___________ exists. In other words, limits can _______________ holes in the function.

Practice: p. 79 #1 15 odd

Notes Intro to limits Importance of Limits: 1. Limits allow us to work with TOOLS FUNCTIONS that we didnt have the

to consider previously

these are the most important functions for modern applications of mathematics.

2. Limits allow us to work more effectively with the IMPOSSIBLY LARGE AND SMALL VALUES THAT OCCUR IN THESE FUNCTIONS. 3. The FOUNDATION OF CALCULUS is built on limits. All calculus THEOREMS implicitly). Motivating Example 1: f(x) = and the definitions of derivatives and integrals use limits (if just

The limit of a function is the value that the function gets arbitrarily close to as x gets arbitrarily close to some number. In other words, when x gets close to some number (x0), then y gets close to some number (L). We call L the limit.

Left- and right-sided limit notation and limits involving infinity.

x 1+

lim f ( x) means

x 1

Revisiting Example 1:

f. lim f ( x) x0

l. lim f ( x ) x

Reasons that Limits Fail to Exist at a Point (keep in mind the example):

Summary and extension: Whether or not a the limit of a function exists at a point, c , has NOTHING to do with whether or not

f(c) exists. In other words, limits can IGNORE holes in the function.

Homework: Stewart, pages 7981, numbers 410, 13 Go over left- and right-sided limit notation and limits involving infinity. Important Note: lim f ( x) = L if and only if lim+ f ( x) = L and lim f ( x ) = L

x a x a x a

Group Practice: from Anton, exercise set 2.1. Students should write the important note at the top. Intuitive Definition of Limit (version 2, from Stewart):

We write values of

f ( x)

arbitrarily close to

a ).

f ( x) as x approaches a , equals L if we can make the L (as close to L as we like) by taking x to be sufficiently close to a

Brainstorm Reasons that Limits Fail to Exist at a Point: The one-sided limits arent equal to the same limit at that point. The function becomes infinite at that point (more on this later). The function oscillates wildly at that point (more on this later). Summary: Whether or not a the limit of a function exists at a point, c , has nothing to do with whether or not f (c) exists. In other words, limits can ignore holes in the function. Homework: Stewart, pages 7981, numbers 410, 13
