Limits of Trig Functions. This lesson is designed for AP Calculus AB, BC, Calculus Honors, or College Calculus 1. This topic is covered in Unit One, Limits. Students are to find the limits of trigonometric functions, some of which use basic identities, and others use the special Limits", sin x /x, 1 - cos x / x, and variations of them.
Limits at Infinity This great activity is designed for Calculus 1 or AP Calculus. It is part of the third unit, Applications of the Derivative. Students are to find the limits of various functions as x approaches infinity. Determining these limits will help students find the horizontal asymptotes of the curve and to determine end behavior, necessary for curve sketching.
Calculus Continuity Foldable Engaging Activity. This resource is designed for all first semester Calculus students. It is from unit two, Limits and Continuity. The trifold contains three activities in one, is paper friendly, and can be used in Interactive Notebooks if desired
This is a clip from mean girls and was used as pop culture integration in a math class when I was in high school. Although I wasn’t in the particular math class, everyone who was in it was raving about the day they used Mean Girls in class. It was a calculus class, and they were learning about limits, which is what Lindsay Lohan is trying to solve in the clip. The teacher asked them to solve the limit, and the interesting thing is that Lindsay Lohan is actually wrong.
