# Lesson Plan: Limits and Limit Notation Mathematics

This lesson plan includes the objectives, prerequisites, and exclusions of the lesson teaching students how to use limit notation and explore the concept of a limit.

#### Objectives

Students will be able to

• recognize and interpret limit notation,
• understand the concept of a limit,
• understand how the value of a limit at a point is distinct from the value of a function at a point,
• evaluate the limit of a function from a table or a graph.

#### Prerequisites

Students should already be familiar with

• the concept of removable discontinuities (although not necessarily the classification or rigorous definition),
• hollow and filled dots represented on a graph.

#### Exclusions

Students will not cover

• the epsilon–delta definition of a limit,
• one-sided limits,
• limits involving infinities and indeterminate forms,
• discontinuities (other than removable ones),
• the definition of continuity,
• the definition of differentiability.
