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.


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.


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.


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.
