Lesson Plan: Evaluating Limits Using Algebraic Techniques Mathematics
This lesson plan includes the objectives, prerequisites, and exclusions of the lesson teaching students how to use algebraic techniques like factorization to evaluate limits.
Students will be able to
- use algebraic techniques to eliminate a term in the numerator and denominator of an algebraic fraction in order to evaluate a limit.
Students should already be familiar with
- polynomial factorization,
- limit notation,
- evaluating limits by direct substitution.
Students will not cover
- limits at infinity and unbounded limits.
