Reflection: Complex Tasks Techniques for Finding Limits - Section 2: Share and Explore


While students were working on finding the limit for one of the problems, a student asked a great question - is 0/0 the only indeterminate form or would something like 1/0 also be considered indeterminate form? This was something I definitely wanted to address with the entire class so I wrote it on the board so we could come back to it later.

During the discussion we thought of a really easy function that we could use to address this question (y = 1/x) and we saw that there was no limit when it was in this form. I like this process of jotting down the question on the board as it keeps a record of the important questions we need to address as a class.
