Hi, I´m a new AP teacher and I have two questions:
1) How is correct to say and write for an answer if the limit does not exist: for example "The limit does not exist" or "No limit" ???
2) If the student is calculating a limit, and the instruction was determinate it numerically for example when x approches 3 and he replaced x in f(x)for 2.9 and gotten a value very close to the rihgt value, is it correct to do that???? because if he replace 3 instead of 2.9 the limit is undefained.
