Tool: Limits with Delta and Epsilon
Tool Thumbnail

Go to: (opens a new window)
Description: This activity builds on the previous activity, Limits with Tables. Students investigate limits using tools for controlling delta and epsilon, giving them a concrete, hands-on understanding of the formal definition of a limit. Students start by investigating the limit at a point discontinuity, then use the same techniques to investigate other types of discontinuities. This activity is part of a series of Sketchpad activities introducing the main topics of calculus.
