## Lesson Plan

Leap Frog Review Game:

In this lesson students will demonstrate their knowledge of limits, graphing, and exact trig limits evaluated using substitution. The students will play a game in which they evaluate their knowledge of problems in the unit while it serves as a formative assessment for the teacher. The students receive immediate feedback on their work while the teacher works the problems, correcting errors or misconceptions. This lesson gives the student a power review of the concepts in the unit because the timing is determined by the teacher. All students are engaged and focused while playing this game. Giving students access to the PowerPoint of the game after the lesson provides a good study tool for the students.

## Text Resource

No Limits For Usain:

This informational text resource is intended to support reading in the content area. The text uses the story of Usain Bolt and his quest to reduce his world record in the 100 meter race to raise the question of whether there is a limit to hisâ€”or any human'sâ€”athleticism. The article uses number series, limits, and convergent and divergent series to prove that, hypothetically at least, a world record will go on reducing beyond any limit. A logistic curve is shown to model the data.
