Reviewer Comments:

Content included here is ratios, functions and limits. The exercise encourages the use of a graphing calculator to help students watch the behavior of the graph reveal the limit. This resource uses the New York subway system as an example; not being familiar with this system may cause you some confusion and you may want to choose another example to illustrate this concept. The CRT notes there is no answer key and no suggested student responses or extension ideas included in this exercise.
