In this calculus worksheet, student solve problems by taking the derivative of the function as x approaches a specific limit. They evaluate trig functions using the properties of trig. There are 26 questions with an answer key.
How does the point of view of Poe's protagonist in "The Tell-Tale Heart" contribute to the suspenseful tone? Help your middle schoolers identify the point of view in a literary work with this lesson, which goes on to discuss the limitations of first-person point of view. Consider adding this lesson to your unit on point of view, or around Halloween to give your readers a chill!
Students are introduced to their First Amendment rights and the limits to their freedom of speech and press in school. They examine the Tinker vs. Des Moines School Supreme Court Case.
Fifth graders examine and define the carrying capacity as the limit to the number of individuals of a species that a habitat can support. They view a transparency of a field habitat and discuss how many fish can live there, then play a Carrying Capacity Game in small groups.
Students explore the concept of piecewise functions.  In this piecewise functions lesson, students discuss how to make a piecewise function continuous and differentiable.  Students use their Ti-89 to find the limit of the function as it approaches a given x value.  Students find the derivative of piecewise functions.
In this stoichiometry worksheet, students interpret a chemical equation, determine number of moles produced or mass of product, and solve for the limiting reactant for reactions. This worksheet has 25 problems to solve.
Students explore the realm and limits of science. Engages students to give examples of topics that can be studied by science, and those that cannot. This also takes a examine descriptive terms, which reflect the true nature of modern science.
Learners assume identities of lawmakers, judges, writers, and protestors during times in American history when freedoms of speech and press were limited because country was on the brink of war or fighting one. Students use primary source documents to evaluate issues of freedom of speech and the press versus national security and public safety, and draft new constitutional amendment that clearly defines government's powers in times of national crisis.
In this quantities in chemistry worksheet, students solve 13 review problems about percent composition, significant digits, the mole, simple and molecular formulas, balancing equations, stoichiometry, limiting reagents and percent yields.
Students explore the five senses and the significance of each sense. In this five senses and diversity lesson, students listen to You Can't Smell a Flower With Your Ear by Joanna Cole and take a walk observing opportunities to use all five senses. Students participate in a variety of hands-on activities, including those in which the use of their senses is limited. Students discuss the impact these limitations place on one's life.
In this functions instructional activity, students identify the domain and range of a function.  They find the slope of a line.  Students determine the limits of an equation and note the discontinuous and continuous functions.  This three-page instructional activity contains 14 multiple-choice problems.
Students read several historical folktales and identify the type of folktales represented by the stories. They define hospitality, describe its characteristics and determine if it has limits.
Students study the individual rights enshrined in the U.S. Constitution. They determine where these rights come from, and why we value them as we do. They consider that our individual rights are not absolute, and may be limited by other compelling public interests.
Students are able to recognize that scientists use different definitions of species. They are able to assess the strengths and limitations of species definitions depending on their context. Students are able to use definitions of species to enhance their understanding of speciation. They are able to understand the concept of taxonomy and biodiversity inventories.
Ninth graders brainstorm words they typically use to label each other, discuss effects of labeling, including reinforcement of stereotypes, and experience potentially harming and limiting effects that labels have by participating in interactive classroom activity.
Students explore the realities of feeding a family on a very limited budget by comparing the cost of living in the 1930s to the cost of living today. Using primary documents and technology to make the comparison, they identify the impact of the economy on citizens' health and welfare. Students also engage their natural interest in eating and to identify with real-world practice in budgeting and applied mathematics.
Students identify and define the logistic model for the world population data. For this data analysis lesson, students use the model illustrated to determine the population in a given year and compare it to the population shown in the table. Students also find the limiting behavior and explain what that means.
In this physical limits lesson, students test the limits of a rubber band. Students will use various masses to test how far a 1/4 in. rubber band will stretch. They will record and graph their data, then evaluate how the outcome would change with rubber bands of varying sizes. 
Students work toward understanding the limitations of renewable energy resources if there is no system available for storing the energy.
Middle schoolers design and construct a tower out of newspaper using a limited supply of newspaper, tape, and scissors. After completing their designs, they identify which designs can withstand the self-weight of the newspaper tower as well as a lateral wind load.
