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.
In this population worksheet, students will compare two population growth graphs and complete four short answer questions. Then students will investigate the factors that influence population growth in 8 fill in the blank statements and 4 multiple choice questions. Finally, students will complete 5 short answer questions on how organism interactions limit population size.
Learners determine why cell growth is limited and requires cell division. They explore the different phases of mitosis, the oncogenes that cause cancer, and possible treatments.
High schoolers determine differences between Keynes' and Hayek's economic philosophies. They describe economic freedom according to Hayek, as current economists describe it, then explain how Keynes' economic policies could limit economic freedom .
Young scholars investigate the expectations and limitations placed on Victorian women and evaluate Charlotte Bronte's position and desire for literary achievement in using the male pseudonym, Currer Bell.
Learners build their own newspaper skyscrapers with limited materials and time. They identify several different structural engineering principles relating to skyscrapers. They explain how their towers resisted the wind load.
Students research and prepare a persuasive paper on how federal courts should be constructed in a new country. In this Federal Court System instructional activity, students decide whether they should model a new country's federal courts after the US court system or create a new type of federal court system. Students also demonstrate how power of the courts in this new country will be limited.
Calculus students find the limit of piecewise functions at a value. They find the limit of piecewise functions as x approaches a given value. They find the limit of linear, quadratic, exponential, and trigonometric piecewise functions.
Sixth graders experience building a product or solving a problem with a single constraint that limits the choices they have in finding that solution. Student teams complete three different projects, each with a different constraint to challenge their creativity and improvisation.
Learners explore Bears and what they do to prepare for winter. They also examine the bears need for food and the factors that limit their food supply.
Students explore population growth.  In this algebra lesson plan, students model population growth and compare ideal population growth with a population whose growth is limited.  Students use technology (TI-73) to determine an exponential and logistic regression equation. 
Identify the limits. Using geometry, learners will define the limit and fundamental theorem of calculus. They will also relate limit and derivatives to the real world.
Tenth graders are introduced to the vocabulary that is acceptable and unacceptable in writing a haiku. Individually, they are given a set of instructions in which to write their haiku and discuss how these limitations have affected their creativity. To end the instructional activity, they read and discuss a haiku based on a historical event.
In this calculus worksheet, students observe graphs and identify the limits of the functions listed in the graph. They determine the definite integrals and derivatives. Students use the trapezoid rule to estimate distance. This five-page worksheet contains 14 problems.
Students use scientific methods to investigate the effects of overpopulation of seed plants on growth in a limited living space. Students relate seed plant population findings to that of other organisms.
Students examine presidential powers. In this checks and balances instructional activity, students identify the constitutional and informal restraints of the president and consider the reasons for the limitations.
Students play a game called 'Limit 2' and analyse their moves in order to establish a winning strategy. The subtraction game in this activity is one of a number of games in a unit called 'Analysing games' in the above publication.
With the assistance of their Ti-84/Ti-83 Plus calculators, young scholars develop a foundation for the limiting process as well as estimate limits from graphs and tables of values. They view how a function behaves as the input approaches a particular value.
Young mathematicians solve problems involving limits in this calculus instructional activity. They identify the value of x as the limit approaches positive and negative infinity. Learners study the magnitude as x increases in value.
