Twelfth graders problem solve limit/function value situations. They solve the problems using a graphing calculator, which allows them to see the function's graph, and infer the function value and limit from the graph.
Twelfth graders examine limits.  In this Calculus lesson students use the symbolic capacity of the TI-89 calculator to explore limits.  Students examine the tables and graphs and use the information to support their answers.
In this limits worksheet, students construct the limit described in three problems and the formal definition of a limit.   The solutions are not provided.

During this game, kids become migratory shorebirds and fly among wintering, nesting, and stopover habitats. If they do not arrive at a suitable habitat on time, they do not survive. Catastrophic events are periodically introduced that may also affect an individual's survival. After the simulation, shorebirds return to being students and analyze the survival rate, concluding a solid lesson on animal migration.
Future public health officials or agriculturists read an article and answer questions concerning the Japanese regulations for pesticide exposure. They compare the maximum residue limit for two, 4-D of Japan with other countries. This is an ideal lesson for developing scientific literacy as stated in the Common Core Standards, as well as a lesson to increase awareness of the use of harmful pesticides in food production. Note that although the link to the article does not work, it is easily found via an online search.
Learners explore how limited resources lead to competition. In this science lesson plan, students participate in a game in which they discover how limited resources causes plants to compete with one another in order to survive.
What was the political and social climate of the United States like when Ronald Reagan was elected president? Your class can find out through an informational reading passage. After reading, learners respond to seven provided questions based on the text.
In this stoichiometry activity, students write out reactions and balance the equations. Students determine the limiting reagents and calculate moles and grams. This activity has 4 problems to solve.
Eighth graders examine how the Nazis overworked the Jewish people and see how there are physical limits tot he body.  For this physical limits lesson students complete several activities.
Why do Saturn and the other gas giants have rings? Hank reveals the Roche limit as the cause, the distance within which gas planets would fail to hold together due to their own gravity. At this particular distance, orbiting materials also break down and disperse to form rings of matter. For a few minutes, you can let Hank do the teaching for you!
"Promises Denied," the second instructional activity in a unit that asks learners to consider the responsibilities individuals have to uphold human rights, looks at documents that illustrate the difficulty the US has had trying to live up to the ideals set forth in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.

Get two activities with one lesson. The first lesson, is appropriate for grades 6-12 and takes about 20 minutes. It introduces the concept of measures of central tendency, primarily the mean, and discusses its uses as well as its limitations. The second activity, is geared more for grades 9-12, and highlights the concept of variability and spread of data via standard deviation. Both activities are relatively simple, but the directed discussion questions add some pizzaz to its overall appeal. Included are suggestions for assessment and extensions.
As a stand-alone or as part of the intended unit, this is a valid investigation of what causes condensation to occur.  By limiting the amount of air around a cold cup of water and comparing it to one out in the open, they find that the moisture comes from the surroundings. Not only can this be used in a physical science class, it can be used when studying the water cycle in your earth science class. Make sure to consult the downloadable lab manual for scientific background and a unit overview. 
The rides at a theme park always have limits on weight or number of riders. This makes a natural example of the use of inequalities to solve real-world problems. Learners explore intuitive solutions using substitution to solve the inequality, and simple algebraic techniques for solving as well. This activity can be adjusted for different levels of student ability.
