Man, Yiu-Kwong; Poon, Kin-Keung – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2014
In this paper, we report a pilot study on engaging a group of undergraduate students to explore the limits of sin(x)/x and tan(x)/x as x approaches to 0, with the use of non-graphic scientific calculators. By comparing the results in the pretest and the post-test, we found that the students had improvements in the tested items, which involved the…
