  • Use of Archimedes' Process for Approximating Circle Area as an Introduction to Limits

    S. Özgün-Koca
    An introductory activity for the limit concept with a geometrical and historical foundation. A connection among Geometry, Measurement and Calculus is highlighted with the help of technology.
