Investigating the Mathematical Process with Nonlinear Asymptotes

Michael Bossé, Karen DeUrquidi, David Edwards, N. Nandakumar 

April 2008, Volume 101, Issue 8, Page 574

Abstract:
Under the backdrop of the investigation of rational functions and their respective curved asymptotes, the reader is invited to experience the mathematical process alongside the authors and observe the application of the NCTM Process Standards and the use of multiple representations in the investigation and solution of a problem. Inquiry into the behavior of functions and relation to asymptotes is processed through the use of Geometers Sketchpad and handheld graphing utilities.
