## An applet for teaching the limit of a sequence

I’m currently teaching real analysis. Right now we’re discussing limits of sequences. The definition is:

The *limit* of a sequence is (or *converges* to ) if, given any , there exists a natural number such that for all .

I used GeoGebra to create the following java applet, which illustrates the definition of a limit. (Clicking on the previous link or the picture below will open the applet in a new window.)

That is a fantastic GeoGebra applet! I’m sure they would love to see it on the GeoGebra wiki.

Thanks! I didn’t even know about the GeoGebra wiki.
