n!, roots, limits, and products

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This paper is meant to offer Calculus teachers and students an occasion to ask some questions and look for connections between several ideas. When faced with the problem of finding an unusual limit, such as lim n→∞ , one might need to employ unusual techniques. While the recourse to these techniques might increase the chance of making mistakes, it increases the chance of making interesting small discoveries.
