dc.description.abstractNewton's Method is used to find roots of differentiable functions, and is easily adapted to find critical points of twice-differentiable functions. Students often rely on the numerical results of Newton's Method without a complete analysis of the function. We offer a function that when used in a lab setting using technology allows the students to gain further insights into the use of Newton's Method.en_US
