Limits in Elementary Geometry

Alvin Moon led the Math Circle through some lovely explorations of one of the central concepts of advanced mathematics: limits! We can develop intuition about this deep idea with a few geometric thought experiments. This topic was designed to be accessible to young students but still new and beautiful to more advanced Math Circlers.
