Change of Sign Method for Finding Roots
This resource leads learners through the process of finding a root of a cubic equation using decimal search. It covers the thorny issue of using an interval in which the root lies to give an estimate for the root to a specified number of decimal places. Later examples include cases where roots may easily be missed. The extension task uses a discontinuous function that seems to give a spurious root.
