# Introduction to Newton's Method

The following activity will introduce you to Newton's Method, showing you an example on a specific function, and letting you formulate the algorithm to perform Newton's Method.

Spend a minute just playing with the app, what everything does and how it works.In this example, our initial guess at the root of the function is for the function .
Hit the reset button, and push the next button until the point appears. Then, continue until appears, and repeat a few times.
, explain how the next point is found in words. You can write it as a list of steps.
, what will the recursive formula for be?

**Question 1:**Given one of the points**Question 2:**Next, we want to write this algorithm as an equation. Using mathematical notation, if we know the value of## New Resources
