This free printable limits calculus poster reminds calculus students of an important concept: limtis are about the journey not the destination.

I created a new poster this year for my AP Calculus AB class for our first unit of the year: Limits and Continuity.

## Inspiration for the Poster

I was watching on of Tony Record’s AP Calculus videos, and he made a statement about how limits are more about the journey than the destination. I like this statement because too often my students get hung up on the fact that the function is undefined at a certain point so they believe that the limit cannot exist.

I immediately made myself a note to make a poster for my classroom with this saying on it. I did find an etsy store (Inspired by Math) that has a poster already created with the statement “Limits are about the journey not the destination.” While their design is absolutely gorgeous, I decided to go with a play on a speed limit sign when making a poster for my own classroom.

## Poster Size Options

Here’s my American speed limit inspired sign which reads “Limits are about the journey not the destination.” I created the poster in Canva, and I have created it in two different sizes.

I wanted it to be a bit bigger than a letter-sized sheet of paper, so I printed the 11 x 17 version for my classroom. Note: the resulting poster will need to be trimmed. The speed limit sign itself is not 11 x 17 because I wanted to keep the ratio/look of a typical sign you would see along a highway.

After printing it on 11 x 17 cardstock, I laminated the poster and then trimmed around the edges of the sign before hanging it up in my high school math classroom next to my concavity posters.
