GeoGebra tools for numerical mathematics

Bisection method example

This drawing demonstrates the bisection method. The point A is the root of the function. Move points B and C to set the starting interval. The interval which contains the root remains unmarked, while the other intervals are marked with a red line. You can further divide the intervals by adding more iterative steps of the bisection method.

To add more iterative steps: select the Bisection tool, then click on the function. Finally, click on two existing adjacent points on x-axis.
