Synopsis

We have all been taught that l'Hôpital created "l'Hôpital's Rule"... but is that the truth?

About

For our final project in AP Calculus AB, Jacob Feuerstein, Joel Shooter, and I were assigned to create a presentation on l'Hôpital's Rule (a method used in calculus to solve pesky limits). The three of us went beyond didactic presentations — we made a short film. At the time, I just learned about Johann Bernoulli and his involvement with the creation of this now-famous rule. This story just needed to be shared.
