### Newton's Method for Finding Roots

Newton's method is a process which can find roots of functions whose graphs cross or just kiss the x–axis. Although this method is a bit harder to apply than the Bisection Algorithm, it often finds roots that the Bisection Algorithm misses, and it usually
finds them faster.
