Problem 966. Bisection method of finding a root.

Test the bisection algorithm described in Chapter 5 of Steven C. Chapra's textbook, Applied Numerical Methods with MATLAB for Engineers and Scientists. The first test case uses the following problem on the interval [1 3].


The first test will be a single iteration of bisection. Other tests for varying termination criteria, intervals, and other functions will be added later.
