Import necessary libraries

Define complex function we which to find the root of

$f(x) = x^3 + 4x^2 - 10$

Pseudocode for bisection algorithm

INPUT: x_left, x_right, tolerance, max_iterations

set i == 0:

while i < max_iterations:

1) Defining the left and right starting limits

2) Define the smooth, continuous function

3) Code the main bisection algorithm

4) Call the main function

5) Visualizations

First show the overall function behavior
