Applying Function Operations Practice Problems

1. Applying Function Operations Practice Problems

In this lesson, learn how to apply all the different properties of functions to solve complex problems. From function operations and composition to domain and range, get your practice here!

How to Determine the Limits of Functions

2. How to Determine the Limits of Functions

You know the definition of a limit. You know the properties of limits. You can connect limits and continuity. Now use this knowledge to calculate the limits of complex functions in this lesson.

Understanding the Properties of Limits

3. Understanding the Properties of Limits

Graphically we can see limits, but how do we actually calculate them? Three words: Divide and Conquer. In this lesson, explore some of the properties that we can use to find limits.

Continuous Functions: Properties & Definition

4. Continuous Functions: Properties & Definition

In this lesson, you will learn what a continuous function is and how to identify one by tracing your finger or pencil on a graph or by using three properties of continuous functions.

Continuity in a Function

5. Continuity in a Function

Travel to space and explore the difference between continuous and discontinuous functions in this lesson. Learn how determining continuity is as easy as tracing a line.

Intermediate Value Theorem: Examples and Applications

6. Intermediate Value Theorem: Examples and Applications

Many problems in math don't require an exact solution. Some problems exist simply to find out if any solution exists. In this lesson, we'll learn how to use the intermediate value theorem to answer an age-old question.
