# Ch 7: Limits

Watch online video lessons on limits and learn about asymptotes, infinity, one-sided limits, continuity and more. Each lesson is accompanied by a short multiple-choice quiz you can use to check your understanding of these math topics.

## Limits

Join us on a cross-country road trip in this video lesson series on limits. As our car travels at various speeds over time, we'll learn how to describe, understand and determine the limits of functions.

In a function, limits are used to described what happens as a variable approaches a certain number. For instance, if we hop on the interstate and start cruising along at highway speed, after we drive for 10 minutes, we could say that the limit of our function as we approach 10 minutes is 60 miles per hour. As we speed up or slow down, the limits as we approach different times will either increase or decrease. Let's hope we don't get pulled over for speeding!

Building on your understanding of limits and how they apply to the real world, you'll learn how to graph limits using proper notation. You'll learn how to 'divide and conquer' with the properties of limits, which include addition, subtraction, multiplication and division properties.

Finally, you'll understand more complex aspects of limits, such as what happens in discontinuous functions (one-sided limits), how functions relate to each other through the Squeeze Theorem and how to graph limits for asymptotes and infinity. To illustrate these concepts, we'll visit the rivers of the fictional Kingdom of Rimonn and encounter an earthquake on the way to grandma's house. So, fasten your seat belts, and let's explore the limits of functions!
