# Ch 25: NES Math: Limits

### About This Chapter

## NES Math: Limits - Chapter Summary

Use this chapter's lessons to review your knowledge of limits and how to determine and define them. Our videos and quizzes can help you get ready for NES Math exam questions on topics such as:

- When and how to use limit notation
- Methods of determining the limits of functions
- How to use a graph to define limits
- Using a graph to find the value of a one-sided limit
- Continuity

Our video lessons are about five to ten minutes each and are available via computer, smartphone or tablet. Each is accompanied by a written transcript that highlights important concepts and terms. You can monitor your progress through the personalized Dashboard, and ask questions of the instructors through the ask-an-expert message board.

### NES Math: Limits Chapter Objectives

Several states use the NES Mathematics exam as one of the criteria for granting certification to teach the subject. The exam's questions are sectioned into five content domains, and the material from this chapter is covered in the Trigonometry and Calculus domain. This part of the exam accounts for 19% of the total score.

All questions on the exam are multiple choice, like the questions on our lesson quizzes and chapter exam. Our tests let you practice answering questions in the format you'll find on exam day and also allow you to assess your knowledge. If you answer a question incorrectly, the answer key provides a link back to that part of the video so you can review the material.

### 1. Understanding Limits: Using Notation

Join me on a road trip as we define the mathematical notation of limits. As time goes by and I traverse hills and highways, the limit of my speed changes. Learn how to write these limits in this lesson.

### 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.

### 3. Using a Graph to Define Limits

My mom always said I tested the limits of her patience. Use graphs to learn about limits in math. You won't get grounded as we approach limits in this lesson.

### 4. One-Sided Limits and Continuity

Over the river and through the woods is only fun on a continuous path. What happens when the path has a discontinuity? In this lesson, learn about the relationship between continuity and limits as we walk up and down this wildlife path.
