Using a Graph to Define Limits

1. 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.

Understanding Limits: Using Notation

2. 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.

One-Sided Limits and Continuity

3. 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.

How to Determine the Limits of Functions

4. 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

5. 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.

Squeeze Theorem: Definition and Examples

6. Squeeze Theorem: Definition and Examples

In the Kingdom of Rimonn there are three rivers. In this lesson, learn how these waterways demonstrate the power of the squeeze theorem for finding the limits of functions.

Graphs and Limits: Defining Asymptotes and Infinity

7. Graphs and Limits: Defining Asymptotes and Infinity

Infinity is a hard concept to understand and the word asymptote is pretty intimidating. But this fun lesson will make both seem like a walk in the park as it defines both and shows their relationship using a graph.

Finding Constant and Average Rates

8. Finding Constant and Average Rates

Watch this video lesson to learn the differences between constant and average rates. You will learn the steps you need to take to find them and get two great visuals you can keep in mind to help you solve these rate problems.

Slopes and Rate of Change

9. Slopes and Rate of Change

If you throw a ball straight up, there will be a point when it stops moving for an instant before coming back down. Consider this as we study the rate of change of human cannonballs in this lesson.
