1.1 Limits

Author: Ian VanderSchee

Learners will evaluate limits using a number of strategies.

Learners will discuss end behavior of a function by examining limits as the independent variable approaches positive or negative infinity.

This video introduces the concept of limits as they will later pertain to differential calculus.

Limits as x approaches a constant are addressed in the first tutorial, and limits as x approaches infinity are addressed in the second tutorial.
