This video provides a basic introduction into limits. It explains how to find the limit analytically by using simple substitution.
This video explains how to evaluate a limit numerically using a data table.
This video tutorial explains the process of evaluating limits analytically using direct substitution.
This video tutorial discusses how to find the limit of common trigonometric functions using the direct substitution technique.
This video explains how to evaluate limits using basic properties of limits such as multiplication, division, and exponents.
This video tutorial explains how to find the value of a limit by factoring. It explains how to factor trinomials with a leading coefficient of 1, factoring by grouping, removing the GCF - greatest common factor, difference of perfect squares, and sum of perfect cubes. The formulas and equations are provided. This video tutorial contains plenty of examples and practice problems.
This lesson explains how to evaluate a limit that contains square roots and radicals by multiplying the fraction by the conjugate of the numerator of the fraction.
This video explains how to evaluate the limit of a rational function in the form of a complex fraction by multiplying the numerator and denominator by the common denominator of the smaller fractions.
This video tutorial explains how to evaluate a function that is both rational and contains a radical or a square root within a fraction. You need to multiply the fraction by the conjugate of the numerator and by the common denominator of the two smaller fractions.
This video lesson explains how to find the limit of special trigonometric functions involving sine, cosine, and tangent.
This video explains how to evaluate limits by applying the squeeze theorem.
This lesson explains how to evaluate limits graphically.
This video explains how to find the limit of a piecewise function.
This video tutorial explains how to evaluate the limit of an absolute value function.
This video lesson discusses the greatest integer function and how to evaluate it using number lines and with limits.
This video tutorial discusses infinite limits that usually occurs with a rational function.
This video tutorial is continuation of the lecture entitled "infinite Limits Part 1".
This video lecture explains how to find the vertical asymptote of a rational function.
This video lesson explains how to evaluate limits at infinity numerically which is equivalent to finding the horizontal asymptote.
This video tutorial provides plenty of examples and practice problems of evaluating infinite limits at infinity.
This video provides an introduction into continuity. It discusses three types of discontinuities - the hole, the jump discontinuity, and the infinite discontinuity. The hole is a removable discontinuity. The infinite and jump discontinuity are nonremovable discontinuities.
This video explains how to quickly identify points of discontinuity by finding the x values that make a function undefined.
This video explains the 3 step continuity test which is useful for determining if a piecewise function is continuous or discontinuous at a certain point. (1) The f(x) must be defined. (2) The limit must exists. (3) The limit must equal the function at that point. Those are the 3 conditions that must be met to prove that a function is continuous at a point.
This video tutorial explains how to find the value of the constant that will make the piecewise function continuous at a point.
This video explains the intermediate value theorem and gives examples of how to apply it in a typical calculus problem.
This video quiz contains 10 multiple choice questions on some of the lessons covered in this course.
I started my education career by tutoring students right after high school and into college receiving a BA in Chemistry. The request that I usually receive were hard core topics like Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Precalculus, Calculus, General Chemistry, Physics, and Organic Chemistry.
Over time, I learned which teaching methods are most effective for helping students to not only understand the material but to retain it and to apply it during an exam to boost their score. Now, I focus more on creating videos and online courses that help not just students in my locality but students worldwide who might be struggling with this course.
