This video tutorial explains the process of evaluating limits analytically using direct substitution.

Evaluating Limits Analytically Using Direct Substitution
02:26

This video tutorial discusses how to find the limit of common trigonometric functions using the direct substitution technique.

Finding The Limit of Trigonometric Functions
02:51

This video explains how to evaluate limits using basic properties of limits such as multiplication, division, and exponents.

Properties of Limits
04:51

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.

Evaluating Limits By Factoring
11:34

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.

Preview 04:56

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.

Preview 04:48

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.

Limits of Rational Functions and Square Roots
11:41

This video lesson explains how to find the limit of special trigonometric functions involving sine, cosine, and tangent.

Preview 15:22

This video explains how to evaluate limits by applying the squeeze theorem.

This video lecture explains how to find the vertical asymptote of a rational function.

Vertical Asymptotes
04:37

This video lesson explains how to evaluate limits at infinity numerically which is equivalent to finding the horizontal asymptote.

Limits at Infinity and Horizontal Asymptotes
19:23

This video tutorial provides plenty of examples and practice problems of evaluating infinite limits at infinity.

Infinite Limits at Infinity
15:14

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.

Introduction to Continuity
01:24

This video explains how to quickly identify points of discontinuity by finding the x values that make a function undefined.

Identifying Points of Discontinuity
05:42

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.

3 Step Continuity Test
09:48

This video tutorial explains how to find the value of the constant that will make the piecewise function continuous at a point.

Making a Piecewise Function Continuous

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.
