Unit 1 - Limits

 IntroThe limit of a function is the main concept that distinguishes calculus from algebra and geometry (and other math). The concept of a limit is fundamental to the study of calculus. Thus, it is beyond important to acquire a working understanding of limits before moving on to other topics in calculus such as derivatives and integrals.In order to discover and create important ideas, definitions, formulas, and theorems in calculus, a firm understanding of limits is needed. Furthermore, limits can be used to understand the behavior of functions including concepts such as asymptotes (vertical and horizontal) and continuity.Key TermsUnit 1 Inquiry ActivityFinding Limits1.A.
