# Calculus 1 Limits

By Jason Gibson

Calculus 1 begins with the study of Limit Theory. It is usually the very first chapter in every Calculus book, and it frequently gives students problems because the concept of a limit and the definition of a limit as written in the books is usually difficult to understand.

This course focuses on the topic of limits in Calculus, and we assume that the student has never studied limits in the past. We introduce the concept of a limit with simple graphs and practical examples rather than a lengthy formal definition.

We then work numerous example problems to reinforce the concepts before moving on to the theorems and definitions that all calculus students must learn when studying limits.

We will cover:

• The definition of a limit
• Techniques to solve limits
• Limit laws
• Continuity
• And much more

As always, all concepts are taught by working problems so that the student will build skills.

The easiest way to learn this material is through step-by-step video lessons!
