In this lesson on Limits and Graphs, you will learn how to intuitively describe the behavior of a function near a certain point, using left and right-sided limits. You will also learn about infinite one-sided limits and vertical asymptotes. The lesson provides examples and exercises to help you understand how to determine the value of a function at a certain point, the limits on both sides of that point, and how to sketch a graph of a function based on its conditions. Overall, this lesson provides a solid foundation for understanding the concept of limits and their relationships with graphs.
The concept of limit from an intuitive, graphical point of view. Left and right-sided limits. Infinite one-sided limits and vertical asymptotes.
