I greet you this day,

__First:__ read the notes. __Second:__ view the videos. __Third:__ solve the questions/solved examples.
__Fourth:__ check your solutions with my **thoroughly-explained** solutions. __Fifth:__ check your answers with the calculators as applicable.

The Wolfram Alpha widgets (many thanks to the developers) were used for some calculators.

Comments, ideas, areas of improvement, questions, and constructive criticisms are welcome. You may contact me.

If you are my student, please do not contact me here. Contact me via the school's system.

Thank you for visiting!!!

Students will:

(1.) Discuss the concept of the limit of a function.

(2.) Discuss the concept of the continuity of a function over a domain.

(3.) Discuss the concept of the discontinuity of a function over a domain.

(4.) Determine the limit of a function numerically.

(5.) Determine the limit of a function algebraically.

(6.) Determine the limit of a function graphically.

(7.) Determine the values of the independent variable for which the dependent variable is continuous.

(8.) Determine the values of the independent variable for which the dependent variable is discontinuous.

(9.) Solve applied problems involving the limit of a function.

(10.) Solve applied problems involving the continuity of a function.

(1.) Use of prior knowledge

(2.) Critical Thinking

(3.) Interdisciplinary connections/applications

(4.) Technology

(5.) Active participation through direct questioning

(6.) Research

*Check for prior knowledge. Ask students about these terms.*

Bring it to __English__: limit, limited, limiting, restriction, continuous, discontinuous,

Bring it to __Math__:

I call it **Special Limits** because of its' importance in the derivatives of certain functions
in Calculus.

They include:

$
(1.)\:\: \displaystyle{\lim_{\theta \to 0}} \dfrac{\sin\theta}{\theta} \\[5ex]
\theta \:\:is\:\:in\:\:Radians \\[3ex]
$
We shall determine this limit both numerically and algebraically

**Determining** $\boldsymbol{\displaystyle{\lim_{\theta \to 0}} \dfrac{\sin\theta}{\theta}}$ **Numerically**

$\theta$(RAD) | $-0.1$ | $-0.01$ | $-0.001$ | $-0.0001$ | $-0.00001$ | $0$ | $0.00001$ | $0.0001$ | $0.001$ | $0.01$ | $0.1$ |

$\sin\theta$ | $-0.09983$ | $-0.00999983$ | $-0.00099999983$ | $-0.00009999999983$ | $-0.00001$ | $0.00001$ | $0.00009999999983$ | $0.00099999983$ | $0.00999983$ | $0.09983$ | |

$\dfrac{\sin\theta}{\theta}$ | $0.09983$ | $0.999983$ | $0.99999983$ | $0.9999999983$ | $1$ | $\boldsymbol{1}$ | $1$ | $0.9999999983$ | $0.99999983$ | $0.999983$ | $0.09983$ |
