Course: Calculus I
Topic: Limits and Continuity
Subtopic: Limits Numerically


In this lesson we evaluate limits numerically, i.e. via tables of data representing the function's inputs and outputs. We analyze the data looking for patterns that enable us to make conclusions about limits of the function as x approaches specific input values. Several interesting examples of varying difficulty will be posted for discussion in class. Check them out!


By the end of this topic you should know and be prepared to be tested on:


Terms you should be able to define: table of data, numerical analysis
