Section 1 - LIMITS

• Concept of LimitsFor making you familiar with the notion of the Limit.
• Existence of LimitsIntroduction to the Left-Hand Limit and the Right-Hand Limit.
• Algebra of LimitsAddition, Subtraction, Multiplication, and Division in Limits.
• L’Hospital Rule: A handy tool to circumvent the common indeterminate forms when computing limits.
• The Sandwich TheoremTo evaluate limits of functions that can't be computed at a given point.
• Limits of Trigonometric FunctionsTo cover the important limit identities of trigonometric functions.
• Limits at Infinity: To evaluate limits at points tending to positive and negative infinity.

Section 2 - DERIVATIVES

• Concept of Derivatives: Meaning of the term "Derivative" in Mathematics.
• First Principle of Derivatives: The conventional way of computing derivatives.
