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.


  • Concept of Derivatives: Meaning of the term "Derivative" in Mathematics.
  • First Principle of Derivatives: The conventional way of computing derivatives.
  • Algebra of Derivatives: Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, and Division in Derivatives.
  • Derivatives of common functions: To set you free to calculate the derivative of combination of any functions.
