Estimating limits from graphs

In this tutorial, we will build our ability to visualize limits by estimating them based on graphs of functions. We will look at both one-sided and two-sided limits.

One-sided limits from graphs

VIDEO 9:11 minutes
Here we use graphs to find the limit of a function as you approach a point from just one side.

One-sided limits from graphs

PRACTICE PROBLEMS
Practice finding limits by looking at graphs.

Two-sided limit at a point of discontinuity

VIDEO 6:20 minutes
The limit does not always exist. Here we see an example of when this happens.

Two-sided limits from graphs

VIDEO 2:46 minutes
Another example of a two sided limit at a discontinuous point.

Determining which limit statements are true

VIDEO 5:16 minutes
Here we practice our understanding of limits by checking a few statements about limits for a given graph.

Two-sided limits from graphs

PRACTICE PROBLEMS
Practice finding two sided limits by looking at graphs.
