LOL at anyone saying this is hard, or that Switkes is a bad teacher. She explains 10 times better than my Calculus teacher, and explains in more detail than he does; and I have had over sixty people tell me my teacher is great.
She gives pleanty of examples, and pleanty of detail...Actually, WAY more detail than needed. Look to the last lesson (Limit Investigations) where she shows compute derivatives, something you may not know. This = More than enough information.

i feel that for example number one we ignored the fact that sqrt of 9 can also be -3 with would still make this undefined. dose anyone know why we would ignore that?

Algebraic Evaluation of Limits

  • Remember that we are looking at what happens as approaches (not what happens at ).
  • For limits as , we are looking at what happens as x increases or decreases without bound.
  • Sometimes an algebraic rearrangement will help you to evaluate a limit.
  • For limits of rational functions as , starting by dividing the numerator and denominator by the highest power of x appearing in the denominator.
