Concepts such as domain, range, evaluation, composition, and so on should be well understood. Also, students should be familiar with inverses of one-to-one functions. Various special functions, such as the trigonometric functions $\sin$, $\cos$, $\tan$, $\cot$, $\sec$, $\csc$, the exponential $\exp$, and logarithm $\log$ also need to be known. \subsection{Limits} The limit is necessary to define continuity, differentiation, and integration. Indeed, Calculus would not be possible without the study of limits. We have the definition of a limit. \begin{definition} We say that $\lim_{x\to a}=L$ if given any $\epsilon > 0$, there is a $\delta >0$ such that $|f(x)-L|<\epsilon$ whenever $0 < |x-a| <\delta$. \end{definition} \subsection{Continuity} A continuous function is one whose graph has no ``breaks" or ``jumps". Also, a continuous function is one in which small changes in the independent variable
