2.2. Rough definitions of limits
Whether tangent line problems or instantaneous
velocity problems, we are dealing with functions.
So it is necessary to give the definition of a limit
for general functions.
Topics:
I. Two-sided limits
II. One-sided limits
2.8. Derivative functions
Definition :
If we replace a by x in the definition of
derivative in the last section, we obtain
f ( x h) f ( x )
f ( x) lim
h 0
h
where x is a variable, we call this the
derivative function of f , denoted by f .

2.7. Derivatives
From section 1, we see that either tangent
problem or velocity problem, we consider :
f ( x) f (a )
lim

x a
x a
This special type of limit plays a very important
role in mathematics and applications.

Chapter 2. Limits and Derivatives
Introduction
The invention of the calculus was accomplished by
the mathematician and physicist Newton (16421727) and the mathematician, logician, and
philosopher Leibniz (1646-1716).
The entire calculus is based on the
1.4 Exponential Functions
An exponentia l function is a function of
the form f ( x) a x where a 0.
The a is called the base and x the exponent.
D f R and R f (0, ) if a 1.
f is called exponential function because
the variable x is the exponent.

Differentiation Rules and formulas
We see from the last chapter, finding a
derivative function using the definition
involves a long computation. Sometimes,
the process is very long and painful.

1.5 Inverse and log functions
In this section, we look at logarithmic
functions, which are another very important
type of functions. We define logarithmic
functions as inverse of exponential functions.
Topics:
A. Inverse functions
B. Logarithmic functions
Chapter 1: Functions
Our world is full of changing quantities. Almost all
quantities are functions of time. For instance, the motion
of planets, sounds, etc.
Functions are fundamental objects in calculus.
They are used to describe relationship between

2.5. Continuity
In this section, we use limits to
