Sal explores more complex limit problems including showing how to take the limit of an expression with a square root by using the conjugate and how to simplify trigonometric functions that are part of limit problems. Note: A mistake is made on the last step of first problem where multiplication should have been used instead of addition, resulting in the correct answer of 3/16.
By using the Epsilon Delta definition of limits, Sal shows listeners how to prove an example limit problem. Specifically, given any epsilon distance away from L, the limit of f(x), he finds a delta that is within delta of the x value where then f(x) is within epsilon of the limit L.
In the first example, instead of actually using the quotient rule, Sal rewrites the denominator as a negative exponent and uses the product rule. In subsequent examples, Sal shows, but does not prove, the derivative of several interesting functions including ex, ln x, sin x, cos x, and tan x.
Sal spends most this video explaining what the Mean Value Theorem says in a very intuitive way. He follows this with a concrete example of finding the value of a function on a closed interval where the slope is the same as the average slope of the function over that interval. Here, Sal also uses and informally defines the terms: continuous function, differential, and closed and open interval.
Learners solve several differential equations. In this calculus instructional activity, students test their modulus calculation by testing different weights or beam lengths. They share their findings in class.
