Limit Examples w/ brain malfunction on first prob (part 4)
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.

Biological Models with Differential Equations
Explore differential equations by using models representing growth and decline. Using calculus, learners will investigate exponential and logistic growth in the context of several models representing the growth or decline of a population. Most of the models have a closed-form solutions.

Proof: lim (sin x)/x
By looking the expression (sin x)/x that is not defined at the limit value of 0, Sal uses the squeeze theorem to show that the function can by bound between two other functions that are defined at limit value so the limit can indeed be found.

Converge or Diverge?
Students prepare for the calculus concepts of limits by examining sequences that converge and diverge. By using an Excel program that generates sequences, students manipulate the starting number, multiplier and add-on values, and examine both the numerical and graphical representations of the sequence.
