    L'H\^{o Modules

    Overview

    After completing this section, students should be able to do the following.

    • Recall how to find limits for forms that are determinate.
    • Define an indeterminate form.
    • Determine if a form is indeterminate.
    • Convert some indeterminate forms to the form zero over zero or infinity over infinity.
    • Determine when can l’Hôpital’s Rule be used.
    • Use l’Hôpital’s Rule to find limits.

    A limitless dialouge

    Ximera Module

    Two young mathematicians consider a way to compute limits using derivatives.

    L'H\^{o

    Ximera Module

    We use derivatives to give us a ``short-cut'' for computing limits.
