Here's what you'll find in this section:

The Limit, as x approaches c, of a function f(x), is said to be equal to L if the value of f(x) gets "closer and closer" to L as x gets "closer and closer" to c.  This page presents a mathematically rigorous explanation of this, and also introduces some special uses of limits.

The Derivative is a special limit -- the derivative of f(x) with respect to x (written d/dx f(x)) is

The Integral is another special limit, and you can also think of it as an "anti-derivative" plus a constant.  This page introduces these concepts.
