## Keep Learning

Precalculus teaches students to work with the mathematical functions that must be understood to learn calculus. Because limits are an essential foundation of calculus, a precalculus course that includes the study of limits better prepares a student than a course that omits this topic.

The limit of a function at a point is the value that the output of the function comes close to as the input of the function approaches that point. A rigorous definition of a limit is known as an epsilon-delta definition.
