Application of Limits

Solving real-world problems by applying average rate of change and instantaneous rate of change.

Mapped to AP College Board # CHA-1.A.2, CHA-1.A.3

Because an average rate of change divides the change in one variable by the change in another, the average rate of change is undefined at a point where the change in the independent variable would be zero. The limit concept allows us to define instantaneous rate of change in terms of average rates of change.
