Finite Limits at a Finite Point
Course Topic(s): One-Variable Calculus | Continuity and Limits
In the epsilon-delta definition of a finite limit, the student gets to select a limit point and epsilon and then adjust left and right deltas to satisfy the definition. There is only one function and if you do not ask the computer to calculate the correct deltas then there is no indication of when you get the deltas correct. Also there is nothing to prevent the two deltas from being on the same side of the limit point.
