This is the first in a series of courses that cover the equivalent of a one-year college course in calculus. These courses are

- MATH119 - Functions, Limits, and Continuity (This course)
- MATH120 - Differential Calculus for Measurement
- MATH121 - Sequences, Limits, and Series
- MATH122 - Integral Calculus for Measurement
- MATH123 - Series, Approximation, and Sensitivity

This course introduces the concepts of function, limits, and continuity. These concepts, and the theorems that are presented on these concepts, are the building blocks for defining the concepts in differential and integral calculus of one variable.

This course has three major sections, Functions, Limits, and Continuity. The first section introduces some notation that will be used in this series of courses, but other than that should be a review of concepts that should have been learned in Algebra. The concept of limit is the fundamental building block that calculus is built upon, which is the subject of the next section. The final section covers the topic of continuity.

The course outline is as follows:

- Introduction
- Functions
- Definition
- Notation
