Calculus is about applying the idea of limits to functions in various ways. For example, the limit of the slope of a curve as the length of the curve approaches zero, or the limit of the area of rectangle as its length goes to zero. Limits are also used in the study of infinite series as in the limit of a function of x as x approaches infinity.
