    The extreme value theorem is reviewed to begin this lesson. You will then learn how to find the minimum and maximum values of a function on a closed, bounded interval. Several useful theorems and results are discussed that deal with extreme values at endpoints. There are some good example problems as well.

    Very detailed explanations and he speaks slowly and clearly enough for students to follow. Also, there are pictures provided for those students who are visual.
