Lesson Summary:

This lesson teaches how to find the different types of asymptotes in a function, including vertical, horizontal, and slant. The instructor shows step-by-step how to determine each asymptote by finding the degree of the leading term and using long division to find the slant asymptote. This lesson is ideal for students who want to learn how to determine different types of asymptotes in a function.

Lesson Description:

Finding the slant asymptote of a function

I show how to solve math problems online during live instruction in class. This is my way of providing free tutoring for the students in my class and for students anywhere in the world. Every video is a short clip that shows exactly how to solve math problems step by step. The problems are done in real time and in front of a regular classroom. These videos are intended to help you learn how to solve math problems, review how to solve a math problems, study for a test, or finish your homework. I post all of my videos on YouTube, but if you are looking for other ways to interact with me and my videos you can follow me on the following pages through My Blog, Twitter, or Facebook.
