In this final chapter, we’ll learn to solve calculus problems. We’ll first learn about mathematical functions, followed by a quick overview of the common mathematical functions available in Python’s standard library and SymPy. Then, we’ll learn how we can find the limits of functions and calculate derivatives and integrals— that is, the kinds of things you’d be doing in any calculus class. Let’s get started!

Let’s start out with some basic definitions. A function is a *mapping* between an input set and an output set. The special condition of a function is that an element of the input set is related ...
