Continuity and the Intermediate Value Theorem Modules

Overview

After completing this section, students should be able to do the following.

  • Identify where a function is, and is not, continuous.
  • Understand the connection between continuity of a function and the value of a limit.
  • Make a piecewise function continuous.
  • State the Intermediate Value Theorem including hypotheses.
  • Determine if the Intermediate Value Theorem applies.
  • Sketch pictures indicating why the Intermediate Value Theorem is true, and why all hypotheses are necessary.
  • Explain why certain points exist using the Intermediate Value Theorem.

Roxy and Yuri like food

Ximera Module

Two young mathematicians discuss the eating habits of their cats.

Continuity of piecewise functions

Ximera Module

Here we use limits to check whether piecewise functions are continuous.

The Intermediate Value Theorum

Ximera Module

Here we see a consequence of a function being continuous.
