# 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.

# 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.
