Instructional Ideas

  • Use the slideshow to introduce continuity
Classroom Considerations

  • The slideshow is a Microsoft PowerPoint presentation, so be sure your computer can open a .pptx extension
  • The slideshow only covers continuity at a point, not over an interval
Pros

  • Red is used to indicate parts of the definition of continuity that are not satisfied by a function allowing pupils to easily determine whether a function is continuous
  • Each part of the definition of continuity appears separately, allowing for discussion before the solutions appear
Cons

  • None
