Continuous Functions have:
Discontinuous Functions are:
There are 3 types of Discontinuous Functions:
- Infinite Discontinuity (Asymptotes)
- Jump Discontinuity (Line Disconnects and then Reconnects at a different y value)
- Removable Discontinuity (Open Circle to Represent a whole in the Graph)
- How a function behaves at either end of the graph
- What happens to the value of f(x) as x increases or decreases without bound
Where is the graph going as it approaches something?
- We can't always get an exact answer but we can always tell where it is going?

- Limits can be mind blowing sometimes. With the activity above students will walk half way to a wall repeatedly until they reach the wall. The problem is they should never reach the wall. Welcome to Limits!
