  • What is the definition of continuity?
  • When is a function continuous?
  • What is a discontinuity?
  • What is a jump discontinuity?
  • What is an infinite discontinuity?
  • What is a vertical asymptote?
  • What is a removable discontinuity?
  • When are polynomials continuous?
  • When are rational functions continuous?
  • When are sin and cos continuous?
  • What are the rules of limits of compositions?
  • What is one-sided continuity?
  • What is the Intermediate Value Theorem?

This video does a great job of explaining clearly and plainly what it means for a function and a graph to be continuous. Again, several examples are stepped through and explained. Discontinuities are explained and defined as well. Many important theorems and corollaries are explained. A very complete lesson.
