NMTA Essential Academic Skills Math: Continuity- Chapter Summary

As you study for calculus-related math questions on the NMTA Essential Academic Skills test, you can use this chapter as one of your major resources to help refresh your memory about the topic of continuity. Our instructors have separated this topic into several smaller lessons, allowing you to recall the different aspects of continuity in greater detail, including how to solve equations and apply related theorems. By making your way through this chapter, you will sharpen your knowledge base and be prepared to do the following:

  • Describe how continuity works in a function
  • Identify discontinuities in graphs and functions
  • Analyze functions with regions of continuity
  • Check out the Intermediate Value Theorem

You can evaluate your familiarity with continuity by using our lesson quizzes. These quizzes are connected to every lesson we offer, and they consist of about five selected-response style questions. For math-related topics, you may be asked questions about key terms, mathematical principles, true or false statements, or you may have to apply what you know to solve sample problems. Since the lesson quizzes pertain to only the information in the attached lesson, these quizzes provide a more focused assessment strategy. In addition, if you miss any questions, you will know exactly where to go in the lesson to find the right answers.
