Calculus AB/BC - Connecting Differentiability and Continuity

Despite what you thought, you can differentiate between continuity and differentiability. Using a short lesson, pupils learn how differentiability and continuity relate to each other. It provides three descriptions of when a function is not differentiable. Learners practice finding where functions are not continuous and also where they are but not differentiable.
