## Description

Continuity and limit for functions of one real variable. Basic properties of continuous functions. Uniform continuity.

In this study-module, students practice reading and writing mathematics. They learn the basics of logic and practice proving mathematical statements.

## Learning outcomes

- knows the characterization of continuity in terms of limits of sequences
- is familiar with the most important consequences of continuity
- knows the definition of limit of a function
- understands the connection between continuity and limit, and knows how they differ
- is able to formulate and prove mathematical claims
- has improved her/his ability to read and write mathematics
