Thought-Process to Discover Knowledge

Welcome to nubtrek.

Books and other education websites provide "matter-of-fact" knowledge. Instead, nubtrek provides a thought-process to discover knowledge.

In each of the topic, the outline of the thought-process, for that topic, is provided for learners and educators.

Read in the blogs more about the unique learning experience at nubtrek.

User Guide

Welcome to nubtrek.

The content is presented in small-focused learning units to enable you to
think,
figure-out, &
learn.

Just keep tapping (or clicking) on the content to continue in the trail and learn.

User Guide

To make best use of nubtrek, understand what is available.

nubtrek is designed to explain mathematics and science for young readers. Every topic consists of four sections.

nub,

trek,

jogger,

exercise.

User Guide

nub is the simple explanation of the concept.

This captures the small-core of concept in simple-plain English. The objective is to make the learner to think about.

User Guide

trek is the step by step exploration of the concept.

Trekking is bit hard, requiring one to sweat and exert. The benefits of taking the steps are awesome. In the trek, concepts are explained with exploratory questions and your thinking process is honed step by step.

User Guide

jogger provides the complete mathematical definition of the concepts.

This captures the essence of learning and helps one to review at a later point. The reference is available in pdf document too. This is designed to be viewed in a smart-phone screen.

User Guide

exercise provides practice problems to become fluent in the concepts.

This part does not have much content as of now. Over time, when resources are available, this section will have curated and exam-prep focused questions to test your knowledge.

Examining Function at an input Value

»  A function f(x) at x=a is

→  continuous: if f(a) = LHL = RHL

→  defined by value: if f(a) is a real number

→  defined by limit: if f(a)=0/0 and LHL = RHL

→  not defined: if LHL != RHL and f(a) !in RR

### Examining Function at an input value

plain and simple summary

Whether a function is continuous or defined or not defined is determined by examining
• value at the input value,

• left-hand-limit at the input value, and

• right-hand-limit at the input value.

A function f(x) is examined at an input value x=a. Which of the following is to be examined?

• f(a)
• left-hand-limit
• right-hand-limit
• all the above

The answer is 'all the above'.

It is important to note that the L'Hospital's rule is applicable only if the limit exists. The discussion in this topic is about finding if the limit exists or not. So the L'Hospital's rule is not used in finding the limits.

When a function is examined at an input value, what are the possible deductions one can make about the function at that input value?

• Function is continuous
• Function is not continuous but defined
• Function is not continuous and not defined
• Any one of the above

The answer is 'Any one of the above'.

If a function is not defined at an input value, can it be continuous at that input value?

• Yes. If the limits are equal.
• No. Irrespective of limits if the function is not defined at an input value, it is not continuous.

The answer is 'No. Irrespective of limits if the function is not defined at an input value, it is not continuous at that input value.'
