Thanks so much!  This was delicious (even without cheese) and it was so easy to make - I am no where near a cook. And very low carbs, even eating the entire thing!

Hi there.  I teach university, first year calculus often, and have taught first year university for 9 years.  I think you (and your viewers) should know that if one of my students did this question exactly as you did, writing the work and final answer that you did, I would give them at most 50% (and in fact I did on the midterm just this past February) .  The main problem is that this is a question about LIMITS, and you haven't done ANY.  Continuity is about LIMITS.  Calculus is not about finding the right answer (which of course you did), but about the methods, and the ideas, the way of doing things.  We could debate this, but the fact remains: I have and will continue to give very low marks for this exact work.

Don't like it? It's not a matter of taste. It's a matter of doing the math.

Thanks for posting this.  Wish it was better quality, but glad I can enjoy it even though I wasn't there.

David Bressoud's 2012 talk on the MAA Calculus Study.  Some important points are (a) drop in confidence and (b) the bias against women in persistence, attitudes, and beliefs, which can be fixed using progressive (i.e. IBL) teaching.
