From: William To: Teacher2Teacher Public Discussion Date: 2005111421:55:03 Subject: Re: HELP! The easiest way to think about it (but strictly speaking technically not correct) is that continuous values take all the values between two points, but discrete do not for example think of a position... you measure your position at time a and time b you would connect p(a) and p(b) because you had to go from p(a) to p(b) (unless you own a transporter beam me up!) as a discrete... think of how many apples you have if you have 10 and someone gives you 1 then you have 11. But at no point did you have anything other than 10 or 11
