The Intermediate Value Theorem-Obvious or Not?

Edward Hernandez-Corchado*, George Fox University (Undergraduate Student)
Talk Abstract: 
Many Calculus I instructors often do not prove the The Intermediate Value Theorem because it seems intuitive and obvious to both the instructor and the students. Moreover, the proof can be complicated. The talk addresses why the IVT is not as obvious through examples and the benefits of having the proof; even if it is not formal.
