Continuous variables - In mathematics, a variable is designating a value that may change within the scope of a given problem or set of operations. In contrast, a constant designates a value that remains unchanged, though often unknown or undetermined.

A continuous variable is a number that takes on any value between it's highest and lowest point.

One way in which continuous variables relate to my major is often when physical therapists assistants get a patient they sometimes measure their range of motion. Every measurement has a degree of uncertainty associated with it.
