The function $latex f(x)=x^{1/2}$ is continuous on $latex (-\infty,\infty)$ but is not differentiable at 0. Click to see the animation.

x13R1

 

The function is $latex f(x)=x^{2/3}$ and I've added  text("f(x)=x^(2/3)",(0,0), axis_coords=True, horizontal_alignment='left') in the animate command so that it appears on the gif. Click to see the animation
