Mathematical objects which are discrete can only take specific and separate values as opposed to those objects which are continuous which can take a range of values.

Some topics are grouped together in the area of study called Discrete Mathematics.

(*) Some small children will try to treat age as continuous variable - responding "Five and three-quarters etc."
