 Quote: in proving uniform continuity, how do we choose the parameter d? any helpful clues?

Your most helpful clues are likely to be in your textbook examples.
Given e > 0 you have to find a d, usually expressed in terms of e such
that:

| f(x) - f(y) | < e when |x - y| < e.

How you do that depends on the form of the function f(x) you are
dealing with. One common method involves using the mean value theorem
if you have the right conditions. If f' is continuous and | f'(x) | <
M on your domain you can use the MVT to write:

| f(x) - f(y) | < M | x - y |

which will be less than e if | x - y | < e / M
