What is interpolation syntax in Sass, and when do I need it?

The additional video in the teachers notes shows more detail on how to construct the media queries. It mentions that you have to use something called "interpolation syntax" in order to pass the breakpoints to the media query (I think). What is the interpolation syntax and where can I learn more about it? I'd really like to be able to set variables for my media query breakpoints.

I believe using the interpolation syntax for media queries is covered here in this video: https://teamtreehouse.com/library/css-to-sass/refactoring-with-sass/defining-media-queries
