Can someone explain the relationship of temperature to U?

We learned that in constant temperature conditions, internal energy is constant. Why is this? Can heat and work change if T is constant?

With this equation, you can see that when change in temperature is zero, change in internal energy is also zero. Since , when change in internal energy is zero.
