1. Pick a field of study of interest to you and give an example of variation in that field. Some possible areas to consider are: Economics, Finance, Geometry and Physics.

Example: If your hourly pay rate is $15/hour, then your weekly pay p is given by the formula p=15h where h is the number of hours worked in a week. So, your weekly pay varies directly as the number of hours worked in a week with the constant of variation = 15.

2. Give an example from real life where inverse functions are utilized. For ideas, look it up on the internet or find some examples in the

textbook.

3. In your own words answer the following question – What is compound interest? What is the difference between compounded monthly and

continuous?

4. Many students have often asked questions such as: Why do I need to learn Mathematics? Where and when am I going to use it in my life?

Now that you are almost done with this College Algebra class, can you now explain why it is important for everyone to learn Mathematics? Can you also give examples on when, where, and how you have used and are using Mathematics in your everyday life?

Please give examples and feel free to include budgeting, investing, traveling, locating, securing personal informations, spending, saving, investing, measuring, cooking, etc.

EXAMPLE:

Hello!

Math is an everyday tool that I use in everything I do. Math is important because it helps me take care of everything I need to on a daily basis. I was able to calculate how much money I would save for the year after doing my monthly budgets.

I was able to figure out the distance, mileage, time, and how much it would cost to drive from Florida to New York last month. Then I was able point out the exact location of my final destination on a map.
