In electrical engineering, you’ll need to find the rates at which alternating currents and voltages are changing. In financial applications, you may want to calculate the rate at which continuously compounded interest is growing. And in healthcare, you might need to calculate the rate at which per capita costs are rising, where the total costs and the patient population are both functions of time.
In short, you’ll need to know how to differentiate trigonometric, exponential, and logarithmic functions, as well as the products and quotients of functions.
Finding an undefined limit by substitution
- Find a resource with a tutorial/ information that will help you create a specific, original, math problem related to your topic. Remember, you are NOT teaching the whole topic, but just how to solve ONE PROBLEM you’ve created. You must cite your source in APA format. (Even if you know how to create and solve a problem related to your topic, you still must include a source that your classmates can reference, to read more about what you are teaching.)
- Tell us the problem you’ve created. Remember, your problem must be ORIGINAL: made up by YOU. DO NOT use a problem that has a full solution from a resource.
- Tell us how to solve your problem step by step. Your solution should include all mathematical steps as well as explanations in your own words. You can type this with the equation editor right here in the reply box, you can use an image file to show hand-written work, or you can make a video using the media tool to provide your explanations! I encourage you to get creative with how you explain your solution!
