Plzzzzzzzzz Help with final marking perios project.

    CP 3 – Adv. Algebra and Trig. – 6th Marking Period Project

    Your project for the final marking period of this year:

    Find graphs of one example each of exponential, linear, inverse, absolute value, and periodic models from the magazines, newspapers, the internet, or your book (only as a last resort). Make sure you cite the source of the graphs.

    For each of the examples of the function models, talk about why this particular phenomenon has graphed out as that particular function model (e.g. why the graph looks like a linear model). Then, find an equation (using transformations and other ideas from the unit) for each of the graphs you have found.

    The more outside sources you use, the higher your grade will be. Use your textbook only as a last resort!

    Present your results on either a poster-board or in a booklet. Remember, presentation counts.

    As always the grading scale is as follows:

    On time/Complete 50%
    Appearance 20%
    Introduction 5%
    Results/Discussion 20%
    Conclusion 5%

    Basically I need a story problem for these raphs.
    absolute value,
    and periodic models

    mainly need Inverse story problems and Periodic modle stoory problems.

    are you asking anyone to write a story for you?
    How about you go to the library, or a bookstore and take a look at Algerba the easy way, and Calculus the easy way. They have good stories about these problems above. But as far as I assume, by copying it all, you'd get a straight 0 because most of the people know these books and stories.

    Why do you want to find "a story problem for these graphs"?

    You appear to have given all the directions verbatim and nothing is said about "story problems"!

    perhaps you are referring to word problems?

    Time from first post to third plea for somone to help 5 minutes. That is more than a little unreasonable.

    (not that I have any idea what an inverse story problem is.)

    As far as I can see you have two openings:

    Once upon a time...

    A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away...

    :tongue: :biggrin:

    This kind of plea shouldn't even be in the homework section - is there not a PF rule about asking for direct answers without any sign of working, or even thinking...
