I'd want a story that would go with something similar. It's the graphs versus equations we focus on most.Sue VanHattumhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/10237941346154683902noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5303307482158922565.post-48572504233324401702019-08-17T13:29:16.355-07:002019-08-17T13:29:16.355-07:00Maybe polynomial could be: a box is 2 inches talle...Maybe polynomial could be: a box is 2 inches taller than it is wide, and twice as long as it is tall. What's the volume? (Or the volume is 768 cc, or what is the volume for a box 10 in wide...)<br />My favorite rational functions are t=d/r . It usually takes you 1 hr if you drive 55 mph. How long does it take you if you drive some mph faster than that?<br />John Goldenhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/18212162438307044259noreply@blogger.com
