Algebra Applications: Inequalities

In this episode of Algebra Applications, two real-world explorations of inequalities are developed: Hybrid Cars. An examination of the equations and inequalities that involve miles per gallon (mpg) for city and highway traffic reveals important information about hybrid cars and those with gasoline-powered engines. Floods in Venice. Venice experiences a great deal of flooding, and with the expected rise of sea levels over the next century, this ancient city is in peril. Through a series of inequalities, students analyze the impact of flooding.
