Algebra Applications: Variables and Equations

In this episode of Algebra Applications, two real-world explorations are developed: Biology. Analyzing statistics from honey bee production allows for a mathematical analysis of the so-called Colony Collapse Disorder. Geology. Why do rivers meander instead of traveling in a straight line? In this segment the geological forces that account for a river’s motion are explained.
