Closed Captioned Video: Algebra Applications: Rational Functions

In this episode of Algebra Applications, students explore various scenarios that can be explained through the use of rational functions. Such disparate phenomena as submarines, photography, and the appearance of certain organisms can be explained through rational function models.

Closed Captioned Video: Algebra Applications: Rational Functions, Segment 1: Submarines

In spite of their massive size, submarines are precision instruments. A submarine must withstand large amounts of water pressure; otherwise, a serious breach can occur. Rational functions are used to study the relationship between water pressure and volume. Students graph rational functions to study the forces at work with a submarine.

Closed Captioned Video: Algebra Applications: Rational Functions, Segment 2: Biology

All living things take up a certain amount of space, and therefore have volume. They also have a certain amount of surface area. The ratio of surface area to volume, which is a rational function, reveals important information about the organism. Students look at different graphs of these functions for different organisms.
