VIDEO: Algebra Applications: Quadratic Functions, Segment 4: Medicine.

From the time a baby is born to the time it reaches 36 months of age, there is dramatic growth in height and weight. An analysis of CDC data reveals a number of quadratic models that doctors can use to monitor the growth and development of children.

VIDEO: Algebra Applications: Exponential Functions

In this episode of Algebra Applications, students explore earthquakes using exponential models. In particular, students analyze the earthquake that struck the Sichuan Province in China in 2008, months before the Beijing Olympics. This dramatic, real-world example allows students to apply their understanding of exponential functions and their inverses, along with data analysis and periodic function analysis.

VIDEO: Algebra Applications: Exponential Functions, Segment 1: Introduction

In this introductory segment students learn about the great earthquake of 2008 that hit the Sichuan province of China. In the process they learn about how exponential functions provide a good model for describing earthquake intensity.

VIDEO: Algebra Applications: Exponential Functions, Segment 2: What Is an Earthquake?

The basic definition of an exponential function is shown in the intensity function for an earthquake. Students analyze data and perform an exponential regression based on data from the Sichuan earthquake.

VIDEO: Algebra Applications: Exponential Functions, Segment 3: What Is the Difference between Earthquake Intensity and Magnitude?

An exponential model describes the intensity of an earthquake, while a logarithmic model describes the magnitude of an earthquake. In the process students learn about the inverse of an exponential function.

VIDEO: Algebra Applications: Exponential Functions, Segment 4: How Is Earthquake Magnitude Measured?

An earthquake is an example of a seismic wave. A wave can be modeled with a trigonometric function. Using the TI-Nspire, students link the amplitude to an exponential function to analyze the dramatic increase in intensity resulting from minor changes to magnitude.

VIDEO: Algebra Applications: Linear Functions, Segment 3: Oil Exploration.

The potential for oil exploration in the controversial Alaska National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) sets the scene for this problem. A linear regression of oil consumption data over the past 25 years reveals an interesting pattern. How could new oil fields like ANWR help in breaking our dependence on foreign oil?
