Determine if a relationship is functional and could be represented / modeled by a mathematical Function using several criteria.
• What real-world relationships can be modeled with functions?
• How do you know when you can model a relationship with a function?
• How do you model a relationship with a mathematical function?
• Is there a mathematical relationship between when you leave in the morning for class and whether you arrive to class on time?
• What is the input and the output for a real-world function?
• What is a parameter in a real-world situation to be modeled?
• How can a mathematical model be useful to make business decisions in real-world contexts?
• How can you make a functional algebraic model?
• What are the six properties for determining whether a relationship can be modeled with a functional algebraic model?
• What is fuzzy logic?
• What is a delinquency rate?
• What are the different types of algebraic models that you can use to model a relationship, and how do you know which to use given a graph of data?
• How can you fit a curve to data using a TI graphing calculator?
This lesson and its resources are a good solid explanation of analyzing real-world situations and determining whether they can be modeled using a mathematical function. Several different real-world situations are discussed and analyzed in this video as well as the websites and documents that accompany this video.
