Math Week 3DQR

Brandon Bliss

Hello Class,

For this week I chose question number 25. What are some advantages and disadvantages of a Dutch Hip Roof style?  A Dutch hip roof, sometimes called a Dutch gable roof, is a combination of hip and gable roof styles in which a gable is located at the end of the ridge, and at the top of a hip roof plane. There are many Advantages to having a hip roof. Some advantages are…

· The four-way slope makes it much more stable than other roofing types and allows water and snow to run off with ease. There is also more ventilation and space for an attic.

· A lot more attic space, plus better attic ventilation.

· Great heavy wind performance.

· Provides ideal protection from severe weather like snow, rain, and high winds.

Some of the Disadvantages are…

· Hip roofs are more complex than flat or gable roofs, making the odds of failure a bit higher.

· More expensive because it is a more complex design that requires more building materials including a complex system of trusses or rafters. 

· Provide fewer opportunities to use natural light.

Gable roofs have been used for centuries, there are now six different versions of it. They can be used more than once on a roof depending on the size of the house, one will consist of two sections with an arch meeting by the narrow top- looking like the letter A. The best material to use for this roof would be something that has good resistance weather, such as asphalt but metal sheets, clay tiles, and concrete can be used.  A good reason why gable roofs are so common is because they are cheaper to build. However, in areas that are prone to hurricanes and high winds, houses and buildings tend to have little to no luck on keeping something over their head with these roofs even if asphalt is used. This is possible because of how the structure is created. Due to the narrow rooftops that gable roofs are shaped into, the upper part is more likely to catch the wind rather than a flat rooftop would. It unfortunately catches the wind by the “cupped” portion that the two sections create, right under the pin point. When the wind gets stuck into the upper area of the roof, it can build pressure against the roof and pop it off. They have also been known to act similar to a wing on a sailboat when wind catches onto it, which is not something anyone would want for a stable structure.

It is difficult to learn how to do story problems because there are so many

different types. If you want to do well on this week’s test, FOLLOW THESE

INSTRUCTIONS!

Step 1: Read the file entitled “Read This First”

Step 2: Open the file “Systems of Equations with Answers”.

Step 3: Go through ALL the story problems provided and try to solve them. Pretend it’s a

Practice Test. Check your answers with the key provided.

Step 4: Pick ONE of the problems that you got right (that has not already been solved by a

classmate) and demonstrate its solution for the rest of us.

Step 5: Study how your classmates solved the problems that you missed. Remember that

these may be on the test!

Note: Problems are selected on a first-come basis. If a classmate has already chosen a

problem you had wanted to answer, please select a different problem. Our goal is to answer

and discuss as many different problems as possible.

To demonstrate your problem, select Start a New Conversation and make the subject of your

post BOTH the problem number and topic (#10 Jarod and the Bunnies).

Begin your post with a statement of the problem so that we can understand what you are

doing.

The answers are at the end of the file, so don’t just give an answer—we can already see what

the answers are. Don’t post an explanation unless your answer matches the correct one!

Your goal should be to explain this problem so well that a classmate who “just doesn’t get it”

will be able to understand it completely!

This is a moderated discussion. Your posting will not be visible to the rest of the class until I

approve it. Occasionally, more than one person will tackle a problem before they can see the

work of others. In that case, credit will be given to all posters. Once the solution to a problem

has become visible, that problem is off limits and you will need to choose a different problem

in order

to get credit.

I will indicate in the grading feedback if corrections need to be made. If you haven’t received

credit, first double-check my comments. If everything looks OK, then email me asking me to

check on it. You must make the necessary corrections and have your work posted in order to

receive credit.

For this particular Discussion, no responses are required – your initial post is worth the full 10

points. Should you choose to respond to a classmate, a request for clarification on the

procedure used, a suggestion for an alternate method of solving the problem or a general

comment about the technique would all be appropriate. I’m sure that a “thank you” for an

exceptionally clear explanation would also be welcome!

You will see more options show up.

Right below the Bold button
you will see the Greek letter sigma.

This is the button to open the equation editor.

Select Graphical Equation

The Equation Editor has lots of tools, so let’s look at a few of the basics.

Good news: most things look like what they do.

For example, if you need a fraction, you will click the button that looks
like an empty fraction.

You will see a fraction appear – you just need to fill it in.

Use the arrows to navigate to the bottom of the fraction.

Be sure to use the right arrow to navigate
out of the fraction before continuing with your equation.

You will notice that the cursor is tall in this picture. That is how you
know that you are out of the fraction.

Another commonly used symbol is the exponent.

This time let’s try to create the expression:

To do this you will start by creating a fraction.

Once you are in the fraction, you type the x
and then click the exponent

button and then the 2.

Use the right arrow button to get out of the exponent
before typing the – 5.

Then, use the down arrow to move to the denominator.
In this picture you can see the cursor.
Note that the cursor will show you if

you are still in the exponent or not, so watch carefully!

Once you have the top of the fraction done …

… just rinse and repeat for the bottom!

Once done click insert.

We did it!

If you want to add words to your equations,
just type them in,

select them, and then click on the text font.

Experiment with it until

you can get the desired results.

The math may still be a challenge …

… but now writing the answers shouldn’t be!

Forum: If Only I Had a System…

Applications of Systems of Linear Equalities

The Problem:

When students are surveyed about what makes a good math Forum, at least half of the
responses involve

 “discussing how to work problems”
 “seeing how this math applies to real-life situations”

This Forum on applications of systems of equations addresses both of these concerns.

Unfortunately, the typical postings are far from ideal.

This is an attempt to rectify the situation. Please read this in its entirety before you
post your answer!

Pick-up games in the park vs. the NBA:

Shooting hoops in the park may be lots of fun, but it scarcely qualifies as the precision
play of a well-coached team. On the one hand, you have individuals with different
approaches and different skill levels, “doing their own thing” within the general rules of
the game. On the other hand you have trained individuals, using proven strategies and
basing their moves on fundamentals that have been practiced until they are second
nature.

The purpose of learning algebra is to change a natural, undisciplined approach to
individual problem solving into an organized, well-rehearsed system that will work on
many different problems. Just like early morning practice, this might not always be
pleasant; just like Michael Jordan, if you put in the time learning how to do it correctly,
you will score big-time in the end.

But my brain just doesn’t work that way. . .

Nonsense! This has nothing to do with how your brain works. This is a matter of
learning to read carefully, to extract data from the given situation and to apply a
mathematical system to the data in order to obtain a desired answer. Anyone can learn
to do this. It is just a matter of following the system; much like making cookies is a
matter of following a recipe.

“Pick-up Game” Math

It is appalling how many responses involve plugging in numbers until it works.

 “My birthday is the eleventh, so I always start with 11 and work from there.”
 “The story involved both cats and dogs so I took one of the numbers, divided by

2 and then I experimented.”
 “First I fire up Excel…”
 “I know in real-life that hot dogs cost more than Coke, so I crossed my fingers

and started with $0.50 for the Coke…”

The reason these “problem-solving” boards are moderated is so that these creative
souls don’t get everyone else confused!

NBA Math

In more involved problems, where the answer might come out to be something
irrational, like the square root of three, you are not likely to just randomly guess the
correct answer to plug it in. To find that kind of answer by an iterative process (plugging
and adjusting; plugging and adjusting; …) would take lots of tedious work or a computer.
Algebra gives you a relative painless way of achieving your objective without wearing
your pencil to the nub.

The reason that all of the homework has involved x’s and y’s and two equations, is that
we are going to solve these problems that way. Each of these problems is a story about
two things, so every one of these is going to have an x and a y.

In some problems, it’s helpful to use different letters, to help keep straight what the
variables stand for. For example, let L = the length of the rectangle and W = the width.

The biggest advantage to this method is that when you have found that w = 3 you are
more likely to notice that you still haven’t answered the question, “What is the length of
the rectangle?”

Here are the steps to the solution process:

 Figure out from the story what those two things are.

o one of these will be x

o the other will be y

 The first sentence of your solution will be “Let x = ” (or “Let L = ” )

o Unless it is your express purpose to drive your instructor right over the
edge, make sure that your very first word is “Let”

 The second sentence of your solution will be “Let y = ” (or “Let W = ” )

 Each story gives two different relationships between the two things.

o Use one of those relationships to write your first equation.

o Use the second relationship to write the second equation.

 Now demonstrate how to solve the system of two equations. You will be using
either

o substitution

o or elimination – just like in the homework.

More examples…

For this problem, I’d use substitution to solve the system of equations:

The length of a rectangle blah, blah, blah…

Let L = the length of the rectangle

… blah, blah, blah twice the width

Let W = the width of the rectangle

The length is 6 inches less than twice the width

L = 2W – 6

The perimeter of the rectangle is 56

2L + 2W =56

For this one, I’d use elimination to solve the system of equations:

Blah, blah, blah bought 2 cokes…

Let x = the price of a coke

.. blah, blah, blah 4 hot dogs

Let y = the price of a hot dog

2 cokes plus 4 hot dogs cost 8.00

2x + 4y = 8.00

3 cokes plus 2 hot dogs cost 8.00

3x + 2y = 8.00

For this one, I’d use substitution to solve the system of equations:

One number is blah, blah, blah…

Let x = the first number

…blah, blah, blah triple the second number

Let y = the second number

The first number is triple the second

x = 3y

The sum of the numbers is 24

x + y = 24

Checking your answers vs. Solving the problem

The problem: Two numbers add to give 4 and subtract to give 2. Find the numbers.

Solving the problem:

Let x = the first number

Let y = the second number

Two numbers add to give 4: x + y = 4

Two numbers subtract to give 2: x – y = 2

Our two equations are: x + y = 4
x – y = 2 Adding the equations we get

2x = 6

x = 3 The first number is 3.

x + y = 4 Substituting that answer into equation 1

3 + y = 4

y = 1 The second number is 1.

Checking the answers:

Two numbers add to give 4: 3 + 1 = 4

The two numbers subtract to give 2: 3 – 1 = 2

Do NOT demonstrate how to check the answers that are provided and call that
demonstrating how to solve the problem!

Formulas vs. Solving equations

Formulas express standard relationships between measurements of things in the real
world and are probably the mathematical tools that are used most frequently in real-life
situations.

Solving equations involves getting an answer to a specific problem, sometimes based
on real-world data, and sometimes not. In the process of solving a problem, you may
need to apply a formula. As a member of modern society, it is assumed that you know
certain common formulas such as the area of a square or the perimeter of a rectangle. If
you are unsure about a formula, just Google it. Chances are excellent it will be in one of
the first few hits.

If you are still baffled:

Dividing and Multiplying Fractions

Dividing Fractions

You must look at the equation as how many of a whole number is in the fractions.  To then build a model of the exact question of the equations given. With a whole number you break the fraction down into a model of the fraction. And then you shade in the whole number or number it is being divided by. Then you must see how many the whole number can fit into the model. The groups you will group the rows which will make your numerator of the fraction. To find the denominator you have to find the total area parts of the model for top and the bottom. Then you will multiply both sides. Which will then give you the denominator. You put your numbers into the fraction to have your answer.

 

Multiply Fractions

You must first look at this as how many of the first fraction of the equation is in the second fraction of the equation you are multiplying it by. To break it down you have to make a model with the second fraction given in the equation. Then you are going to make sure to draw in the first fraction vertically (make sure to shade in the correct amount to make the fraction) and second fraction is going to be drawn in horizontally. Next you will number the first fraction of the equation in the model over the shaded area. Finally, you will count all of the areas within your model shaded or not shaded to make the denominator of your answer. Also, you are going to make sure to count the number areas that are both shaded and numbered and that will be your numerator.  This will then give you your answer you, in some cases you may have to break it down depending on the instructions you are given to do at the time.

I watched 2 videos on dividing and multiplying fractions. Once I started watching the videos I chuckled a bit at the images of the “area model”. It has been quite some time since I have seen or used this model when learning my fractions. I used to use the area model when helping my son with his homework when he was in elementary. I think it is a great way to help learners feel confident in the work they are doing. I used to use the area model as well in school until I strengthened my ability to do simple math in my mind. I have always felt I was pretty good with math; making it up to Calculus in high school (18 years ago). I cannot say the video wasn’t helpful, because I can forward them to my nieces when they get to this level in elementary school. It has been so long since I have taken college-level math and I do not mind the refresher. It is only week one and memories are firing up; equations that overwhelmed me a month ago are now flowing back into my subconscious.

Austin peer respond

Austin pizzi week 4 discussion response needed

So I am a little on the fence with this question. I believe that you do need some type of math with whatever you do. It might be a little math but its still math. Say you are a nurse, you have to measure doses all the time for you patients. Say you are an architect, you will defiently need math for that for measurements on building. Now if you are in the field of lets say computer tech, you don’t really need math for fixing a computer. Thats more like a knowledge then actually math usage. To me math is used for a little of everything and I do enjoy math.

Explain your position on why it is/is not important to learn mathematical content you may never use.

Include examples to support your reasoning in essay format. 

My thought about the matter

Mathematics is taught in all courses because it serves as the central subjects in human being. Mathematics encourages thinking logically, creates mental rigor and effectively builds mental discipline. Additionally, Mathematics provides the basic knowledge in understanding other science and artistic courses. it may however seem crazy when student is learning some mathematical concepts such as graphing lines, factoring, solving equations and using exponents but they serve a great purpose in the career and personal life of an individual (Ningsih E. F., & Retnowati, E, 2020)

Graphing lines are used in learning and solving different mathematical problems using graphical methods. It enables the learner to trace and study changes over a long and short period of time as well as comparing changes that occur at the same period of time. They are majorly used to track small changes of events. Use of exponents enables people express otherwise tedious mathematical numbers in a simpler form hence saving time hence energy. Learning to solve equations enables students to solve other mathematical problems. Equations develop a sharp brain for a student that help their mathematical life. Factoring serves as an important tool in solving mathematical quadratic equations. It is used to solve complicated mathematical expressions by grouping similar expressions in brackets and solving them independently (Ningsih E. F., & Retnowati, E, 2020)

Graphing lines and factoring are applied in many real-life situations. Graphical lines are use in evaluating changes over a particular period of time.  Some of the professional fields where graphical lines are applied are medicine and pharmacy, research processes and economics analysis. In medicine. In personal life graphical skills are used to evaluating changes over time and this makes you take action over the noted changes with immediate effect. Factoring enables an individual to solve many real-life problems in life at the same time (Ningsih E. F., & Retnowati, E, 2020)

 It is applied in dividing something equally, comparing prices, making calculations during travel and exchanging money. These are examples on the importance of these mathematical concepts Learning mathematical concepts is important. Although some concept may seem to be useless in the course work, they develop a sharp brain that enables the learner solve other real-life situations.  These mathematical concepts help prevent chaos and bring orderliness. These concepts natures important qualities in human life. These qualities include effective communication, problem solving ability, critical thinking, spatial thinking, creativity and power of reasoning. This is the importance of learning these mathematical concepts that may seem to be useless in real life (Ningsih E. F., & Retnowati, E, 2020)

Good afternoon, class. This week’s discussion post is regarding the video “Types of Graphs and when to use them” by MooMooMath and Science. We are tasked with determining the optimal graph based on various data collecting situations.

 

a. To graph a representation of monthly texting data a Bar Graph would work the best. A bar graph is used to show the number in categories. In this case we are trying to determine who I text the most during the course of the month.

 

On one axis of the graph I would have represented the names of the people with whom I am texting. On the opposing axis I would have represented the number of texts that correspond to each person.

 

a. To graph a representation of monthly allowances of bills in relation to income a Circle Graph would work the best. A circle graph or pi chart is used to compare parts of the data to the whole.

 

The whole of the graph would represent my total monthly income (for example, $3,000). Each “slice” of the chart then would be the percentage of income each bill utilizes. For example if I pay $1,000 per month in rent, then rent would be 33.33% of the chart.

 

a. To graph a representation of savings with regular monthly deposits a Line Graph would work the best. A line graph is used to show changes of data over time.

 

In this case the data would be our total amount in savings with the graph representing the changes in that amount over time based on each monthly deposit.

 

a. To graph a representation of employees’ weights in a monthly weight loss challenge a Double Bar Graph would work best. A double bar graph is best used to compare two or more sets of data.

 

We would have one axis represent the weight of the employee, while the opposing axis would represent each month for the duration of the challenge. Each bar would then represent a different employee.

My name is Joshua Payne. I do not really have a preference for what I am called so feel free to call me whatever it is you like. I am currently pursuing a degree in Psychology before starting my career as a middle school teacher. I could not remember the last time I took a math class. It would have to be either geometry or pre-calc in 2013/2014 during my last year of high school. It has been quite the long time and I have never been a fan of math. I am currently taking this class because I decided to knock out some of my general education requirements while I am away on mission. The slideshow had a few funny slides, I relate to all the ones talking about not liking or being good at math. I do not believe my attitude will affect my success in class, whether I like the class or not it has to get done to accomplish my goals. Also, I do not want to be unsuccessful and have to pay the Army back with my money! I have ample amount of free time during this mission, and I plan on using most of it to spread out the workload of all my classes I am enrolled in. I use a planner for pretty much everything and after reading the syllabus I am now aware of the estimated 5 hours it will take to complete a module. I also plan on working on things from future weeks whenever I can in order to have a safety blanket in case of any unexpected situations. I look forward to finishing these 8 weeks with everyone.

Hello Class,

I prefer to go by my first name, Jaya. I am currently working towards an Associates of Applied Science to become a Diagnostic Medical Sonographer. I am originally from California; however, I serve in the US Army so I tend to move around often. The last class I have attended was AP Calculus BC in High School, which was extremely difficult for me. I decided to take College Algebra due to me no longer understanding the concepts of math, it has been a little to long for my liking to pick up where I left off at. I believe that this will help me in my other classes for my specific area of study as well. I also decided that this was a decent time to enroll into another class because it may help the time go by faster out here. I have two of the cutest German shepherd puppies and a wonderful Husband back home that I am eagerly waiting to be with again. I am an only child with a small number of cousins so I do not have a lot of family to depend on when it come to their educational paths because they were not the strongest in it, which made me connect to the image of the family “no one in my family is good at math”. Although I am deployed, I have full intentions of completing this course with all my effort. There is no point on prolonging my future any more than I already have, I want to be able to get out of the Military and start my new career quickly. I plan to get the hang of the big time zone difference from where I am located to when the assignments are due, which is crucial to being successful in this class. I also would like to grasp the concepts as much as I can since I did struggle a lot in High School. Another plan would to hopefully apply these learnings to my future classes that I will take in order to complete my program.

Math Week 2 DQR

Sean Aldridge

Good afternoon everyone,

I chose to watch a video on Compound Inequalities because, during the first week, I had the most issues on this topic. You can find the video I watched at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A3xPhzs-KBI. 

During the first week’s module on compound inequalities, I could not understand the difference between an “and” and an “or” inequality. If the question stated “and” or an “or,” I could solve the problem with no issues. When the problem did not say if it was an “and” or an “or,” I had issues. I watched the video lesson on LimeSpring multiple times and watched other videos I found on my own, and I still do not understand how to choose if the answer is an “and” or an “or.” 

This Khan Academy video gave two examples of “and” and “or” problems, but just like all the other videos I watched on this topic, it identified whether the problem was an “and” or an “or” at the beginning and didn’t explain how to decide which it would be. I know I am missing something while watching videos on this topic and will hopefully understand at some point.

It’s been well over 15 years since I have taken a math class.  During the week 1 lesson and quiz I struggled with completing the exponent portion of the class. Failing to correctly solve a portion of a math problem ultimately ends with receiving the wrong answer which could result in pass/fail on a test.  My struggles with exponents led me to looking for additional resources.  The handy helper that I found most useful is on exponents, specifically the Khan Academy’s Intro to Exponents.   I like how the Khan Academy’s website explains the different parts of the problem (the base and the exponent).  I struggled with correctly completing the multiplication portion of the exponents.  I love that the website shows the user how to solve the problem by breaking down the multiplication process into steps.  The website also offers a wide variety of practice problems for the user to complete to gain a better understanding of the concept.  Some of the practice material includes problem that involve working the decimals and fractions.  The one thing that I do not like is the location of the actual handy helper’s document.  I found it hard to find the first couple of times I needed it.  I ended up adding it to my favorites to make it easier on me.  I would recommend maybe placing a link to the handy helper document in an announcement to make it easier to find in the future.   I found that this site may be helpful to others who have not taken a math class in a while and forgotten the more basic concepts of algebra. 

If you would like to learn more about exponents, check out the Khan Academy’s Intro to Exponents at https://www.khanacademy.org/math/cc-sixth-grade-math/cc-6th-arithmetic-operations/cc-6th-exponents/a/introduction-to-exponents

The internet can be a powerful ally when you are trying to figure out how to
solve a problem.

When you select the Activities and Assessment for the week of the class, you will
see a section labeled Additional Resources.

The link on that page to “Cheat Sheets and Handy Helpers” takes you to a page
with links to videos, math sites, PowerPoints, cheat sheets and other materials
that explain the topics covered in that section.

Pick one of the Handy Helpers from either Week 1 or Week 2 that no one else
has reported on, select Start a New Conversation, and make the subject the
name of the link (for example: YouTube patrickJMT: Finding the Slope of a
Line). Then give us a review of the “helper”. Include what you like or don’t like
about it and why you think it may be helpful to others.

In the body of your text, also include a link to the site since it is sometimes
difficult to find a specific item among all the resources. That way your classmates
can also benefit from the site – or avoid it, depending on your review!

You must also give a substantive response to two classmate’s posts (worth 2

Step 4

The selling price after the first markdown was found to be 

SP1 = $88.20.

 This value will be used to calculate the selling price after the next price change, 

SPfinal.

 Since the next change is a markup of 14%, the markup percentage will be added to 100%. This sum will then be multiplied by 

SP1

 as follows.

SPfinal = SP1(100% + markup%)

As before, the percentages must first be converted to decimals. The second price change is a markup of 14%, so we have 

100% + markup% = 100% + 14% = 114%.

 Converting 114% to a decimal gives  .

Substitute this decimal value and 

SP1 = $88.20

 to find the final selling price (in $) of the birdcage, rounding the result to the nearest cent.

SPfinal

 = 

SP1(100% + markup%)

The amount of markup was found to be 

M = $530.40,

Substitute this decimal value and

Tutorial Exercise

A wholesaler requires a markup of 35% based on cost for merchandise sold. What should the selling price of a watch be if each watch costs $90?= 121.5

Need Help? Read It Watch It

The selling price of an item, SP, is found as follows where C is the cost the retailer pays for an item and 

%MCOST

 is the percent markup.

SP = C(100% + %MCOST)

The percentages must be converted to decimal form before this formula can be used. The wholesaler requires a markup of 35% so the cost of the watch C will be multiplied by 

100% + 35% =   %.

 Converting this percent to a decimal gives   .

Tutorial Exercise

The wholesale cost of a birdcage is $55. The original markup was 47% based on selling price. Find the final sale price (in $) after the following series of price changes: a markdown of 15% and a markup of 14%. (Round each intermediate selling price to the nearest cent.)

sale price =$100.55

Need Help? Read It Watch It

Step 1

When solving a series of markups and markdowns, remember that each new markup or markdown should be based on the previous selling price. The original selling price, SP0, must be found before applying the markup or markdown. This is calculated as follows where C is the wholesale cost and %MSP is the percent markup based on the selling price.

SP0 = 

C

100% − %MSP

The percentages must be converted to decimal form before this formula can be used. The wholesaler used a markup of 47% based on the selling price. Thus, the cost the customer paid, SP, will be divided by 

100% − %MSP = 100% − 47% =  %.

Converting this percent to a decimal gives   .
