## Irrational Exponent By MathLearner

After completing this blog post, what I gather from this assignment. I would say a rational exponent consists of powers. There are various functions that represent a simpleÂ version of a rational exponent. That dependsÂ on whether the function is based on multiplication or division. The way they would be represented as a simple ration exponentÂ is…

## Reflection ~ Before the Exam

My experience in Precalculus since the first exam has been a rollercoaster. What I mean by that is I would do a DesmosÂ activity in class or for a blog assignment; feel as if I had grasped it well.

All through the movement of a red dot that goes around a circle. When the red dot is located at 12 o’clock, the tide is…

## Feel the Earth Shake

Â Â Â Logarithms are used to solve exponential equations because it helps figure out what the coefficient needs to be powered by in orderÂ to make the exponential equation true. The reason why logarithms are important when it comes to the studying of earthquakes because they could help simplify the magnitude levels of the earthquake….

For this blog post, I’ve been required to pick a skyscraper from the website “aviewoncities”. I decided to focus on the Lipstick Building. The building is 496ft tall. The definition for subjects studied today are the following; AÂ Growth factor is a starting value that has aÂ quantity which will be multiplied by itself over time. AÂ Growth…

## Discussing Composition of Functions

After completingÂ the Desmos activity. I would define the composition of functions as a formula that consists of two functions to be the formula’s input and output. An example would be the GeoGebra activity. The machine I studied out of the five apps, was app number two. The formula forf(x)Â is unknown and am having a hard…

## Dr. Rational

Â Â Â Â Â Â In this Desmos activity the main topic was rational functions. It used the concentration of medicine in the bloodstream as away to show how this topic could be used in a real world setting. The way rational functions are used in medicine is to figure out how much time the…

## Reflectionđ

After completing precalculus this far in the semester. I believe this course has definitely made me a more of an independent (I guess you can call) “math worker”. Â After completing many of the online assignments. I do not find working on math online or in solitude as intimidating as I did in the beginning of…

## Formula 1 đ¤

In this blog post, the DesmosÂ activity required that I interact with a racing car app. This racing car app deals with roots and finding which one would pass through the orange cones and to the finish line without going off track. I found it very difficult to find a formula that could accomplish this task….

## Fancy Factoring

Â We’ve all learned what factoring is in at least third grade. The simple explanation taught to us at this grade period is the following… Factoring deals with having a number, x and figuring out how many numbers multiplied could give you the value x. A more advanced methodÂ of this method is to factor using the…
