Pre Calculus and Real World Applications

1. Introductory paragraph.
2. What was the easiest new concept in pre-calculus for you? Why? (1 paragraph)
3. What was the most difficult concept in pre-calculus for you? Please provide two
examples of the concept you named including different applications of the concept. Why
do you think it was so difficult? What steps could you take to make sure you have a better
grasp on difficult tasks in the future, please cite at least one source? (2 paragraphs)
4. Pre-calculus has plenty of real-world applications. Please write about at least 2
different, specific examples of where pre-calculus was used in history. For the real-world
examples, please cite at least 3 sources. (3 paragraphs)
5. Conclusion (1 paragraph)
6. Finally, come up with five examples of real life/word problems you might put on
a test if you were the teacher. Each problem must require at least five non-basic
mathematical steps not including using opposite operations. (You can obviously use
opposite operations but it cannot be one of the five non-basic steps). You must
completely solve the equations, write out every step and get the correct answer. This part
of the paper can be handwritten.
