Unit 3: Mathematical Modeling


Often times we encounter questions or problems that require us to “think outside the box.” One of the most important tools of any trade is your mind! The purpose of this unit is to explore how math can be adapted to assist us in making sense of abstract problems. Our driving question is, How do the features of equations and functions model real world scenarios?
