This topic introduces the various types of forms that motion, value, and investment problems can take. The student is introduced to the various ways these types of applications can be encountered and learns how to solve for the unknown in each case.
This series of five lessons introduces the student to three different types of equations, and shows how these equations can be found in various applications involving motion, value, or investment.
This lesson shows the student how to interpret motion problems when the unknown is the sum of two known values. The lesson also previews the other two forms motion problems can take. Then, the student sees examples of motion problems where the sum of two known values is asked for.
In this lesson, the student learns how to interpret motion problems where the unknown is the difference of two known values. The student gets to see many examples where the unknown is the difference of two known values.
This lesson shows the student how to interpret motion problems where the unknown is embedded in two equal values. The student sees many examples where the unknown is embedded in two equal values.
This lesson builds on the knowledge gained in the previous three lessons to show how value problems can be interpreted and solved. The three types of equations that the student learned in the previous three lessons are revisited, only this time in the nature of value problems.
In this lesson, the student utilizes the skills learned in the first three lessons of this series to solve investment problems. The student sees examples of investment problems by using the techniques learned previously in this topic.
