Writing Assignment
This semester we have studied several concepts including the derivative and its applications (graphing, maxima/minima applications, and motion).
Create and write a problem that uses the derivative to solve it. The problem should be based on an area of interest to you or related to your intended major. Include a complete solution to the problem that you create. If an illustration adds clarity to your problem or solution, include one. Please type or neatly write the assignment using complete sentences.
The assignment is due no later than the beginning of class, December 9, and is worth 20 points.
