Program 18 discusses population growth and the importance of knowing it's rate of growth. Examples of growth rate are given from the banking industry (compound interest) and fishing industry (fish population). Program 19 explains conic sections, giving their history in terms of discovery and applications. Shows how various forms of a circle can be derived by a cone and a plane

Mathematics : modeling our world(
Book
)
7 editions published between 1998 and 2010 in English and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The authors of this text demonstrate using mathematical concepts to solve truly interesting problems about how our world works. Mathematical modeling is the process of looking at a problem, finding a mathematical core, working within that core, and coming back to see what mathematics tells you about the problem. Real problems ask such questions as: How do we create computer animations? Where should we locate a fire station? How do we effectively control an animal population? This approach integrates a mix of ideas in geometry, algebra, and data analysis with technologies of computers and graphing calculators
