Discuss the potential parameters necessary to model the data in each of the following classes: polynomial,
exponential, logarithmic, absolute value, rational, and trigonometric. Which class best fits this data?
2) Using the data above, develop four models: one linear, one quadratic, one polynomial, and one exponential.
Which one is the best fit?
3) Using the best-fit model from #2, solve the equations and/or inequalities for 2000 and 2010.
4) Using information from http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/hus/2013/018.pdf, justify the accuracy of the model.
This Benchmark Assignment assesses the following Math Program Competencies:
8.1: Use correct algebraic notation and symbols to manipulate expressions, solve equations and inequalities,
and use their results to model, and justify processes. (NCTMC A.2.1; NCTMS 2b)
8.2: Recognize polynomial, exponential, and logarithmic; absolute value; rational and trigonometric function
classes; and understand the use of parameters to model situations with these function classes.
