Section 3.4 Class Notes Quadratic Models Hints for Applications Problems 1. Understanding the problem statement is the key to setting up variables and finding an appropriate function to analyze. 2. Organize the problem information in the following way. List the fixed quantities, list the variable quantities, describe how the variable quantities are related (using a function), describe what is required to address the problem. 3. Look back when you finish solving the problem to evaluate what strategies helped you and whether you might use those strategies again for future problems. (Did you draw a picture, make a graph, set up a table of ordered pairs, experiment with the numbers? Might some other strategy have worked better?)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
