Unformatted text preview: Seminar Notes June 3, 2011 Yesterday, you wrote out solutions to the problem below, and four people put four different solutions (summarized after the problem statement) on the board. Today, we will revisit these solutions, seeking analogies. If you look carefully enough, you will be able to see part-by-part correspondences between them. Each meaningful piece of each solution is represented in a different way and by different images or symbols in all the other solutions. (For example, the 15 mph that appears in Solution 4 is the rate at which the vertical distance between the graphs that appear in Solution 3 is changing.) Problem. A pink Cadillac leaves Oklahoma City at 6AM headed west on I-40 with the cruise control set at 70 mph. A federal agent in a Toyota follows, leaving at 7AM and traveling 85 mph. When does the Toyota catch up? Solution 1. The following table shows the time, the number of hours each car has been traveling and the miles west of Oklahoma City: hours hours distance distance traveled...
