Unformatted text preview: PreCalculus Project 1 Optimize our Zoo Using Functions (Revised) Introduction You have been hired by the local community to advise them on how to best design their new zoo. They have limited materials to use and they want to ensure that they get the most out of the materials. You will need to examine their requirements, determine the best way to meet the requirements, and make a scale model or map of your proposed design. Objectives: You will be able to model real situations with functions. You will be able to represent the functions algebraically, numerically (data table), and graphically. You will be able to use proportions to produce a map to scale. Zoo Requirements 1. Gorilla a. We have _________ feet of fence to use for the gorilla cage. b. We want the gorilla to live in a rectangular space with the maximum area possible to swing around. 2. Sheep and Pigs a. We have _____________ feet of fence to use for the sheep and pigs. b. We want the sheep and pigs to live in two adjacent rectangular pens. c. One side of the sheep and pigs area will be bordered by a river for drinking d. We want to give the sheep and pigs the maximum area possible. e. The pig area should be the same size as the sheep area. c. f. 3. Lions, Tigers, and Bears a. We have _____________ feet of fence to use for the lions tigers and bears. b. The animals will live in one rectangular area divided into three equal parts as shown below. c. We want the lions, tigers, and bears to live in the maximum area possible. d. 4. Shark Aquarium a. We want a rectangular aquarium with the left, right, front, back, and bottom is made of clear glass so people can see the sharks b. The top is open (no glass used for top) c. The length should be ______________ times the width. d. The tank should hold a volume of _____________. e. We want to minimize the amount of glass that we use because the material is very expensive. f.

Element Solve the problem Scale Map On Time 4 Mastered You always do these with no errors: Clearly interpret all the information from your graphs, tables, and algebra to solve the problem. The solution could be one number or a set of numbers so labels and units are used to clarify. If possible, a picture is used to clarify your solution and show that you understand how the numbers solve the original problem. Check to see that your solution makes sense. You always do these with no errors: Make a creative, accurately scaled map that represents your proposal for the configuration of the zoo. Show a legend that indicates the scale of actual lengths to map lengths. Label all required areas and clearly indicate any key measurements You're project is completed and handed in before or at the beginning of class on the due date: 3 Proficient You do most of these with few (1 2) minor errors: Clearly interpret all the information from your graphs, tables, and algebra to solve the problem.
