On Friday Sanah was assigned a very interesting assignment by her math teacher, Mrs. Janit, during period one about Rate of Change. By the end of the day, she had received all the information needed to go about completing the assignment!
The Roller Coaster Mystery!
We?!? But Mrs. Janit Assigned you to go and I get motion sickness on big rides!!!
Yay! The Manager from Canada's Wonderland sent me the function and model drop of The Adventure Express! Now we have to go on the ride!
I am still worried about this roller coaster ride, you know I do not like them...
So technically for every 1 meter we go forward, we drop 1 meter as well?!
Don't worry, based on my calculations the Average Rate of Change is only -1 so it is not as fast as you think it is!
Exactly! Lexi, you will be fine, relax!
That's what Lexi thought.....
See, it is not that bad!
Yea, maybe you are rig---
YOU LIAR! YOU SAID THE AVERAGE RATE OF CHANGE IS NEGATIVE ONE!!! THAT WAS NOT -1, IT FELT FASTER!!!!!
After Lexi thought she was never going to make it....
You are right! When we were definitely going down faster than -1!
While driving home...
I don't know.... and I am still mad! This is why math was never my thing! I still don't know how you convinced me to come.
Cause you are an amazing person and I bribed you with Ice-cream! Now back to the drawing board!
This is really bothering me, what could have gone wrong in my calcuation's?
