1. Solve
a. e^.05t = 1600
0.05t = ln(1600)
0.05t = 7.378
t = 7.378/.05
t = 147.56

b. ln(4x)=3
4x = e^3
x = e^3/4
x = 5.02

c. log2(8 – 6x) = 5
8-6x = 2^5
8-6x = 32
6x = 8-32
x = -24/6
x = -4

d. 4 + 5e-x = 0
5e^(-x) = -4
e^(-x) = -4/5
no solution, e cannot have a negative answer

2. Describe the transformations on the following graph of f (x) log( x) . State the placement of the vertical asymptote and x-intercept after the transformation. For example, vertical shift up 2 or reflected about the x-axis are descriptions.

a. g(x) = log( x + 5)
horizontal left shift 5
Vertical asymptote x = -5
x-intercept: (-4, 0)

b. g(x)=log(-x)
over the x-axis
vertical asymptote x=0
no x-intercept

3. Students in an English class took a final exam. They took equivalent forms of the exam at monthly intervals thereafter. The average score S(t), in percent, after t months was found to be given by S(t) = 68 - 20 log (t + 1), t ≥ 0.

a. What was the average score when they initially took the test, t = 0? Round your answer to a whole percent, if necessary. S(0)=68-20xlog(0+1) =
68-20x0
= 68%

b. What was the average score after 4 months? after 24 months? Round your answers to two decimal places.
-S(4) = 68-20xlog(4+1)
68-20x0.699
68-13.98
=54.02
-S(24) = 68-20xlog(24+1) = 40.04
68-20x1.398
68-27.96
=40.04

c. After what time t was the average score 50%?
Round your answers to two decimal places.
50 = 68 - 20 log (t + 1)
20log(t+1) = 68-50
log(t+1) = 18/20
t+1 = 10^(18/20) = 7.9433
t = 7.9433-1 = 6.94

4. The formula for calculating the amount of money returned for an initial deposit into a bank account or CD (certificate of deposit) is given by A=P(1+r/n)^nt A is the amount of the return.
P is the principal amount initially deposited.
r is the annual interest rate (expressed as a decimal).
n is the number of compound periods in one year.
t is the number of years.

Introduction
Various problems are now being experienced by our country and there are a lot of things that brought changes to our lives. Socio-economic problems, bureaucratic problems, and the biggest problem faced by our country, financial problem, are greatly affected by global economic crisis. As students, we are hoping that someday we will be the one to bring hope to this country, don’t be one of the burdens to it and help it progress and attain its ultimate success, and the beginning of that vision would start with the right choice of college course. With that proper choice of course, we will be able to develop and improve our God given talents and apply our knowledge and intelligence to it, though it is a free of cost opportunity to select and pick a course, this is not an easy task for it requires a lot of analysis of the course and decision-making. During the period of our childhood, we always have reveries of what...

Identifying Barriers Experienced by Human Service Clients

Professor Bill Eady
Problems Facing Human Services Clients
Human service professionals have a very rewarding career. They are given the opportunity in more ways than one to provide help to those who are in need of it. While this profession can be rewarding, unfortunately, this area of expertise can be emotionally exhausting because of the many problems that the human service clients face and the lack of resources that are available to them. These problems include, but are not limited to, economic inequality, poverty, child welfare as well as social problems.
While these problems are evident daily, human service professionals are trained to notice the oppression and social injustice and to develop solutions to the problems so they will not continue to persist in the future (France, 2005). For example, human service professionals are more aware of the common denominator or factor that is present among a family living in poverty, an incarcerated individual and a person living with a disability. The single factor that is common from this example would be a lack of resources due to their social identities. While it is the goal of human service professionals to promote social equality for all, unfortunately, living in today’s society, this is...

Math Curse By: Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith
Math Curse, written by Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith, takes us on a journey with a small child who is cursed by math. His teacher’s name is Mrs. Fibonacci, who was a well know mathematician who connected a mathematical sequence found in nature. Of course Mrs. Fibonacci told her class and this child how easily math can be seen in the outside world. Our main character goes on amath rampage that drives him crazy. Scieszka and Smith do a great job a combining mathematical concepts as well as rhymes and brain games. The book is continuously rhyming accompanied by humorous art work that gives the story a kind of flow. Want a little bit of a challenge? Try answering a number of math questions asked throughout the book. The math used consisted mainly of patterns if not basic math of a 3rd grader. Fractions were mentioned but as any 3rd grader would be our main character was terrified of them. So much so that he may have considered answering the question in French instead of math.
Overall the book seemed good for the target audience. There was appealing art work on each page, as well as rhymes. The Rhyming scheme made a big difference because it made the story have a sense of flow. Our authors also made the story interesting for an older more sophisticated audience with the introduction of Ms. Fibonacci who...

...Article Review 1
DeGeorge, B., Santoro, A. (2004). “Manipulatives: A Hands-On Approach to Math.” Principal, 84 (2), (28-28).
This article speaks about the importance and significance of the use of manipulatives in the classroom, specifically in the subject of math. Manipulatives have proven to be valuable when used in a math class and are even more valuable to the children when they are young, and are learning new math concepts. Students are able to physically visualize the math concepts and gain knowledge because they understand what they’re learning a whole lot better and they also are able to gain insights on those concepts. Different examples of manipulatives may include counting with beans or M&M’s, using pattern blocks, puzzles, tangrams, and flash cards, just to name a few.
Using manipulatives in a math class are beneficial to both the student and the teacher because the teacher is able to explain the concepts to the students in a much easier manner using the hands-on technique, rather than explaining it verbally. It’s especially beneficial to the student because by incorporating these manipulatives into their learning process, they are able to pick up the concepts much quicker and in a way that they better understand, yet are having fun while doing it. When they have the concepts down, the students’ self-esteem goes up and they feel encouraged to keep on going.
