Caren rides her bicycle along a straight road from home to school, starting at home at time t = 0 minutes and arriving at school at time = 12 minutes. During her ride ( 0 e t e 12 ), her velocity, v(t), in miles per minute, is modeled by the piecewise functiion above. Day 1 1. What is the area of the triangle formed by the t-axis, and 0 e t e 2 ? (Hint A !

1 bh ) 2

2. What is the slope of the line between 1 e t e 3 ? 3. What is the equation of the line between 1 e t e 3 ? ? Remember, you need the slope and a point to get the equation ( y  y1

Day 2 1. What is the area of the shaped formed by the t-axis, and 5 e t e 2 ?

2. f(t) represents the piecewise function above. What is f(1), f(3), f(6), and f(11)?

3. What are 2 x-intercepts between 1 e t e 4 ?

 

m( x  x1 )

There are 2 lines between 0 e t e 3 .Day 3 1. Which of these equations is the equation of the line between 5 e t e 6 y y = 3x -12 y y y y +6 = 2(x-3) y +7 . What is the range and domain of this piecewise function? 3. Solve the system of equations from # 2 for today. What are the equations of the 2 lines in # 1 for today. 3. Where on the piecewise function does the slope = 0? 2. What is the solution of those 2 lines? (Remember how to solve a system of equations graphically?) 2.x = 2x + -8 2y x = 2x+7 . These 2 equations are a system of equations. (Use substitution or Elimination methods) Day 4 1.
