Lineære funktioner a) Redegør for, hvordan forskriften for en lineær funktion ser ud i sin generelle form og hvad der kendetegner en sådan lineær funktion.
En funktion er en sammenhæng mellem to variable størrelser, x og y. En funktion beskriver hvordan en afhængig variable størrelse, som også kaldes y, varierer som en konsekvens af ændringer i en anden, såkaldt uafhængig variable størrelse, som også betegnes som x.
Sammenhængen mellem disse to variable kan betegnes med regneforskriften y = f(x).
Regneforskriften kan forklares således at der til en bestemt værdi af x kun én værdi af y.

b) Forklar, hvad de to tal a og b står for i den lineære funktion, og vis med grafiske eksempler, hvordan forskellige værdier af de to tal giver forskellige placeringer af funktionens graf.

A står for hældningskoefficienten det vil sige hvordan den lineære funktion hælder
B står for skæring i y asken.
F(x) = 2x+ 7
G(x)= 4x – 9
Se bilag

c) Forklar, hvordan man ud fra to kendte punkter på en graf for en lineær funktion kan bestemme en forskrift for funktionen. Det er vigtigt at du skriver formler og viser hvordan de kan bruges.
Forskriften for den lineære funktion y = ax + b, hvis graf går gennem punkterne (x1y1) og (x2y2), kan bestemmes ud fra følgene.

Hældningskoefficienten: a = y2-y1x2-x1
Skæring med y-aksen: b = y1 – a * x1

Eks. På bestemmelse af forskriften ud fra to punkter på grafen:
Den lineære graf går gennem punkterne (2,2) og (4,6). Vi kan beregne forskriften vha. overstående formler. Idet vi sætter x1 = 2; y1 = 2; x2 = 4; y2=6
A = 6-24-2= 2
B = 2-2*2=-2
Den lineære forskrift (y=ax+b) er derfor y = 2x – 2

d) Forklar om reglerne for at løse ligninger og uligheder.
Regler for løsninger af ligninger: 1. Man må reducere venstre og højre side hver for sig 2. Man må lægge samme tal til eller trække samme tal fra på begge sider af lighedstegnet 3. Man må gange/dividere med samme tal (dog ikke 0) på begge sider

Regler for løsning af uligheder:
Ovenstående regler gælder også for uligheder.
Samtidig gælder følgende regler: 1. Man må reducere venstre og højre side hver for sig 2. Man må lægge samme tal til eller trække samme tal fra på begge sider af ulighedstegnet, eller: man må flytte et led fra ene side af et ulighedstegn til den anden side, hvis man samtidig skifter fortegn 3. Man må gange eller dividere med samme positive tal på begge sider af et ulighedstegn 4. Man må gange eller dividere med negative tal på begge sider af et ulighedstegn, hvis man samtidig vender ulighedstegnet.

Opgaver 1. Løs følgende ligning: 2x-2=5-x
2x – 4 = 5 – x
2x = 9 – x
3x = 9
X = 93 2. Løs følgende ligning: 6x-2x-2-1=2x+126+4x+1
6x -2x + 4 – 1 = 2x + 3 + 2x + 1
4x + 3 = 4x + 4
4x = 4x + 1
4x – 4x = 1
X = 1

3. Løs følgende ulighed: 23x+2>-2(x-3)+4 23x + 2 > -2x + 6 + 4
23x > -2x + 8
23x + 2x > 8
223 x > 8

4. Bestem ved beregning løsning til de to ligninger med to ubekendte: 2x+3y=8 og 2x-4y=-6.
2x + 3y = 8
3y = 8 – 2x
Y = 83 + -2x3

2x – 4y = - 6
-4y = - 6 -2x
Y = -6-4 + -2x-4

83 + -2x3 = -6-4 + -2x-4
8*43*4 + -2x*43*4 = -6*-3-4*-3 + -2x*-3-4*-3
32 – 8x= 18 + 6x
-8x= -14 + 6x
-14x = -14
X = 1

Y = -6-4 + -2*1-4
Y = 1,5 + 0,5
Y = 2

5. Bestem ved beregningsmetoden forskriften for den lineære funktion, der er fastlagt ved følgende funktionsværdier f(-3) = -3 og f(6) = 0.
X1= - 3
Y1= - 3
X2= 6
Y2= 0

A = y2-y1x2-x1
A = 0+36+3
A = 39
A = 0,33

B = y1 – a * x1
B = -3 – 0,33*-3
B= -0,33

Y = ax + b
Y = 0,33x – 0,33

6. Bestem en forskrift for den lineære funktion, hvis graf går igennem punkterne (-4,-1) og (8, -4).
Se bilag
X1 = - 4
Y1 = -1
X2 = 8
Y2 = - 4

A = y2-y1x2-x1
A = -4-18-4
A = -54
A = -1,25

B = y1 – a * x1
B = -1 + 1,25 * -4
B = -6

Y = ax + b
Y = -1,25x - 6

7. Bestem skæringspunktet mellem graferne for funktionerne fx=-12x-2 og gx=x+1.
Se bilag.
Skæringspunktet = (-2,-1)

Anvendelse
Opgave 1
Lad prisen pr. kg for en bestemt vare være en funktion af afsætningen i kg. Afsætningen er givet ved forskriften fx=200-12x Antag endvidere, at prisen pr. kg som funktion af udbuddet i kg er givet ved gx=50+2x a) Tegn graferne for f og g i samme koordinatsystem.
(Se bilag, Lavet i geogebra) b) Bestem ligevægtsprisen, dvs. den pris, hvor udbud og afsætning er lige store. (altså skæringspunktet)
Skæringspunkt = (60,170)
Ligevægtsprisen er derfor 170 kr.

Opgave 2
Omkostningerne ved produktion af en pakke med 10 stk. vaffelis består dels af en fast omkostning på 10.000 kr. og dels en variabel omkostning på 25,50 kr. pr. pakke. Virksomheden sælger en pakke vaffelis til en fast pris på 38 kr.
Lad x betegne antallet af pakker med 10 stk. vaffelis. Lad f(x) være de samlede omkostninger og lad g(x) være den samlede omsætning i kr.

a) Bestem forskrifterne for f og g.
F(X) = 25,5x + 10.000
G(X) = 38x

b) Hvor mange pakker vaffelis skal virksomheden sælge for ikke at få underskud.

c) Tegn graferne for f og g i samme koordinatsystem og vis hvordan du kan aflæse svaret på spørgsmål b i koordinatsystemet.…...

Discrete Mathematics

...Introduction to Discrete Structures --- Whats and Whys What is Discrete Mathematics ?  Discrete mathematics is mathematics that deals with discrete objects. Discrete objects are those which are separated from (not connected to/distinct from) each other. Integers (aka whole numbers), rational numbers (ones that can be expressed as the quotient of two integers), automobiles, houses, people etc. are all discrete objects. On the other hand real numbers which include irrational as well as rational numbers are not discrete. As you know between any two different real numbers there is another real number different from either of them. So they are packed without any gaps and can not be separated from their immediate neighbors. In that sense they are not discrete. In this course we will be concerned with objects such as integers, propositions, sets, relations and functions, which are all discrete. We are going to learn concepts associated with them, their properties, and relationships among them among others.  Why Discrete Mathematics ?  Let us first see why we want to be interested in the formal/theoretical approaches in computer science.  Some of the major reasons that we adopt formal approaches are 1) we can handle infinity or large quantity and indefiniteness with them, and 2) results from formal approaches are reusable.  As an example, let us consider a simple problem of investment. Suppose that we invest $1,000 every year with expected return of 10% a year. How much...

...Math 479 Prof:Gonzales Reading and Respond to the History of Mathematics in a Large Nutshell This is the first time am reading something on mathematics and I find it very interested especially with the way mathematics came about. Tracing the age of mathematics seems to be very enlighten and it shows how little we know as to compare to how much the people in the ages knew. In this time we have so much of technology to help us out with problem solving but after reading this story on mathematics in a large nutshell made me understand how fortunate we are. It is very interesting to see and ready how people in the centuries used to solve problems and figure equations out on their own. According to the passage I will say that the people of the early times were way smart and intellectual than the people of today societies. This reason behind my saying most of the things that we learn easily today is based on the things they solve without the help of technology. I find so much of things interested in this reading that I do not know where to start and how to start explaining. It actually it helps to clear so much and it had so much of interesting fact that I learn at this moment. All this time I thought the Indians and Chinese was the ones that develop most of the mathematics skills. The reason for my assumption is that most of them are either engineers, and for being that they had to be very good with numbers. Now I get to understand that the Chinese were even around......

...How to Succeed in Mathematics: A Step-by-step Guide The First Day: 1. Go to class. 2. Get the names, e-mail, and phone numbers of at least 3 classmates whom you can call for information. 3. Get a copy of the syllabus. Read and understand it. 4. Find the instructor's office. This will save you time later on. 5. Find any tutoring or lab facilities that the instructor might mention. This will also save you time later. There is free tutoring in DH 143. 6. Ask about any policies of particular concern to you (attendance policies, late work, etc.). Do not ask questions which are answered in the syllabus. Every Day: 1. Go to class. Stay awake. 2. Make sure to sign or initial the attendance sheet if there is one. 3. Open you notebook. Write the date at the top of the page. Write the topic and sections to be discussed (e.g. Sec. 1.2: Graphs of Equations, and Sec. 1.3: Functions and Their Graphs). 4. Take good notes. This means: a. Your notes must be where you can find them. b. Your notes must be in good order and legible. c. Your notes should cover all the information that was covered in class. This means writing down everything the instructor wrote and almost everything she says. A great deal of important information may not be written.

...very cautious in using the word `paradigm' in the context of ongoing scientific change. As with `genius', mention should be circumspect: we know both through CCC 1092±7026/98/050365±08 $17.50 # 1998 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd. RESEARCH PAPER achievements. This applies especially in evolutionary theory. Although evolution draws abundantly from the `hard' sciences, its theoretical midsection is sufficiently vulnerable that such expressions as `new paradigm' might seem just a bit too legislative Ð perhaps a label for ideas that haven't quite measured up in the currency of scientific discourse. I confess that my use of paradigm in introducing this volume is as much legislative as substantive. Ever since Alfred Lotka (1922) began writing about energy flows as the basis of natural selection, there has been a thermodynamic paradigm in evolutionary theory that has coexisted with what we now loosely call neoDarwinism. Lotka observed that selection will favor those organisms that, in pulling resources into their own services, also increase the energy throughputs of their ecosystems. Cooperation is built into the thermodynamic picture. For any new program to prosper, it must show at a bare minimum that it can provide answers to questions unapproachable by previous theories, and give greater conceptual coherence to our dialogue with nature. Relativity and quantum theory both did this. Our paradigm does as well. But, although it has been steadily gaining force over the past two......

... CHAPTER ONE 1. INTRODUCTION The study of mathematics as a subject for both primary and post primary level of education and even in tertiary level of education has been made compulsory because the whole o four life is in mathematics, that why study of mathematics is compulsory by the curriculum planners for both primary and post primary level of education. This is so because of it broader application for all subject and learned in schools, particularly science and technology as well as in our daily life activities especially in the modern world. One of the needs of the Nigerian society which must be given priority today is the advancement of science and technology which is not possible without mathematics. Mathematics is a very important subject which is made compulsory from primary to post primary schools level of education. Since mathematics is an important subject our life, what does mathematics mean? The Academic American encyclopedia defined mathematics as the study of numbers, set of points, and various abstract elements, together with the relations between them and operations performed on them. Wikipedia defined mathematics as the abstract study of topics such as quantity (number) structure, space and change. Mathematic is a science subject that deals with the study of numbers, shapes, sizes and other relationships among the quantities. 1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY: mathematics is one of the most important and compulsory subjects to be......

...MATHEMATICS has played a significant role in the development of Indian culture for millennia. Mathematical ideas that originated in the Indian subcontinent have had a profound impact on the world. Swami Vivekananda said: ‘you know how many sciences had their origin in India. Mathematics began there. You are even today counting 1, 2, 3, etc. to zero, after Sanskrit figures, and you all know that algebra also originated in India.’ It is also a fitting time to review the contributions of Indian mathematicians from ancient times to the present, as in 2010, India will be hosting the International Congress of Mathematicians. This quadrennial meeting brings together mathematicians from around the world to discuss the most significant developments in the subject over the past four years and to get a sense of where the subject is heading in the next four. The idea of holding such a congress at regular intervals actually started at The Columbian Exhibition in Chicago in 1893. This exhibition had sessions to highlight the advancement of knowledge in different fields. One of these was a session on mathematics. Another, perhaps more familiar to readers of Prabuddha Bharata, was the famous Parliament of Religions in which Swami Vivekananda first made his public appearance in the West. Following the Chicago meeting, the first International Congress of Mathematicians took place in Zurich in 1897. It was at the next meeting at Paris in 1900 that Hilbert...

Topics in Calculus Fundamental theorem Limits of functions Continuity Mean value theorem [show]Differential calculus [show]Integral calculus [show]Vector calculus [show]Multivariable calculus Calculus (Latin, calculus, a small stone used for counting) is a branch of mathematics focused on limits,functions, derivatives, integrals, and infinite series. This subject constitutes a major part of modernmathematics education. It has two major branches,differential calculus and integral calculus, which are related by the fundamental theorem of calculus. Calculus is the study of change,[1] in the same way that geometry is the study of shape and algebra is the study of operations and their application to solving equations. A course in calculus is a gateway to other, more advanced courses in mathematics devoted to the study of functions and limits, broadly called mathematical analysis. Calculus has widespread applications in science,economics, and engineering and can solve many problems for which algebra alone is insufficient. Historically, calculus was called "the calculus of infinitesimals", or "infinitesimal calculus". More generally, calculus (plural calculi) refers to any method or system of calculation guided by the symbolic manipulation of expressions. Some examples of other well-known calculi are propositional......

Exponential & Logarithmic Function

...the functions we have studied have been polynomial or rational functions, with a few others involving roots of polynomial or rational functions. Functions that can be expressed in terms of addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and the taking of roots of variables and constants are called algebraic functions. In exponential & logarithmic functions we introduce and investigate the properties of exponential functions and Logarithmic functions. These functions are not algebraic; they belong to the class of transcendental functions. Exponential and logarithmic functions are used to model a variety of realworld phenomena: growth of populations of people, animals, and bacteria; radioactive decay; epidemics; absorption of light as it passes through air, water, or glass; magnitudes of sounds and earthquakes. We consider applications in these areas plus many more in the sections very important. As a part of our BBA course, we are required to submit a term paper for every subject each semester.

...4-1 Exponential Functions 1. What is the definition of an exponential function? Page 412 An exponential function f with base b is defined by f(x) = bx or y = bx, where b is a positive constant other than 1 (b > 0 and b is not equal to 1) and x is any real number. Example: g(x) = 10^x 2. What is the inverse of an exponential function? Page No horizontal line can be drawn that intersects the graph of an exponential function at more than one point. This means that the exponential function is one-to-one and has an inverse. Example: fx = b(x) Steps for solving problem: Replace: fx with y: y = b(x) Interchange x and y: x=b(y) Solve for y 3. What are the characteristics of an exponential function? Page 415 * The domain of f(x) = b^x consists of all real numbers. The range of F(x) = b^x consists of all positive real numbers (0, to infinity). * The graphs of all exponential functions of the form f(x) = b^x pass Through the point (0, 1) because f(0) = b^0 =1 (b not equal to 0) the y intercept is 1. There is no x intercept. * If b > 1, f(x) – b^x has a graph that goes up to the right and is an increasing function. The greater the value of b, the steeper the increase. * If 0 < b < 1, f (x) = b^x has a graph that goes down to the right and is a decreasing function.

Everyday Mathematics

...Everyday Mathematics Teaching Math to Young Children Spring 2010 Ashley Dismukes I feel that this quote from Richard Wertheimer defines mathematics as well as describes how the majority of people view the subject, “Mathematics, the science studied and practiced by mathematicians, is a language that quantifies the world around us. In its applied form, it is used by workers in most walks of life. Unfortunately, most people see mathematics as cold, abstract, difficult and beyond their reach” (Post Gazette, 2002). Due to these feelings educators, administrators, and researchers are constantly working to develop new and improved ways to teach students mathematics. As a result there are many theories and curriculum sets available; one being Everyday Mathematics. When one enters the teaching field they will become acutely aware of just how many curriculums are available to teach each subject. The school where you are employed will most likely have adopted a curriculum that they feel best suits their needs and the needs of their students. As a teacher it will be your responsibility to teach to and with the curriculum. Everyday Mathematics is a curriculum that is used across the country (Wright Group, 2010) with more than 3 million students. It is “a rigorous PreK-6 curriculum” (Wright Group, 2010) that is “scientifically research-based and proven to build students’ mathematical knowledge from the basics to higher-order thinking and critical problem solving” (Wright......
