**Question description**

Discussion Question 1 **Real World Example**

Present an example and discussion of a Real World application of the

material presented in Chapter 1 of the text.

See if you can relate some of the things we

have learned so far to things we encounter in our daily lives. The examples do

not have to be real complicated.

The

examples should be based on something that relates to the algebraic concepts we

have studied this week. For instance we learned about negative and positive

numbers. Can you think of some everyday things that relate to positive and

negative numbers?

We also

talked a lot about fractions. Can you think of everyday things you do at home

or at work involving fractions? Present them as examples.

That's

it--just some simple real-world examples of things we deal with involving

algebra. I'm sure you'll be able to come up with quite a few.

The text

itself contains many real world examples and is a good source of ideas for this

exercise.
