Your submission must be turned in on canvas by 5pm on Friday, February 22, 2019. This project is worth 20 points (4% of your final grade) in the calculation of your final grade. One point (0.2% of your final grade) is deducted for every 6 hours the project is late.

Your response to #1 will be graded on the clarity of your critique and its mathematical correctness. It should clearly identify the problem. Just numbers or equations will receive very little credit. Your response to #2 is graded in a similar way, and your responses may be combined.

Your response to #3 will be graded on the appropriateness of your source, the clarity of your citation, and the clarity of your description. Your response to #4 will be graded on the accuracy of your formula, and the quality of your explanation of how the formula is used and what it means.

Your response to #5 and #6 will be graded on the clarity of your presentation and its mathematical correctness. You'll need to give a mathematical formula, and make a table. The answer to #6 is definitely not a single number.
