Your response to #1 will be graded on the clarity of your critique and its mathematical correctness. It should clearly identify the problem. It may be combined with your answer to #2, which is graded similarly.

Your response to #3 and #4 will be graded on the appropriateness of your source, the clarity of your citation, and the clarity of your description of how changing one variable affects the changing nature of the situation.

Your response to #5 and #6 will be graded on the clarity of your presentation and its mathematical correctness. You'll need to use algebra again, but also present the information in a way that can be easily understood by a broad audience.
