## Write-Ups

**Write-up # 1.** This write-up is an examination
of Assignment 1 #3:

Find two linear functions **f(x)** and **g(x)** such that their product
**h(x) = f(x) · g(x)** is tangent to each of **f(x)** and **g(x)**
at two distinct points.

**Write-up #2. **

**Write-up #3.** This is an investigation
of points of concurrency of lines from the vertices of a triangle to certain
constructed points in similar figures on the opposite side of the triangle.

**Write-up #4.** This assignment was an
investigation of r = a + b cos(k t) for different values of a, b, and k.

**Write-up #5**
This is a write-up of Assignment 12 #6. For this exploration, I boiled
water and recorded temperatures each minute for the next 30 minutes as it
cooled. Then the spreadsheet was used to plot temperature against time and
a model was fit to the data.
