**Topic 1 Discussion 1**

In
Chapter 1 of the text (1-13) you will look at calculating a monthly payment for
a loan. A simpler problem is to compute
the amount a loan would cost you in one month.

Using
information from an internet source, determine the current interest rate a
credit card or loan. Suppose you borrow $1000 (or spend $1000) on a credit
card. How much will you owe in one month? 6 months if you pay nothing for 6
months?

Compute
the 6-month cost in two ways:

1. Make 6 monthly computations. Enter these
as formulas in a spreadsheet. (The goal here is really getting you to use
spreadsheets and formulas for computations.)

2. Use the formula, A= 1000(1 + r) N where N
= the number of periods (6) and r = the periodic interest rate = APR/12, where
APR is the annual percentage rate.

**Topic 2 Discussion1**

Go
to https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/geos/xx.html,
choose a country, and find the following rates:
Birth, Death, and Net Immigration for the most current year. Use the rates and the current population to
find the number of each category expected for that year - use ratio tables and
be sure to attach them to your answer.

**Topic 2 Discussion 2**

Suppose
you have a class where you have four quizzes each worth 15% of the grade and
two exams each worth 20%. If you make
77% on two quizzes, 100% on one, and 86% on the fourth along with 98% on one
exam and 66% on the other. What is the
weighted average?

Answer

This
assignment uses a scoring guide. Review the scoring guide on the last tab of
the spreadsheet prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the
expectations for successful completion.

**Topic 3 Discussion 1**

Choose
one country that you might like to visit. Select a duration for your trip
between two and six weeks, and then choose a number of participants between 5
and 10 people. Suppose one goal of your group is to speak to every adult
citizen in the country. How many citizens must each missionary need to talk to
per day, per hour, and per second to speak to every adult citizen in that
country? Is that goal reasonable?

**Topic 3 Discussion 2**

According
to the National Center for Health Statistics, the mean height of an American
male is 69.3 inches and the mean height of an American female is 63.8 inches.
The standard deviation for both genders is 2.7 inches.

According
to Chebyshev’s Theorem 75% of the data for your gender lies between what two
heights?

If
height is assumed to be normal, what percentage of the data lies between those
same two heights?

Look
in the Guided Worksheets on page 49 for more information.

**Topic 4 Discussion 1**

What
is percent? Write your height in inches. Suppose it increases by 15%, what
would your new height be? Now suppose
your height decreases by 15% what is your new height?

**Topic 4 Discussion 2**

Many
students take online courses because they are more convenient for their
schedules. What are some of the tradeoffs for taking an online course in a subject
such as math? What tools are you using to overcome these challenges?

**Topic 5 Disussion1**

Select one of the options below and create a linear equation to represent the monthly bill. When will the plans cost the same? Explain when each plan is a better option.

Option
1: Plan A $39.99 for 200 min and $1.25 for each min after. Plan B $29.99 for 200 min and $1.50 for each
min after.

Option
2: Plan A $25.75 plus $.75 per min. Plan
B $20.99 plus $1.00 per min

Option
3: Plan A $39.99 plus $1.25 per min.
Plan B $25.99 plus $1.75 per min

Option
4: Plan A $45.99 for 400 min and $.50 for each min after. Plan B $49.99 for 400 min and $.40 for each
min after

**Topic 5 Discussion 2**

In
Chapter 1 of the text, we looked at calculating a monthly payment for a
loan. A related formula is to calculate
the amount accruing when regular payments are made into an interest-bearing
account - often called the Savings Plan formula.

(A
is the accrued amount after t years of making regular payments, PMT, into an
account at the interest rate, r%, compounded times each year.)

A(t) =
PMT·((1 + r/N)N·t - 1)/(r/N)

= PMT*((1 + r/N)^(N*t) -
1)/(r/N)

The
second version is essentially in the form used in Excel

Suppose
you want to buy a car and have decided that you can save $100 a month. Using information from an internet source,
determine the current interest rate on savings accounts and use the information
to answer the following:

How much money will you have saved in a
year’s time?

How much will be interest?

Why wouldn’t a linear model work here?

**Topic 6 Discussion 1**

Use
the digits of your birthday as the amount of your initial investment (i.e.,
6/25 is $625), calculate the value of this investment after 10 years at 3.5%
APR for interest compounded yearly, quarterly, monthly, and daily. What do you
notice?
