## Treasure Hunt

## Reflection-

My experience during this project both as a team member and as an individual felt equally laid out. When I first started this project, I wasn’t quite sure where my ideas and duties stood. In a way, I felt I wasn’t exactly sure on what I should do, but throughout time, I came to understand what I should be doing, and it all eventually evened out. The different types of learning that was distributed in this project, was identifying how to make a line, and make equations that correctly fit that line, domain and range, and outside of math, we had to use Photoshop skills in order to make the map properly. Before starting this project, I learned how to make and solve equations only a little bit, and coming out of this project, I can say that I definitely feel more confident in making/solving equations. I also knew how to do Domain and Range, and ending with this project, I still feel that my skill level with the content is the same as when I first started.

## Content Skill-

Over the semester, I learned how to problem solve SOH-CAH-TOA in trigonometry, scale factor, shadow functions, distributive property, solving proportions, solving systems of equations, graphing, inequalities and similar angles. A topic I have mastered within this semester is how to find similar angles, and the different vocabulary that comes with that such as congruent. The activities that helped me learn was the starters we did in class, and shadows unit portfolio we did recently.

## Problem-solving skills-

A struggle that I had this semester was generalizing SOH-CAH-TOA, without using a calculator, and remembering what each symbol meant on a test. Key realization that helped me understand the process was the composition book and the notes I took in it from the starters we do at the beginning of class.

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Woo,

Good Afternoon, I am a student at Animas High School that recently was studying your problem dealing with cookies. While looking over this problem, I found that in order to maximize your profit, you would need to make 50 cookies with icing, and 75 plain cookies. When I applied the cookies to the constraints, I found that you will need space for 125 cookies that will take 15 hours to bake. In order to make the cookies, you will need 110 pounds of dough and 20 pounds of icing. I found this out by graphing the feasible region by maximum profit. I would like to thank you for allowing me to work on this problem, as it was very interesting in terms of finding the maximum profit.

Yours truly,

Megan Salazar

In this unit, we were to find the constraints that belonged to iced and plain cookies, while also finding how much dough, time and space we would need. We first approached this problem by graphing each constraint on a separate piece of paper that each held icing, dough, time and space, with iced on the y-axis and plain on the x-axis . When we were done graphing, we were to find the feasible region of each constraint, and make an equation for each of them that we also had to solve. Throughout this unit, I learned some new things such as how to eliminate from an equation, substitute and a bit more about graphing. I am more comfortable with graphing and eliminating from equations than I was before this unit.
