## VIDEO: Algebra Applications: Rational Functions |
In this episode of Algebra Applications, students explore various scenarios that can be explained through the use of rational functions. Such disparate phenomena as submarines, photography, and the appearance of certain organisms can be explained through rational function models. |
Rational Expressions, Rational Functions and Equations | |

## VIDEO: Algebra Applications: Rational Functions, Segment 1: Submarines |
In spite of their massive size, submarines are precision instruments. A submarine must withstand large amounts of water pressure; otherwise, a serious breach can occur. Rational functions are used to study the relationship between water pressure and volume. Students graph rational functions to study the forces at work with a submarine. |
Rational Expressions, Rational Functions and Equations | |

## VIDEO: Algebra Applications: Rational Functions, Segment 2: Biology |
All living things take up a certain amount of space, and therefore have volume. They also have a certain amount of surface area. The ratio of surface area to volume, which is a rational function, reveals important information about the organism. Students look at different graphs of these functions for different organisms. |
Rational Expressions, Rational Functions and Equations | |

## VIDEO: Algebra Applications: Rational Functions, Segment 3: Hubble Telescope |
The Hubble Telescope has transformed how we view the universe. We learn about the lens formula and how it is used in the construction of telescopes. |
Rational Expressions, Rational Functions and Equations | |

## VIDEO: Algebra Nspirations: Rational Functions and Expressions |
After briefly reviewing the concept of inverse variation, this video explores Boyle’s law, a real world example of an inversely proportional relationship between pressure and volume of a gas. Written and hosted by internationally acclaimed math educator Dr. Monica Neagoy, it goes on to examine similarities and differences among rational functions and numbers. |
