Closed Captioned 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.
