Measurement: Optimization


What is optimization? The process we use to have the best result.

We can use math to determine the maximum area of a certain rectangle, the minimum perimeter of a rectangle with a given area, or what happens to the volume of a cylinder when we increase and decrease the height.

We will also look into the applications of optimization in measurement and solve some problems. Prior knowledge and skills in finding the area and volume of different shapes will be required. You will need a pen, a pencil, and a calculator in order to solve the problems that will be presented.
