A Mathematical Solution to the Motorway Problem
Michaelson, Matthew T.
Australian Senior Mathematics Journal, v23 n2 p30-34 2009
This article presents a mathematical solution to a motorway problem. The motorway problem is an excellent application in optimisation. As it integrates the concepts of trigonometric functions and differentiation, the motorway problem can be used quite effectively as the basis for an assessment tool in senior secondary mathematics subjects. (Contains 6 figures.)
