Optimization problems suitable for all levels of chemical engineering students are available. These problems do not require advanced mathematical techniques, since they can be solved using typical software used by students and practitioners. The method used to solve these problems forces students to understand the trends for the different terms comprising the objective function and how they combine to yield an optimum. The result is an understanding of the trade-off necessary for an optimum to exist.
