We are midway through a unit on inequalities. My favorite inequality related topic is Linear Programming. In class after spring break we will do this, an in class investigation using farm expenses as our subject matter. For more examples, see here.

In previous years, I'd call it a day after the "project" and move on to Radicals. Now I am committed to engaging my students more with assignments that will both get them to think and make for good posts to their digital portfolios. My idea is to have them write and solve their own linear programming problem in teams of 2. See my prompt for the assignment below. I welcome feedback. I am a little worried that I am not giving them enough to go in regards to researching and writing their problem.

I will report back with samples after they do the assignment.
