Assignments and Methods of Evaluating Student Progress:

1. Typical Assignments
   a. Engine failure forced Geraldine to pilot her Cessna 150 to an emergency landing. To land,
       Geraldine’s plane glided 17,000 ft over a 15,000-ft stretch of deserted highway. From what altitude
       did the descent begin?
   b. Angel has 18 m of molding from which he needs to make a rectangular frame. Because of the
       dimensions of the mirror being framed, the frame must be twice as long as it is wide. What should
       the dimensions of the frame be?

2. Methods of Evaluating Student Progress
   a. Attendance
   b. In-class assignments
