Ainsley`s school honors outstanding mathematics students at the end of their high school careers with the Mathematics Excellence Award. To earn this award, a student must achieve at least a 90% average in the mathematics sequence, which includes Geometry, Algebra II, Trigonometry, Precalculus, and Calculus. Trigonometry, which is a halfyear course taken concurrently with the second half of Algebra II or the first half of Precalculus (or during the summer), counts for 10% of the award. The other courses are weighted, starting with 15% for Geometry, with a 5 percentage point increase in weight for each fullyear course. Ainsley has earned 80%, 98%, and 85%, respectively, in the first three courses in the sequence. What is the maximum difference in scores she can earn in the remaining two courses and still receive the Mathematics Excellence Award? Extra: Ainsley`s experienced friends say that Precalculus averages five hours of homework per week while Calculus averages eight hours a week. How might this affect Ainsley`s plan? What advice would you offer?
