in Real Life Polynomial Functions Roller Coasters Roller coasters are modeled using polynomial

functions, specifically this one: Medical Dosage To calculate the concentration, c, in parts per

million of a certain drug in the bloodstream

after t hours, we use this equation: Motion of Particle Under

Influence of Gravity To find the motion of a particle under the

influence of gravity, this equation is used: Weight of a Patient The weight, w, of a sick patient can be

modeled with this equation: Polynomial Regression Polynomial regression in statistics is found

with the following formula: If we fill in the values, we get this graph: That looks like a roller coaster, doesn't it? Abhimanyu Deora x0 = initial position

v0 = initial velocity

a = acceleration due to gravity

t = time n= number of weeks since

patient became ill Polynomial regression is "a form of linear regression in which the relationship between the independent variable x and the dependent variable y is modelled as an nth order polynomial."
