Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

And how do they come up with those overall MPG averages for vehicles? Why is there a move afoot to require car manufacturers to post on the new car sticker a measure such as gallons per thousand miles? These and other questions will be investigated in this session which uses mathematics accessible at the first and second year algebra level.
