Here is the next phase of the Calculus Pi day project. The students graphed piecewise functions to model their objects using TI Smartview and Geogebra. The next phase is to find the volume of the object!
This week in Calculus we did a mini-project where students had to take some function families and create a “function family tree” and present information about the different types of functions. This activity serves as a great review of the different functions that we will be seeing this year in Calculus. I had no idea how much work my students would have put into this, but I am very happy with the results! Check out our pics, and here is the rubric I used to grade the project.
