4434Calculus of the Dinner Table: Mathematical Modeling
https://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=407971
Calculus students are presented with a write-pair-share activity that initially involves the construction of a model based on direct variation and later involves the use of calculus as a means by which to analyze the model. Suitable for either Calculus I or Calculus II students. Note: This project has a sequel entitled Fundamental Theorem of Calculus: An Investigation (listed under Interactive Lectures) in which the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus is investigated via the constructed model.Tue, 29 Sep 2009 10:54:50 -0700Fundamental Theorem of Calculus: An Investigation
https://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=407974
Calculus students are presented with a write-pair-share activity that leads them to a practical understanding of the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. The activity involves analyzing a function that describes eating speed in a hypothetical dinner table experience. Suitable for either Calculus I or Calculus II students.Note: This project has a prequel entitled Calculus of the Dinner Table: Mathematical Modeling (listed under Interactive Lectures) in which students construct the mathematical model for the king's eating speed. This prequel provides an excellent and engaging prelude to this activity.Tue, 29 Sep 2009 10:56:49 -0700EXERCISING IN SPACE

'Students will identify a direct variation, solve linear equations, and create tables based on the exercise equipment provided for astronauts on long duration missions on the International Space Station (ISS) in order to maintain their fitness to perform mission objectives and to return to Earth without serious health complications. Students willidentify direct variation from ordered pairs by calculating the constant of variation;calculate slope from two points using the slope formula;determine independent and dependent variables;solve linear equations; andcreate tables.'Links are provided here for both the teacher's information and the students' information.Tue, 4 Nov 2014 17:58:00 -0800Effect of Coefficient of x on Parabola Vertex (b<0)
