Calculus Volume of Revolution Project May 2017

A while ago (2 years? 3?) I did a lantern volumes of revolution project after the AP Calculus AB exam. I liked it, but I wanted to do something different this year. I have come up with the following (rough draft!) project to do with my students. I will try it out after the exam this week. Good Luck to us all!

They will be creating a 1/2 revolved item and mounting it on a sheet. Then they will brainstorm about what it looks like: a ballgown? a bell? something else? Then they will be researching tidbits about that object to display, along with their volume calculations.

Here is a rough idea of my vision of the project:

 Here is a link to the file. I've gone all high tech and included links to videos.

  2. This sounds like a great idea! I will be a first year teacher teaching AP Calculus AB next year and I've been trying to find cool activities to do with my class. I would love to know any tips or tricks you have to make the course interesting. Do you do a lot of projects with this class?

  3. Calculus is considered as investigation of progress that for the most part concentrate on gathering and rate of progress. Math is essentially separated into two specific classes – Integral Calculus and Differential Calculus. Online Classes are intended to taken on time and on the off chance that you can't do it then it implies it is possible that you will get short-participation or abandoned in the course. Is it accurate to say that you are seeking to pay somebody to take my online calculus class for me? At that point your inquiry is over; you can pay 'Online Class master. We will take your tests and tests for your sake from beginning to end. We helped a great many understudies in fruitful route in finishing their online Calculus class.
