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?
