Imagine Yourself in This Calculus Classroom

Luajean Bryan 

February 2007, Volume 100, Issue 6, Page 394

Abstract:
The efforts to attract students to precalculus, trigonometry, and calculus classes became more successful when projects-based classes were offered. Data collection from an untethered hot air balloon flight for calculus students was planned to maximize enrollment. The data were analyzed numerically, graphically, and algebraically. The project made calculus more meaningful and memorable for students.
