Design an experiment to model a leaky faucet and determine the amount of water wasted due to the leak. Middle schoolers graph and write an equation for a line of best fit. They use their derived equation to make predictions about the amount of water that whould be wasted from one leak over a long period of time or the amount wasted by serveral leaks during a specific time period.
Students practice the concept of graphing associated to a function with its derivative. They define the concepts of increasing and decreasing function behavior and explore graphical and symbolic designs to show why the derivative can be used as an indicator for the behavior.
Students investigate the capabilities of the TI-89 calculator. In this Calculus lesson, students explore the statistical, graphical and symbolic capabilities of the TI-89. Students investigate topics such as solving systems of equations, finding inverse functions, summations, parametrics and trigonometry.
