Choosing a Cell Phone Plan
Here is an activity that should catch the attention of your class! It focuses on the real-world problem of selecting the best cellular phone plan. This exercise would be especially good to use when introducing piecewise functions. Learners compare costs for various data plans, considering such features as unlimited talk and unlimited texts, to determine which plan is the most cost effective for different scenarios.

Neurons and the Nervous System
The highlight of this series is activitiy #4. Anatomy pupils examine slides of three unknown cells. With the function of the nervous system in mind, they consider the structure of each and try to guess which one is part of that system. In other activities, they examine the nervous system of earthworm and grasshopper specimens, or they study drawings of different animal nervous systems.

Proof: lim (sin x)/x
By looking the expression (sin x)/x that is not defined at the limit value of 0, Sal uses the squeeze theorem to show that the function can by bound between two other functions that are defined at limit value so the limit can indeed be found.

Limit Examples w/ brain malfunction on first prob (part 4)
Sal explores more complex limit problems including showing how to take the limit of an expression with a square root by using the conjugate and how to simplify trigonometric functions that are part of limit problems. Note: A mistake is made on the last step of first problem where multiplication should have been used instead of addition, resulting in the correct answer of 3/16.

Classifying Functions-Grade 11
Investigate non-linear functions based upon the characteristics of the function or the representation of the function. The functions are displayed in multiple formats including as graphs, symbols, words, and tables. Learners use written reflection scored on a rubric to assess understanding.

Drip, Drop, Drip, Drop
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.

The Fundamental Theorems of Calculus
Are your calculus pupils aware that they are standing on the shoulders of giants? This lesson provides a big picture view of the connection between differential and integral calculus and throws in a bit of history, as well. Note: The calculus controversy paper is not included but one can find a number of good resources on the Internet regarding the development of calculus and the role of Newton and Leibnez.
