Balloon

Twelfth graders investigate rate of change.  In this calculus lesson, 12th graders use a balloon to observe the relationship between the rate its volume is changing and the rate at which points on its surface are getting closer together.  Students use the symbolic capacity of the TI-89 calculator to determine the exact rate of change.
