Motion of a Bouncing Ball
Twelfth graders complete a unit of lessons on derivatives as they are applied to motion. They observe and discuss demonstrations, conduct an experiment involving a motion sensor, graph and analyze the results, and summarize their findings.

Stochastic and Deterministic Modeling
Explore the difference between stochastic and deterministic modeling through programming. First have the class write algorithms for relatively simple tasks using pseudocode. Use the Python 2.7 program app to simulate Mendel's Pea Pod...

Exploration Sequence of Bounces
New skills are developed as high schoolers use graphing calculators and ranger technology to capture and graph the sequence of bounces a ball makes when dropped. After recording the height of four or more bounces, they use the collected...

Is Our Climate Headed for a Mathematical Tipping Point?
Raising the global temperature by two degrees may not seem like much, but the impact this would have on the planet is amazing. Follow along with this short video as it examines how even a small change to a system can turn its regular,...
