Newton's Law of Cooling, Data Analysis, and Differential Equations

Students calculate the length of time to cool a hot drink. In this data analysis and differential equations lesson plan, students use a TI-89 or TI-92 calculator to find the length of time for a hot drink to cool to room temperature. Readings are taken regularly and a scatter plot of data is graphed.

I taught in the public schools for many years. When I moved to Japan and began teaching a large ESOL population, I found that I needed more resources and there just aren't "teacher stores" around. Lesson Planet has been a big help with supplemental material.
