Sands of Time

Twelfth graders explore an application of integration.  In this Calculus lesson, 12th graders explore the length of the day where they live during the winter and summer solstice.  Students are provided with data relating to the solstices at various latitudes.  Students use the symbolic capacity of the TI-89 to find a regression equation and interpolate date from the equation using integration.
