Day 131 – Final Project Intro and continuing the Drawing Project
Today, I introduced our final project in Calculus. Students can do whatever they want as long as they are investigating and interesting question with mathematics! This year, my students are uber creative and really enthusiastic, so they proposed some great, great ideas. One student is going to investigate the Calculus of Frodo's expedition to Mordor. One group is going to stage a fake CSI murder. One group is going to track data about the nurses office at school to make a model for how often people visit. Great stuff!
The integration drawing projects are starting to come in too… Here is my current favorite.
(Whenever I forget that the creatures in front of me are not yet adults, they do stuff like choose Disney characters for projects. The best.)
