We are working on final projects all week in Calculus. Kids have split up into groups and are working hard. Even when I give them a million options to do, I love that they want to do something that is their own. I have really creative students this year who have some great ideas. So every day this week I'm going to profile a cool final project idea.
The first: Dawn of the Living Calculus! Two students sent out a link to WordPress page where it tells the visitor that they've been infected. Then there are instructions to send that to 3 more people. They are going to track the infection spreading by looking at the WordPress stats. Tomorrow, I'm going to see if they can try to make a predictive model based on a day of growth. I'm curious to see where this one goes!
