## Surface Area and Volume Calculator

I am a huge proponent of application when application is possible. I realize sometimes application is not possible at the level you are teaching. For example, my senior son was working on Calculus the other day and had to recall the exponent rules from Algebra 1 (8th grade for him). He hasn't needed to use… Continue reading Surface Area and Volume Calculator

Surface area application can be found here. In this post I have included volume application problems and application for surface area… Continue reading Volume and Spheres Application

One page is many different problems that you could use as an assignment, assessment, or problem of the day. The second one is one problem broken up into 5 days,… Continue reading Application for Surface Area

I taught students how to use Google cards to find the area of common shapes. A quick search will pull up the following card… Continue reading Application for Area

I created the instructional slide below to facilitate the process with my students. Students had to select an object in the classroom to enlarge or reduce.… Continue reading Honey, I Shrunk the Classroom

I used to have a Far Side by Gary Larson desk calendar and each year I would keep… Continue reading Far Side Expansion

## Student Created Trig Word Problems

For the last 9 years, I've had students do a Trig project where they use handmade clinometers to measure the height of an object taller than they are. I love this project because it shows the application of Trig and guides students through a thought process to solve this type of problem. This year I… Continue reading Student Created Trig Word Problems
