A look at a project in an AP Calculus class at the culmination of of the volume unit. Students will take everyday objects and find the volume using calculus formulas and regressions from statistics while comparing to science content.

## Collection Contents

### Project Planning Worksheet

by Erin Daniels

At the beginning of the project, this worksheet can be handed to students to help them think about the process and supplies that will be needed. It is an organizational tool and a learning tool to have students help come up with the goal of the project.

### Project Table for Testing Lines of Best Fit

by Erin Daniels

Using the regression capabilities on a graphing calculator, students will take the coordinate points from their graph and try different regressions to see which has the best r-value for each section of their graph. These lines of best fit will be the ones used for the calculus volume formulas next.

### Calculating Volume Using Disk Method

by Erin Daniels

With this worksheet, students will take their lines of best fit for each section of the graph and create the appropriate integrals using calculus techniques. The formulas will then provide the approximate volume  of each section.
