32- Go with the Flow: Describing Storm Water Runoff Using Derivatives

Thursday, April 14, 2011: 8:00 AM-9:00 AM
Grand Ballroom VIII (JW Marriott)
Lead Speaker:
Brad Hunt
Sara Garrison

Interested in hands-on, cooperative learning lessons for calculus? In this lesson, developed with the University of Cincinnati, students discover how engineers use derivatives to solve real-world problems by measuring storm water runoff volume. Attendees will use derivative graphs to discover differences in rates of change of water runoff.
