2. Students Use 3D Printing to Verify the Flow Rate of a 3D Object Using Differentiation

The Draining Tank Problem Standard (From the California State Calculus Standards): 4.0 Students demonstrate an understanding of the formal definition of the derivative of a function at a point and the notion of differentiability 9.0 Students use differentiation to sketch, by hand, graphs of functions. They can identify maxima, minima, inflection points, and intervals in which the […]
