Stallions in the Spotlight

How fast do spheres change? That is the question seniors in the University of Findlay Calculus classes explored as they participated in several labs involving collecting data on changing sphere size and answering questions on how fast changes occurred. Students used their iPad technology and a ruler to collect data and record their findings. It was fantastic to see the students growing in their understanding of the new knowledge they gained this year studying Calculus 1 topics. Plus their laughter was contagious and fun to see!
