Case Studies in Calculus
(The downloadable files are compressed in Aladdin's ".sit" format. If need be, consult
the instructions on how to get the free expander to unstuff them on a mac or a pc.)
This term we will develop three extended applications of
calculus. Called Case Studies in Calculus, or CSCs, they will present
three examples of using calculus to model realworld problems involving real
data. Torricelli's Law, Population Modeling, and Flood Watch each come in two parts, Part 1 and Part 2. These
are in the form of Maple worksheets. Part 2 contains the problem on which
students will be reporting and which we have used here to name the CSC. (Part 1 is general background on the calculus ideas that go into the modeling process represented by the problem we are going to explore.)
The CSC Reports are Word documents that must be
completed and turned in for grading. The grading key will be included below with
each report so that students can download it as well and see what we will be
looking for in the reports. You should also refer to the holistic evaluation guidelines that give the
overall standards that all written work must meet.
 "math3.m" Maple File You will need this file to use
many of the commands in the CSCs. You should already have installed it and its
companion Math3Help file when you installed the contents of the Maple
downloadfile at the beginning of the term. However, if the file "math3.m" is not
in the "lib" folder inside the Maple folder on your hard disk, or if the
worksheet "Math3Help.mws" is not in the Maple folder, you can download and
install them now.
