Wile E. Coyote  Modeling with Trigonometric Functions (Writing project)This project requires students to mathematically model the design of a roller coaster using a sinusoidal function to estimate the total cost of construction. *If an instructor would like a student solution just contact one of the authors.

Is the Sine a Circular Function? How about a Star Sine?Students are often challenged by seeing the conncection between the unit circle and the graph of the sine and cosine functions. This activity is designed to take students out of their comfort zone to experience what the "sine" function would look like if it were based upon other geometric figures.

Paperfolding  Exponential Growth/Percentage ChangeIn this activity students are posed a simple question, "How tall will a paper be if it is folded 50 times?" and it is used as a fun way to introduce them to the concepts of growth factors, and percentage change.

Rule Time: Salute to Sports!The purpose of this module is to help students learn important applied mathematical concepts regarding exponential and logistic functions. Students will also learn how to graph and interpret exponential (and logistic, if desired) functions. The unique element of this lesson is the use of video to generate interest in the students and motivate the content through interactive technology, humor, and cooperative learning. Students are encouraged to work together and help each other “make sense” of the activities. You will need these video clips: Part 1  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xUavijWEwaQ Part 2 (after the problem situation is resolved)  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GfGj7Ik7Zao

Rule Time: Salute to BrakesThis project involves a movie that was written by, directed by, and starring Scott Adamson and Trey Cox. The focus of the project is making sense of the idea of quadratic functions from a rate of change perspective. First, watch Part 1 with your class. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b2huVGJXnH8 Then watch Part 2 after the problem has been resolved. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KStlLsmURcw
