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.

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

Wile E. Coyote  Modeling with Quadratic Functions (Writing project)This is a creative writing project (dealing with Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner) dealing with modeling falling bodies with quadratics and solving quadratic equations. An optional aspect is to have students estimate the instantaneous rate of change.
