Can We Learn Calculus from a Jerk?
Kenyon, Paula L.; Bardzell, Michael J.
Primus, v11 n1 p97-110 Jun 2001
Summarizes an interdisciplinary undergraduate research project involving experimental physics and calculus and illustrates how mathematics was used to finesse incomplete experimental information and maximize physical quantity known as jerk. Describes how calculus can be applied in the "real world" where functions are not always given by nice formulas. (Author/ASK)
