Seeing around a Ball: Complex, Technology-Based Problems in Calculus with Applications in Science and Engineering-Redux
Winkel, Brian
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, v39 n2 p253-263 Mar 2008
A complex technology-based problem in visualization and computation for students in calculus is presented. Strategies are shown for its solution and the opportunities for students to put together sequences of concepts and skills to build for success are highlighted. The problem itself involves placing an object under water in order to actually see more of the object due to the refraction of light. (Contains 9 figures.)
