Be the Volume: A Classroom Activity to Visualize Volume Estimation
Mikhaylov, Jessica
PRIMUS, v21 n2 p175-182 2011
A hands-on activity can help multivariable calculus students visualize surfaces and understand volume estimation. This activity can be extended to include the concepts of Fubini's Theorem and the visualization of the curves resulting from cross-sections of the surface. This activity uses students as pillars and a sheet or tablecloth for the surface. (Contains 8 figures.)
