Product Description
Engaging fun project for Calculus using techniques from Volume of Revolution. Great for Volume Unit or Save for End of Year and after AP Exams.

Your students have been unwittingly captured by aliens from the planet Relssek, and in order to be set free must find the volume of the Queen’s favorite mug. In order to solve the problem they will use their prior Algebra knowledge plus Calculus to determine its volume (disk method), not just in units, but in liters, and fluid ounces.

My students love this problem and it is great to see them work in teams. Lots of fun and great use of their math and calculator skills.

The resource includes the problem itself, a response sheet for the group, a graphing calculator handout, and 4:1 graph paper. I have also included a step by step illustrated detailed solution packet for you which can be shown to the students after their projects are turned in.

Use this while studying Volume of Revolution or use after the AP Exam as a great end of year project. Either way it will be a big hit, engaging and NO PREP FOR YOU. Just Print and Go!
