Content Area: Calculus Grade Level: 11th/12th
CA Content Standard(s)/Common Core Standard(s):
California Calculus Standards:
13.0 Students know the definition of the definite integral by using Riemann sums. They use this definition to
approximate integrals.
14.0 Students apply the definition of the integral to model problems in physics, economics, and so forth, obtaining
results in terms of integrals.
16.0 Students use definite integrals in problems involving area, velocity, acceleration, volume of a solid, area of a
surface of revolution, length of a curve, and work.
17.0 Students compute, by hand, the integrals of a wide variety of functions by using techniques of integration, such
as substitution, integration by parts, and trigonometric substitution. They can also combine these techniques when
Big Ideas/Unit Goals:
Apply mathematical techniques on real world scenario
Execution calculus techniques by and with software
How else can these integration techniques be used in real world applications.
Unit Summary:
In This unit plan, you will apply learned techniques of integration as antiderivatives and improve upon them with a new skill. This skill is
integration of revolution, in which a curve on a 2-D plane is rotated about an axis or line to generate a 3-D volume. By learning this new
technique, we will be able to understand how more complex levels of mathematics are applied in everyday scenarios. One such scenario we will
investigate is the shape of sports balls, such as tennis balls, soccer balls, or football. This investigation will lead us to why shapes of sports balls
are designed as they are and in conclusion this unit plan will act as an entry to the relationship between calculus and physics.
Assessment Plan:
