I really do LOVE my school. Although there might be cons to every pro, one of the PROS of our crazy schedule is that if I wanted to create a class like, say, a **MATH PROJECTS** class, it can become a reality.

Figuring that I actually had *two* Calculus classes this year instead of one, I thought it would be fun if I could extract one new class out of those two Calc classes to do nothing but fun math projects for one entire mester. Long story short, it got approved!!

So far we have completed one project and are working on the second. Here is the line-up so far, in no real particular order:

- Egg Bungee (Linear modeling)
**completed* - M&M Catapult (Quadratic modeling)
**in progress* - Backpack weight guess vs actual (Statistical analysis)
**inserted after seeing write-up of Egg Bungee* - Hot Air Balloon (Volume vs. Surface Area/ Calculus)
- Anvil on Spring (Spring constant modeling/ Physics)
- Tetrahedron Kite (Volume vs Area/ Geometry)

SO FUN! I am more than excited for all of these projects and am still researching more. I really want to do one on forensics, like calculating the angles to blood spatter and such (too much Dexter probably). I can’t seem to find any lessons for it though. If you have an idea, please do share!

Actually, *any* project ideas that are loaded with math would be greatly appreciated! I will be sharing of some of these activities as they come along as well. =) Stay tuned~

Hi! i have to do project for my Multi-Variable Calculus Class.

And I really like the idea of hot air balloon and tetrahedron kite =)
