Today was the first day of the AP Calculus AB projects. Here are the 5 presentations from Day 1. More to come tomorrow.
Cube octahedron Butterfly
This student gave a verbal presentation on the origins of Origami. She showed us various ones she had made, including the 2 above. She described what made up the cube octahedron and other various pieces she had made. She then demonstrated how to make another piece fold by fold.
Another one by hand
Presentation: Math and String Art
Math in Rainbows
Video explaining their project and how rainbows are made here.
Video of them creating rainbows here.
How to Solve a Rubik’s Cube
This student had zero experience with a Rubik’s Cube and decided to figure out the algorithm to solve a Rubik’s cube. After she learned the algorithms she recorded herself solving it and showed us every single algorithm. She then put together a nice video explaining it here: https://vimeo.com/130179285

Coke Bottle Revolution
Desmos to model the shape of the bottle.
The actual volume was 355mL so this group calculated a 3.45% error.
Presentation: Solids of Revolution ft. Coke
Inspired by Dan Anderson (2 doors down, always nice.) Some good math “art”
Open Processing Loops (Non-interactive)
