Calculus with Out-of-This-World Applications

Exploratory projects in Calculus with Early Transcendentals immerse students in challenging, real-world applications of course material.

Assign these projects as homework or small group assignments to stimulate discussion and collaboration among your class.

In light of the recent SpaceX launch to the International Space Station, consider assigning this project, in which velocity, acceleration, and Newton’s Law of Gravitation are used to calculate the value of the escape velocity for launched projectiles.
