Project: Real-World Application in Calculus I (related to sciences, technology, engineering, business, etc.)

1. Submit one real-world application and the complete solution that each requires concepts in Calculus I in order to solve.

2. The real-world application and its solution must be original (your own work) and/or cited if other work was adapted. You may not simply copy or modify an existing application and/or solution.

Note: Textbook word problems are NOT an acceptable applied project. However, some of the textbook word problems may serve to motivate you a real-world application as illustrated in another file: How to create an applied project.

3. Use APA style to cite any references (websites, books, journals, etc…) that are used to inspire your problems (and/or solutions).

4. Your grade for this project will be based on (a) originality, (b) accuracy of problem and its solution, (c) relevancy to current events, and (d) relevance and clear connection to concepts addressed in our Calculus I course.
