Students calculate arc length of functions and surface area as functions are rotated around the x and y axis.
The purpose of this activity is for students to practice calculations involving arc length of functions, including the use of the inbuilt 'arclength' command. The activity also includes surface area of functions rotated around the x and y axis.
- Arc Length
- Summing Intervals
- Surface Area
- Parametric form
- Vector equations
