- Students write an exponential function that represents the amount of water in a tank after t seconds if the height of the water doubles every 10 seconds.
- Students discover Euler’s number e by numerically approaching the constant for which the height of water in a tank equals the rate of change of the height of the water in the tank.
- Students calculate the average rate of change of a function.
