Title: Cardiac Output, Rates of Change and Accumulation: Unit Overview
Url: http://illuminations.nctm.org/unit.aspx?id=6085
Publisher: Illuminations: Resources for Teaching Mathematics
National Council of Teachers of Mathematics
Description: Created by Illuminations: Resources for Teaching Mathematics, this unit plan contains four lessons that explore rates of change and accumulation in the context of the amount of blood being pumped by the heart. The measurement is done from a discrete perspective, but can be easily generalized to a continuous perspective that includes use of integral calculus. The individual lessons are titled: make a conjecture, gather data, analyze the data and reflecting on your work. The author states the goal of this lesson as: "[The] rich exploration of rates of change and accumulation in context."
