STEMbite: The Calculus of Building Blocks

Curated and Reviewed by Lesson Planet

Watch this video with your junior engineers or your higher-level mathematicians. In it, Drew builds half of an arch bridge with building blocks. There happens to be a magnetic board behind the blocks, on which he affixes a magnet for each block. When the blocks are removed, what appears to be a graph of an integral function, a natural logarithm, is left behind. Really revealing!
