Imaginative paper proposals for SingleVariable and Multivariable Calculus courses cover subjects from "Confusion in Beverly Hills" (geometry, trigonometry) to "The XFiles Makes Me So Angry" (optimization of a function of two variables)  and many more. Students work in groups of two or three on each project and turn in a joint paper approximately a week and a half after the project is assigned.
