|Determine the volume of the vase pictured. The photograph shows the construction of the vase and that its height is 50 cm. Use the applet to find the coordinate values for the edge of the vase, and use the regression features of a graphing calculator to find a function that models the edge of the vase. This workshop was supported by the National Science Foundation through a grant to Duke University for the PostCALC Project and by the The United States Military Academy.|
