Subject: New Examples of Growth in Calculus
My Calculus students are bored with every growth/decay problem involving an exponential function or being logistic. Does anyone have any ideas of naturally occuring growth/decay that might have a logarithmic model? trigonometric? We are trying to get some new REAL examples of functions that students would find interesting and realistic.
