Modelling the landing of a plane in a calculus lab Article uri icon


  • We exhibit a simple model of a plane landing that involves only basic concepts of differential calculus, so it is suitable for a first-year calculus lab. We use the computer algebra system Maxima and the interactive geometry software GeoGebra to do the computations and graphics. © 2012 Copyright Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.
