# Interactive video lesson plan for: Optimization Calculus - Fence Problems, Cylinder, Volume of Box, Minimum Distance & Norman Window

#### Activity overview:

This calculus video tutorial explains how to solve optimization problems such as the fence problem along the river, fence problem with cost, cylinder problem, volume of a box, minimum distance between two points, and the norman window problem. This video contains plenty of examples and practice problems. It's useful for high schools taking ap calculus or college students taking calculus 1.

Here is a list of topics:
1. Optimization Word Problems - Technique - Maximum and Minimum Values
2. First Derivative and Critical Numbers - Horizontal Tangents
3. Constraint Equation vs Objective Function
4. Sum and Product of Two Numbers
5. Area and Perimeter Problems
6. Fence Problem - Rectangular Field of Area Along River - Maximizing Area
7. Fence Problem With 4 Pens
8. Minimizing Cost of a material
9. Volume of a box problem - Square Base and Open Top
10. Surface Area of Box Problem
11. Cardboard Box Problem - Cutting Square Corners to Make a Rectangular Box - Maximum Volume
12. Cylinder / Cylindrical Can Problem - Minimize Cost of Metal - Surface Area and Volume - Radius, Height, Circumference, & Circular Area
13. Cylinder Problem - Volume of Prism & Surface Area - Area of Base Plus Lateral Area
13. Fence Problem - Minimizing Cost - Wooden Fence vs Metal Fence
14. Minimum Distance Between a Point on the line and the origin - Distance Formula & Pythagorean Theorem
15. Derivatives - Product Rule, Power Rule, and Chain Rule
16. Minimizing Distance Between a Point and a point on the line
17. Norman Window Problem - Semicircle and Rectangle

Tried out the canvas response option on @SpiralEducation & it's so awesome! Add text or drawings AND annotate an image! #R10tech

Using @SpiralEducation in class for math review. Student approved! Thumbs up! Thanks.

@ordmiss

Absolutely amazing collaboration from year 10 today. 100% engagement and constant smiles from all #lovetsla #spiral
