In this Excel project, students learn how to calculate the acceleration of sales using calculus. The project involves creating an Excel spreadsheet that can project sales growth over time, assuming acceleration occurs once and then remains constant. The lesson takes students through the steps of setting up the spreadsheet, including calculating the average rate of change, multiplying by the acceleration, and projecting sales growth. Students also learn how to compute percentage change and acceleration of sales. Overall, this project provides a hands-on opportunity for students to apply calculus to a real-world scenario.
