In the task "Carbon 14 Dating'' the amount of Carbon 14 in a preserved plant is studied as time passes after the plant has died. In practice, however, scientists wish to determine when the plant died and, as this task shows, this is not possible with a simple measurement of the amount of Carbon 14 remaining in the preserved plant. The equation for the amount of Carbon 14 remaining in the preserved plant is in many ways simpler here, using 12 as a base.

This lesson is for a math classroom, but can be adapted to fit any grade, subject, or content. In this lesson, students will use an iPad and its features: Keynote, Pages, Garageband, Numbers, Presentation, and iMovie. Students will use 3 of those features/programs to create a video lesson consisting of several examples from a topic of their choice. This project is in place of a term final, so their chosen topic should be from their current term.Image citation: The image is one I created.
