It is instructive to see the manner in which our solids of revolution differ from the usual ones when the axis of rotation intersects the graph of f (x) and what unsigned surface area is obtained.
In the classical theory a tree stem is modeled by parts using simple geometries of solids of revolution (Graves, 1906).
I will show the things I have made to teach the following ideas to blind students: geometric proofs; graphing, including gr aphing tangent lines and derivative functions; linear algebra, including matrices and their applications; and using Riemann sums to find the volume of solids of revolutions.
