Math Exhibition Help........
Hello Guys,
Could somebody suggest what to do at a math exhibition based on Calculus?

Note:- I know only upto Partial Differential Equations.

Prove It
What about some maximisation/minimisation problems? And finding areas and volumes of irregular shapes - the wine glass by rotation is a classic...

Could you please explain to me the process by which I should "Find the area and volume of a wine glass by rotation........". Thanks a lot in advance..

Also sprach Zarathustra
Borsuk-Ulam Theorem -- from Wolfram MathWorld

Using some calculus tools you can easily prove :

That at any given moment, there are two diametrically opposite points on the
(spherical?) Earth's surface where the temperatures are equal and the
barometric pressure are equal.

I do not understand why you would decide to do a presentation on something you know nothing about. Surely the point is either to present about something you do know, or to do some research (which no doubt is something whoever set you this task would have wanted you to do). It is not our job to do your research.

Since you know calculus "upto partial differential equations", the obvious answer is to go look at your notes/text book.
