1. This small group activity is designed to help students derive a geometric expression for $d\vec r$ in different coordinate systems.
  2. Students use provided geometric figures to write $d\vec r$ in cylindrical, spherical, and Cartesian coordinates.
  3. The wrap-up discussion addresses why $d\vec r$ is different based on the different coordinate system and ensures that all student have a correct expression for the geometric factors.
