1. This small group activity is designed to help students construct scalar differential elements ($ds$, $dA$, $d\tau$) for integration in curvilinear coordinates.
2. Students calculate infinitesimal line elements in curvilinear coordinates and use these to construct area and volume elements.
3. The whole class discussion focuses on infinitesimal scalar elements used in integration in curvilinear coordinates.
