Math Topics/Physics - Connections to the PCMI Theme Summary

Thursday, July 3, 2003

Thursday was a quiet but productive day for us. We broke into groups and started working on separate projects. Tom and Beverly worked on "finding heights of buildings/flagpoles/hills using a clinometer and trig functions as out of classrom activities". Rani and Kyle worked with Brian on finding the closed form for a recursive formula, in particular, the Fibonacci sequence. Nikki and Holly explored examples of applications of linear functions.
