Topic 1: Parabolas are Everywhere!

This is an opportunity to explore occurrences of parabolas in the world around us. Click on "View Full Description" below for the directions.


Parabolic shapes in the real world

According to Wikipedia, that great internet source of both information and misinformation, "In nature, approximations of parabolas and paraboloids are found in many diverse situations."

Begin by clicking Start a New Conversation. Make your example of a parabola in real life (Bouncing ball) the subject of your post, and then tell us in your own words about your parabolic find (at least 250 words). Do not just make this up off the top of your head. The St Louis Arch, for example, is NOT a parabola—it is an inverted catenary. Please cite a source confirming that your example is, indeed, parabolic and not some other more exotic curve. Frequently, other students become interested in a topic as a result of reading a post. Having a source cited gives them a starting point to do additional research on their own.

You must also respond to 2 classmates' posts in 50 words or more. You may ask questions to elicit a more in-depth explanation, add additional information to your own posting in response to questions, share additional knowledge on another post or share an example from your own life related to the topic.

Please sign ALL your Forum posts with the name that you like to be called - it makes it so much easier for the rest of us to address you by your preferred name when we respond.
