80- The Mathematics of "Angry Birds"

Thursday, April 18, 2013: 9:30 AM-10:30 AM
601 (Convention Center)
Lead Speaker:
John J. Diehl
Ismael Zamora

We will use the popular game "Angry Birds" as motivation for explorations of projectile motion, focusing on parametric relations to develop a model for motion. The exploration will study how the variables of angle and initial velocity affect the graph, the motion, and the game. We'll check the results for motion in other images and video captures.
