  • I will present conic sections, spirals, catenaries, cycloids, fractals, and more, in many different ways (humorous and real). We will see hands-on activities, computer/calculator applications, and free online videos. I will focus on connections within mathematics and science. (Come learn why there really aren't any parabolic trajectories on Earth.)
