610- The Mathematics of Angry Birds

Saturday, April 12, 2014: 9:30 AM-10:30 AM
R09 (Convention Center)
Lead Speaker:
John J. Diehl

  • Presentation_610_Diehl_The Mathematics of Angry Birds.pdf (1.0 MB)

  • 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.

    Presentation Format: 9-12 Session
