Mathematical Lens
Mathematical Lens: Life Is a Bowl of Mathematics

Edited by Ron Lancaster and Brigitte Bentele 

October 2011, Volume 105, Issue 3, Page 174

Abstract:
Students analyze a photograph to solve mathematical questions related to the images captured in the photograph. This month the editors consider photographs of African bowls made of recycled telephone wire. The mathematics involves trigonometry, parametric equations and their graphs, and linear regression.
