Mathematical Lens
Mathematical Lens: Shining the Light on Mathematics

The Editors; Edited by Ron Lancaster and Brigitte Bentele 

November 2013, Volume 107, Issue 4, Page 252

Abstract:
Students analyze a photograph to solve mathematical questions related to the images captured in the photograph. This month, photographs of the Al Bahr Towers in Abu Dhabi generate questions on area, the Pythagorean theorem and special right triangles, and trigonometric regression.

This material is only available to signed-in subscribers.
