At The Circus
ORC# 8874
Resource Information
Resource Type: Lessons
Discipline: Mathematics
Professional Commentary: Students use algebra or geometry software to discover that the height at which guy wires supporting two vertical poles cross does not depend on how far apart the poles are. This counterintuitive result can lead to conjecturing and testing hypotheses as to what factors determine the height at which the wires cross....
