Math while at OFSAA

March 7, 2019

Divers in flight are pretty close to tangent lines to a parabolic trajectory.

We watched some fast races, all timed to the 100th of a second.  We recorded split times (every lap) of the races for our swimmers so we could compare speeds (distance/time) for the different sections of their race.


We watched divers practice from the platforms, and they we able to rotate and flip so many times as they fell.  I wondered how much water was in the pool, and how heavy that’d be.  I also wondered about how many tiles it would take to cover all the surfaces.
