From the Math Department

As part of their study of probability, students in Mrs. Dailey’s Topics in College Math class developed games of chance. They determined the theoretical probabilities for winning each game, then invited one of Mrs. Kennedy’s 7th grade math classes over to spend a period playing the games. Finally, data collected while playing was used to compute empirical probabilities and compare them to the theoretical values. Learning how a game can be developed to always turn a profit drives home the moral of the story: the house always wins!

From Science

Mr. Catucci's freshman science students are using a phone app, HUDL Technique, to analyze the terminal velocities for falling coffee filters. This app is designed to analyze the motion of athletes, allowing for video analysis of baseball bat swings, gold swings, tennis serves etc. It allows the user to slow down the video, insert angle finders, lines and notes, magnify specific images and collect time data within 0.02 second changes.

The students videoed the filters falling in front of a meter stick then found data for time and height changes. This data was inputted into a google sheet for calculations and chart analysis.

Numerous investigation skills and applications dealing with drag and Newton's Laws of motion were applied.
