Math in the News: Issue 72--Box Office Flop!

August 2013. In this issue we analyze why the movie the Lone Ranger is considered a box office flop, even though it has earned nearly $100 million. We analyze box office data. Note: The download is a PPT file.

Math in the News: Issue 87--The Wonders of 3D Printing

January 2014. In this issue of Math in the News we look at 3D printing technology. In particular, we look at Nike's recent unveiling of a new running shoe developed using 3D printing. Mathematically, we look at recursive functions, since the 3D printing technology was used for rapid, iterative prototyping of the new shoe. We look at an example of a recursive function, using the Babylonian method to calculate the square root of a number. Note: The download is a PPT file.
