UsingMathToDesignARollerCoaster[Book: Hilary Koll, Steve Mills & Korey T. Kiepert – 2007 – 20x26cm – 32 Pages – Full colour]. How much airtime can you build into a four-minute ride? How many loops and corkscrews? Mathematics is important in the daily lives of people everywhere. You may not realize it, but engineers use mathematics for everything from drawing up plans to inspecting structures for safety. In this book, students will be able to try lots of exciting mathematics activities, using real-life data and facts about roller coasters. If you can work with numbers, measurements, shapes, charts, and diagrams, then you could design a roller coaster! ANDY SHINE’S RATING: Good for children.
