Name at least one thing that you really enjoy about the class (come on, there must be something!) and at least one improvement that could make this class even better. Feel free to editorialize!

Also, this is a good time to make a “keep-quit-start” resolution.

• What are you doing to help yourself learn in this class that you are going to keep doing because it’s working?

• What are you doing that is hindering you from learning in this class that you are going to quit doing?

• What do you think will help you improve your learning in this class that you are going to start doing?


Research ONE example of a conic section in real life that has not already been used by a classmate.

Make your choice (Bouncing ball) the subject of your post, and then tell us in your own words about your find. Do not just make this up off the top of your head. The St Louis Arch, for example, is NOT a parabola—it is an inverted catenary.

To get credit for this Discussion, you must cite a source confirming that your example is, indeed, a conic and not some other more exotic curve.

Using a personal example (My eyebrow) will not count unless you can cite a source verifying that eyebrows are parabolic.
