TrigPong What is TrigPong you say? TrigPong is Ping Pong with lots of triangles! When you think about it, you can find triangles in just about everything. In this exciting game, every time you hit the ball you’ve created another triangle! Trigonometry is the study of triangles, specifically right triangles and there is lots of Trigonometry in this game as well as Geometry. When you serve the ball in ping pong you make a right triangle without even realizing it! Your Elbow is the point of one angle. When you start serving your forearm is at an angle already which is your hypotenuse, and when you follow through the length of the motion you make with your racket is one leg and the table forms the other leg. Another example of a triangle in TrigPong is when you hit the ball. If you connect the points where you hit the ball and the other person receives the ball you have one leg, and the path of the ball that you hit forms two more sides. One when the ball travels down to the table, and the other after the ball bounces and its traveling back up to the person receiving the ball. The triangles’ dimensions and angles depend on the force of the ball and how high your paddle is. There is also some Geometry in TrigPong. The table and the net are both rectangles, and the table is split up by lines that form smaller rectangles. You play the game with a circular paddle and spherical ball. The table is nine by five feet, and two and a half feet tall. Also, your stance when playing…

How Astronomers Use Trigonometry
What is trigonometry? It defines relations between elements of a triangle. The word
“trigonometry” comes from the Greek word “trigonometria.” It means tri (three), gonia (angle),
and metro (measure). Trigonometry is used in many different ways and forms. There are many
fields where trigonometry is very useful and important, and is used daily as a part of the person’s
One example of a job that uses trigonometry is astronomy. Astronomy is a branch of…
spheres had a special name, they were called dragon balls. As the legend stated, a person who collects all seven dragon balls will get a wish from an eternal dragon. The eternal dragon was known as “Shenron” the master of all dragons since he had the power to grant any wish to a human being. Once a person collects all seven dragon balls, the sky will turn all dark, lighting will appear, and the dragon will appear or be summoned from the seven dragon balls. However, there was a trick or a special chant…
create value when it is incorporated into golf balls?
The value based business strategy: No it does not create value
There is no existing vertical chain in the business. The supplier of the technique exists but not the firm creating value nor the buyers (buyers maybe, we don’t know)
Creation of additional value is not possible either while the chain is not there- no bargaing.
Yes, it does create value because buyers would maybe pay more for a golf ball, which has a technique that tells if one can…

I've never seen a diamond in the flesh
I cut my teeth on wedding rings in the movies
And I'm not proud of my address,
In a torn-up town, no postcode envy
But every song's like gold teeth, grey goose, trippin' in the bathroom
Blood stains, ball gowns, trashin' the hotel room,
We don't care, we're driving Cadillacs in our dreams.
But everybody's like Cristal, Maybach, diamonds on your timepiece.
Jet planes, islands, tigers on a gold leash.
We don't care, we aren't caught up in your love…
Trigonometry and the Unit Circle
Lesson One: Angles and Angle Measures
Specific Outcome 1: Demonstrate an understanding of angles in standard position, expressed in degrees and radians.
1.1 Sketch, in standard position, an angle (positive or negative) when the measure is given in degrees.
1.2 Describe the relationship among different systems of angle measurement, with emphasis on radians and degrees.
1.3 Sketch, in standard position, an angle with a measure of 1 radian…

craters of a steel ball on flour when dropped from a specific height. A steel ball is dropped at various heights over a bowl of flour. When the ball hits the flour, a crater is formed. What I am trying to investigate is the correlation between the height (x) at which the steel ball is dropped and the diameter (y) of the crater.
How does the diameter of the crater depend on the height at which the ball is dropped at?
Independent Variable: The height at which the steel ball is dropped at…

“Awesome Ball Girl” and Perception
In the short video of “Awesome Ball Girl”, there is a young ball girl working in the field that makes such a great catch, most professionals would not have been able to make. At the start of the video you would think that you are about to see a home run after a great hit, but my eyes were drawn elsewhere; just like the crowd and two teams. This shows the first stage in the perception process: selection…
