Begin by selecting Start a New Conversation. 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.

Begin by selecting Start a New Conversation. 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.

You must also respond to 2 classmates’ posts. You may ask questions to elicit a more in-depth explanation, add additional information to your own posting in response to questions, share additional knowledge on another post or share an example from your own life related to the topic.Initial Post Due: Thursday, by 11:55 p.m., ET
Other Posts Due: Sunday, by 11:55 p.m., ETPlease sign ALL your Discussion posts with the name that you like to be called – it makes it so much easier for the rest of us to address you by your preferred name when we respond.
