Park City 2011: Problem Set #7
July 13, 2011 Leave a comment
Apologies for the late posting of today’s set. There were some last-minute edits to bad jokes about the US Women’s Soccer team.
A brief description of the “salt activity”:
- Get a big salt dispenser, a box, a paper cup, and a cardboard cutout of a triangle.
- Put the triangle on the upside-down cup inside the box. This steadies the triangle. Make sure it is flat.
- POUR SALT everywhere until the triangle is completely covered with salt. More. Put as much salt as you possibly can on the triangle.
- Ideally, do it over again with more different triangles to help understand what is happening.
