6/12/19 - Calculus and Precalculus Rocket Day

Mrs. Cucci’s calculus and precalculus classes held their annual Rocket Day on June 12. Students researched aerodynamics and fin design in order to create rockets that would travel a maximum height and distance. The height of the rockets was calculated using mathematics the students had learned throughout the school year.  Students were also tasked with having a raw egg "on board" and designing a structure that would save the egg from cracking upon impact with the ground. This year, a total of five of nine eggs survived their crash landings!
