MAA Found Math for the Week of September 24, 2012

MAA Found Math: We frequently get submissions of vapor trails. This week's MAA Found Math features two of the best.


Sara Johnson (Juniata College) submitted this photo. She wrote, "This is a photo that I took while my friend Brennan Cornelius and I were on our way to school, both of us are currently math student teachers. After noticing how it looked like two parallel lines cut by a transversal, we discussed the measurements of the angles for the rest of the trip."
