I wonder how many feet high the tallest roller coaster is in the world? 456 feet tall! I bet I can beat that! Let me go to my office.
Wait, what is the highest point on a roller coaster called? I will ring my friend Rob Quadratic to see if he knows.
Hello Jeff! The U shape hill a roller coaster makes is an example of a quadratic. The tallest point on this roller coaster you plan on making is called a parabola.
Thanks for the help Rob! So my parabola has to greater than 456 feet tall.
Correct! And don't forget that the roller coaster will have a vertical stretch too. This is what makes it steep.
Right! Thanks for all your help Rob! I'm already on my way to begin making blue prints, but first I have a little joke I think you would enjoy!
