What do waves have to do with math?Waves in a body of water are not constant. They often have different lengths, heights and directions. In order to design ships to survive these varied wave conditions, naval architects analyze wave data from bodies of water where the ship will be sailing. In this video, you will be given Lake Michigan wave data to analyze and make inferences about. We are confident you will be able to sail through the mathematics in this video without getting sea sick!
