DO THE MATH!: TracTricks

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleOther


While out walking your puppy, you pause briefly to let her sniff her favorite fire hydrant by the curb. Her leash is taut. Anxious to get home, you start walking along the sidewalk. The puppy reluctantly, but obediently, trails behind you, leaving paw prints in the mud. Her feet follow a curve called a tractrix.
