I had my Numerical Methods student calculate the angle that would give a ballistic projectile its maximum range, then I had them write a program that did the the same by just trying a bunch of different angles. The diagram above is what they came up with.
It made an interesting pattern that I converted into a face-plate cover for a light switch that I made using the laser at the TechShop.
