The Mathematics of Spiderman and the Physics of Superheroes

Recently, I introduced my readers to a new website called Learnist, it was described as a cross between Facebook and Pinterest for education. Today I came across an interesting board on Learnist called Math Sites (http://learni.st/users/rosanna.luzarraga/boards/2274-math-sites) by Rosanna Claudia Luzarrage.

One particular entry grabbed my attention, The Mathematics of Spiderman and the Physics of Superheroes (http://learni.st/learnings/25327-the-mathematics-of-spiderman-and-the-physics-of-superheroes). Prof. Skip Garibaldi, from the Department of Mathematics & Computer Science of Emory University, gives a unique slant on Spiderman and Mathematics. This will surely keep students engaged.
