The setting is Ohio State University about six or seven years ago in a huge lecture hall (approximately 1000 students) for a Calculus final. Apparently this particular calculus teacher wasn’t very well liked. He was one of those guys who would stand at the front of the class and yell out how much time was remaining before the end of a test, a real charmer. Since he was so busy galavanting around the room making sure that nobody cheated and that everyone was aware of how much time they had left before their failure on the test was complete, he had the students stack the completed tests on the huge podium at the front of the room. This made for quite a mess, remember there were 1000 students in the class.

## The Lacrosse Goal

Period 4

**The Lacrosse Goal**

** **

My experiences and interests as a lacrosse player have driven me to complete a project concerning the lacrosse goal. As one may already know, the main purpose of the game of lacrosse is to score a goal against the opponent. In order to win, a team needs to obtain the most goals. With this importance of scoring and my fascination with lacrosse in mind, I will take it another step using geometric principles. Although it may not be thought of as essential to winning, the area in which a player may shoot at does indeed have a significant impact on the probability they will score.
