Selected Research“The Spirituality Aspect of Healthcare: A Correlation Between Science and the Believer,” Ariel Furlow
Selected ArtFaith Rx, Shoshana Bieler
Selected Language“The Patient’s Prayer,” Livia Raulinaitis
We chose Ariel Furlow's research project because we were drawn to the spiritual aspect and the art piece, Faith Rx, by Shoshana Bieler. Our group saw multiple mathematical connections not only in the research, but also the art and literature portions of the project. Using techniques from algebra, geometry, and calculus, we were able to convey the correlation between mathematics and everyday life.

Through all of this data, we decided to focus on one statistic:
Research: Objective
Through this data, we determined a logistic equation, exponential equation, and quadratic equation.
We then compared the data and figured out the most reasonable
model.
Research Comparison
Throughout this process, we determined that the most appropriate equation is the logistic equation.
Literature: Objective
Literature: Data Comparison
