**Math can Launch One Bus with Speed minus Gravity**".

Here is the preview of the two new images I created.

## One Technical Writing Tip for Math Articles

**writing tip**explains the basics of how I added the scatter graph to the spreadsheet using Microsoft Excel on a Windows PC.

- Add the data (Time, Horizontal, Vertical, etc.) to the spreadsheet.
- Highlight the section of data that you want to graph. In this case, the numbers for Horizontal and Vertical.
- Click the "Insert" drop-down menu, select "Scatter, and select the "...with Smooth Lines and Markers" choice. This is shown in the above image.
- Once the basic chart is in place, it's ready to be dragged into position, stretched, or given titles.

Some of my previous

**writing tips**have stated how easy and useful it can be to include an image from a spreadsheet. The scatter graph is a particularly nice visual aid. Since my "bus launch" article deals with gravity, I really wanted an image of a parabolic curve. I had to include a picture of the spreadsheet's data for the math, so Excel provided a quick and easy parabola for my article.
