HalloweenMathActivities

 

Media4Math has created a collection of math resources that are Halloween themed. This collection includes games, interactives, presentations, and more. To see the complete collection, go here.

Start with our Pumpkin π activity: http://www.media4mathplus.com/SlideShow/231/Pumpkin-Pi. In this multi-grade activity students measure the diameter and circumference of different sized pumpkins, create a scatterplot, estimate the line of best fit, and determine the slope of the line. This hands-on activity is a great way to explore the concept of π, while weaving in other concepts.

Or try our whack-a-mole games. This suite of games test divisibility rules. Depending on the game, students are either “whacking” pumpkins or bats with numbers on them. Students gain points when they identify the correct divisibility rules, but they lose two points when they choose the wrong number.

In this issue of Math in the News we look at 3D printing technology. In particular, we look at Nike’s recent unveiling of a new running shoe developed using 3D printing. Mathematically, we look at recursive functions, since the 3D printing technology was used for rapid, iterative prototyping of the new shoe. We look at an example of a recursive function, using the Babylonian method to calculate the square root of a number.
