If snow is starting to fall where you live, you may be out there building a snowman or chucking snowballs at your friends — and you may notice how the really wet, sticky snow you can pack into shapes is also really heavy. How can those teeny specks falling from the sky weigh so much? Read on to see – and find out just how much a snowflake weighs.
Bedtime Math fan Lucas W. asked us, how many snowflakes are in a snowball? Read on to do the ice cold math!
Fall is about to turn into winter for many of us, so what do you do with all those pumpkins that won’t make it through the cold? Make yummy foods from them, of course! And the best part is, you can use almost every part of the pumpkin, including all those seeds. Read on for a simple seed recipe – and snack on some math while the seeds are cooking.
Bedtime Math fan Ajax asked us, what happens if you dig a hole straight down into the ground? How far do you have to dig to reach the bottom? Read on to find out- and dig into the math!
Birthday parties are fun. And when you’re as old as the Methuselah Tree, you deserve to have at least one party! Read on to find out just how old this plant is, and branch out with some tree math!
Bedtime Math fan Valeria M. in Spain just asked us, how long would it take to run all the way around the world? Believe it or not, it’s been done! But how long would it take if you didn’t have to take any breaks? Read on to run through the math of world record runs.
