‘Vehicles and Transportation’
Bedtime Math fan Symone B. went to Alaska and got to see huskies pull dogsleds in Denali National Park. Vehicles aren’t allowed in the park, so the dogs carry everything from place to place – including people! Read on to see how the miles and weight of their loads really add up – and do the math on these hard-working dogs.
When you’re traveling, you’ll see all kinds of road signs telling you where you are and what to do, like stop or slow down. They may not look too big, but you’d be surprised by how giant they really are! Read on to find out the truth behind the size of these signs – and map out the road-sign math.
Bedtime Math fan Mero H. asked us, how fast can a monster truck go? Read on to find out – and do the math, the monster math!
It’s fun to teach dogs tricks, like “paw,” and “roll over.” But to teach them to break a world record is another story! Read on to find out how Otto the dog became a world record holder, and skate through the math of dogs on wheels.
Bedtime Math fan Kaien M. asked us a great question: how many birds would it take to pick you up and fly with you? Read on to fly away with the math and see what the answer to this question is!
Lots of dogs enjoy going for car rides. And apparently one woman thought her hamster was missing out and needed a ride of his own. Read on to see the math that happens when you let a hamster out of his hamster wheel to go on a four-wheeled adventure!
It’s always tough to choose a Halloween costume from all the possible choices. And there are even more options if you think outside the box – like being a Transformer or piece of sushi! Read on to see where Halloween and numbers collide with some creative costume math.
Of course rockets are fast – or are they? Do they go as fast on the ground as they do in air? Or would you be able to beat a rocket in a race around your town? Read on to rocket through the math in space shuttles!
We’ve seen dogs ride skateboards and surfboards, which takes great balance. But for a dog to ride a scooter is a different story. Well, Norman the French sheepdog can do just that, and has set the doggie scooter-riding world record. When you think about all the hours of training and scooter rides it took for him to do this, it really adds up and makes his feat that much more impressive!
When people don’t believe something, they say it will happen “when pigs fly!” Well, you just may see a few pigs flying at the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta this week. Read on to be lifted up, up, and away with the math in this hot air balloon festival!
