‘Vehicles and Transportation’
Airplanes are fun vehicles to ride in, and lots of them takeoff from airports every day. We probably don’t realize just how many are flying in the sky, so one photographer decided to camp out at Los Angeles International Airport for a day and take pictures as each plane took off. Read on to takeoff with some math and see just how many planes are leaving this airport each day.
It’s not every day you find treasure. So it must have been really exciting when divers found a treasure of rare coins off the coast of Florida. Read on to find out just how much these 300-year-old coins were worth then and now!
Have you ever walked so long it felt like you were walking for days? One man actually did walk for days – 99 days to be exact – as he trekked across the United States, from California to Maine. Read on to find out how the miles added up!
The engines in our cars make them run, but how do they work? One person decided to make a neat model of an engine. But it’s not made from metal like you might expect. Read on to find out what this magical model is made from, and how it runs – and motor through the model engine math!
Zip lines are a fun way to soar through the air from one place to another. Usually those places are in the same country. But one of our favorite zip lines soars from Spain to Portugal. Read on to find out more about this wild ride – and zip through the math!
Sometimes cars have to wait at a railroad crossing for a train to pass. But cars on one highway in Gibraltar have that beat – they need to wait at an airplane crossing! Read on to see how the airport has timing down to a science, and fly through the math.
When people fly into the U.S. with their pets, the animals have to stay at the airport for a few days to make sure they’re healthy. And now one airport has begun building a place where the pets can stay in style! Read on to find out about all the special treats these pets get, and do the flying, furry-friend math.
Why are we so excited about Pluto today? Read on to find out what (literally) astronomical event is causing a Pluto party – and do the millions of miles of math!
People fly on airplanes all the time. But flying on jetpacks? That’s something completely new…and it could be possible as early as a few years from now! Read on to fly through the math of this fantastically futuristic invention.
Playgrounds are really fun and planes are cool, so imagine putting them together to create an awesome play space! Read on to do the math in this playground-in-the-sky contraption.
