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!
Lots of dogs love car rides, where they can stick their heads out the window and feel the breeze in their faces. But what about train rides? One man decided to make a special train for stray dogs near his home, and he gives them rides every week! Read on to do the math and see how this train has gone to the dogs!
Solving a Rubik’s Cube is a fun challenge. But apparently one guy decided it needed just a little more excitement. So he solved it while skydiving, giving a whole new meaning to speedcubing! Read on to fly through the math in skydiving and Rubik’s Cubes.
Imagine having your own helicopter. Now imagine that helicopter being made up of 54 smaller, tiny helicopters! That’s what one guy did to make his own personal flying machine. Read on to do the math and see how lots of small drones can add up to one big chopper.
