Trucks are big and heavy vehicles, so they can’t fly off ramps like bikes and skateboards can…right? That’s not what Gregg Godfrey thought when he attempted to set the record for the longest truck jump. Read on to find out if he was successful – and do the math in truck jumping stunts!
Have you ever walked by a really grimy car and run your finger through the grime to write your name? Well, artist Ben Long makes whole pictures this way! Read on to get the dirt on his art, and do the math!
Pools and bathtubs give us a great place to play and to relax. But have you ever gone swimming in one while it’s rolling down the road? Read on to learn about two Canadian guys who looked to break the world record doing just that – and make a splash with some carpool math!
Of all the highways you might have driven on, the most exciting ones in America might be the interstate highways. And these highways are numbered a special way so we can always know where we are. Read on to hit the road with some highway math!
We’ve heard of purring engines before, but not quite like this. A guy drove to work one morning and realized there was a kitten who hopped along for the ride under the hood of his car. Read on to find out this story’s purrfect ending – and do the stowaway kitten math!
Dirt bikes are fun, and so is surfing. Put them together and you’re bound to have tons of thrills! That’s exactly what one dirt biker did. Read on to find out just how he did this, and ride the wave of math in dirt bike surfing.
It’s so tempting when you feel tired and lazy to take the elevator or escalator instead of walking up the stairs. But what if we made walking up the stairs more fun — would more people do it? Read on to learn what the car company Volkswagen did to make stair-walking more fun, and see how the stairs and fun add up!
