‘Science and Nature’
You might stay up extra late on New Year’s Eve to celebrate it turning the next year. But if you do, you’re usually extra tired the next day, which causes lots of yawning. Read on to do the math on how yawns stack up when they go from one person to another – and even to your dog!
It’s fun to have a snowball fight, but it’s hard work making all those snowballs to throw. Well, it’s so cold that along one beach in Siberia, Nature-made snowballs are showing up! Read on to have a ball with the math behind these natural snowballs of various sizes.
Have you ever been ice skating? How about on a pink ice skating rink? A hotel in Florida is known for making the ice on its rink pink. And when you think about how warm it is in Florida and how cold ice needs to stay so it doesn’t melt, this rink takes a lot of math! Read on to skate through the numbers in this pink rink.
Have you ever seen one thing suddenly look like something else, like an electrical outlet that looks like a smiley face? Our brains like to see patterns, and...
In reeeeeally cold places, people sometimes live in igloos, small homes built of blocks of ice and snow. One couple decided to make an igloo out of colorful ice blocks. Read on to find out how they did it – and see how the math in igloo-making stacks up!
If you raced an alligator, who would win? Are you faster than an alligator? Read on to do the math to see if you could say “See ya later, alligator!” in a race against this short, stumpy friend.
You probably know that it isn’t a great idea to eat out of the garbage. But that’s where some of the favorite foods of raccoons come from. Read on to do the math behind these super smart, masked masterminds!
It’s fun to get a goody bag after going to a party. And just imagine if that goody bag is actually filled with water…and a new pet fish! Read on to find out more about this event that actually happened at Bedtime Math, and see just how much math those new fish pet-owners did to keep their swimming friends happy.
As it gets colder, you might see squirrels skittering around with their cheeks full of food or digging everywhere. Why do they do this, and how did one forgetful squirrel many, many years ago lead to a cool flower? Read on to find out, and dig into the math of squirrels, seeds, and nature!
Bedtime Math fan Michael B. just let us know that scientists found a fish on the ocean floor that can walk! Read on to take a walk on the wild side with the math in this amazing discovery.
