‘Science and Nature’
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.
You would never guess that a bunch of tiny little metal balls could turn into mindblowing art. But with Nanodots, you can make all kinds of cool 3D shapes. Read on to discover the big math fun in these little magnets!
After Halloween and Thanksgiving, what do you do with all those pumpkins that are left over? You use all kinds of machines to toss them as far as possible in the Punkin Chunkin contest, of course! Read on to do the math in hurling pumpkins – and see how far they can go.
One of the most fun things about numbers is the patterns they make. It’s even more fun when the number patterns can be found in nature, like Fibonacci numbers. Read on to find out about the Fibonacci pattern and celebrate Fibonacci Day today!
