‘Vehicles and Transportation’
It’s hard work to lift things, especially when they’re heavy. So just imagine how hard a rocket has to work when it’s blasting into space and carrying thousands of gallons of fuel! Read on to get carried away with spaceship math that’s out of this world.
Seeing a car gliding on 2 wheels might make you stop and take a second look. But a few years ago, a few people in Saudi Arabia started driving like this for fun (on non-crowded roads we hope!). Read on to do the math on this new craze called “sidewalk skiing,” and see how it’s a fun, crazy balancing act.
Dogs are pretty smart and you can teach them some fun tricks. But some dogs living in the Russian city of Moscow have taught themselves a pretty nifty trick. Read on to find out what it is – and do the math on commuting pooches!
Bedtime Math fan Sara D. asked us, how long would it take for an army of ants to pick her up and carry her across the U.S.? Read on to find out – and march through the math of mighty ants!
You see speed limit signs lots of places while driving: in neighborhoods, on highways, in front of schools. But we bet you’ve never seen a speed limit as slow as the one where the first person to get a speeding ticket was! Read on to find out just how low it was, and zip through the math in slow speed limits.
Bedtime Math fan Tristam J. asked us, how many apples could you fit inside an airplane? Read on to find out and do the high-flying math in apple-filled airplanes!
Today we can travel across the country really fast by taking an airplane. But airplanes weren’t always around, which is why it was a big deal when the Transcontinental Railroad tracks were connected and people could get across the country more quickly than riding a horse or going around it by boat. Read on to take a trip with the math in this terrific train ride!
Bedtime Math fan Hailey S. asked us, how long does it take to fly to Mars? And Mary Claire A., another fan, just told us about this cool new way to live “on” Mars once you get there. Read on to do the out-of-this-world math on a galactic trip to Mars!
It’s fun to drive fast on a highway, but that’s nothing like driving a racecar. Read on to speed away with the math in racecars to get ready for the Indy 500 race!
Boats can float in any size. But it just seems like it’s more fun when it’s the world’s biggest cruise ship, complete with a 100-foot-tall water slide. Read on to cruise through the math in this giant ship!
