Have you ever walked so long it felt like you were walking for days? One man actually did walk for days – 99 days to be exact – as he trekked across the United States, from California to Maine. Read on to find out how the miles added up!
The engines in our cars make them run, but how do they work? One person decided to make a neat model of an engine. But it’s not made from metal like you might expect. Read on to find out what this magical model is made from, and how it runs – and motor through the model engine 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!

Zip lines are a fun way to soar through the air from one place to another. Usually those places are in the same country. But one of our favorite zip lines soars from Spain to Portugal. Read on to find out more about this wild ride – and zip through the math!
Sometimes cars have to wait at a railroad crossing for a train to pass. But cars on one highway in Gibraltar have that beat – they need to wait at an airplane crossing! Read on to see how the airport has timing down to a science, and fly through the math.
As if launching a hot air balloon wasn’t cool enough, people in France decided to break a world record by launching the most hot air balloons at one time! Read on to see just how many balloons it took to sail away with the record, and take flight with the hot-air-balloon math.
It’s hard to get something that’s more fun than Legos, robots, or cars – except when they’re all together! Read on to do the math on a Lego robot that builds Lego cars, and see how quickly the fun adds up.
When people fly into the U.S. with their pets, the animals have to stay at the airport for a few days to make sure they’re healthy.
