Fruit Fight
September 16th, 2021

When you pick a peach off a tree, you don’t expect to see a cherry hanging right next to it. But that’s exactly what happens if you pick a piece of fruit from Sam Van Aken’s tree. Read on to find out more about this awesome tree – and do the juicy math!

Why Do Cats Have Whiskers?
September 15th, 2021

Cats are furry and fuzzy all over, but the most important bit of fluff might be a cat’s whiskers. Their whiskers are important because they help the cats do math in tight spaces! Read on to find out how.

How many penguins are there in Antarctica? No, really – scientists are asking you to help count these birds!

When Cat Meets Deer
September 13th, 2021

We’re loving this video of a very confused-looking cat meeting up with some equally confused-looking deer, maybe for the first time for all of them. It makes sense that the little cat would be nervous, but if you do the math, the deer shouldn’t be so scared, right?

A Very Prickly Family
September 12th, 2021

We’ve seen lots of odd animal friend pairings before. But this one might be the oddest. A soft, cuddly cat decided to become a mama to 4 cute, prickly hedgehog babies who needed one. Read on to cuddle up with the math in this odd pairing.

Duck, Duck, Horse
September 10th, 2021

Animals are great at making friends. We’ve seen hedgehogs cuddle up with kitties, turtles hang out with a capybara, and even cats (cheetahs) and dogs get along.

Proud As a Pea…cake?

We just love this flashy cake and cupcake combo! It was made by Malizzi Cakes for a big wedding party. Peacocks are famous for their feathers, so what better way to show them off than with a stream of cupcakes? The bakers told us the main cake can serve 75 people. That’s not counting the 125 cupcakes, each with 4 pieces of frosting to make the feather “eye.” All that baking and decorating took about 8 hours. But it was worth it, and we bet the cake was eaten in way less time!

Why Did the Duck Cross the Road?
September 8th, 2021

Every once in a while, we’re driving down a road and have to stop to let a family of geese cross, or a mama deer and her fawns, or maybe just a squirrel if you see him in time. But like the people who filmed this video, we enjoy watching — and counting! Read on to see how the ducks line, and add, up.
