## Zombie Maths 1: Rates

December 13, 2011### First, mathspigs, to do Zombie Maths we must

### promise to follow the Zombie Code

### and be ghoulish, scary and unnice in an undead way.

### We must also observe

### The 10 Universal Laws of Zombie, sort of.

…

# Velocity of a Zombie:

### This is fun. To find the velocity of a Zombie mark out 10m on the floor. Ask students to imitate a Zombie and time them. This will involve deep and meaningful Zombie arguments about who is the best Zombie.

### Mathspig was a Zombie while Mr Mathspig timed her. It took Zombiepig 16 seconds to zombie walk 10m. Here are the calculations:

### A Zombie Arm can move much faster. Here are some calculations based on a guestimate using this link of Crawling Zombie.

..

# Velocity of Zombie Arm:

### According to these calculations Zombie Arm is Faster than a speeding chicken, but not as fast as an angry Squirrel. See Animal Olympics link.

# Watch for the zombie arm

# … it will grab your ankle

# and NEVER let go!!!

## Zombie Maths 2: Direct Proportion

December 13, 2011## Zombie Maths 3: Graph

December 13, 2011# Zombie Cricket

### How long will a Zombie take to make 1 run? 2 runs?

### A cricket pitch is 20.12 m (22 yds) long. :

### From graph: A Zombie takes 33sec to run 20m or 1 run

### A Zombie takes 66 sec to run 40m or 2 runs

# Check:

### y = 0.6t

### 20.12 = 0.6 t

### t = 33.5 sec for 1 run or 67 sec for 2 runs!!!!!!

……

# Zombie Baseball:

### How long would a Zombie take to run to 1st base? To do a home run?

### The Distance between bases is 60 ft 6 inches ( 18.44 m). Distance for a home run is 242 ft ( 73.76 m)

...

## From the Graph:

### A Zombie takes 30 seconds to run to first base or 122 seconds to make a home run!!!

## Check: This time look at the table above.

### That’s 2 minutes people!!!!! He is safe as long as a Zombie is fielding.

## Zombie Maths 4: Simultaneous Equations

December 13, 2011### We know the Zombie walking speed = 0.6 m/sec or 2.3 kph, rounding off.

### We know Zombie hand speed = 5 m/sec or 18 kph

### Kid walking speed is about 5 kph

### That is 5000 m

### in 60 x 60 = 3600 sec

### or , rounding off, 1.4 m/sec

.

## ……………………….y = k t

.

## ……………………….y = distance km

.

## ……………………….k = speed kph

.

## ……………………….t = time hr

# Will a Zombie catch you?

# Will a Zombie Arm catch you?

### Look at the speeds. A Zombie cannot catch you … no problem.

### BUT

### The Zombie Hand is faster than you. If it started 5km away from you, how long would it take to catch you?

### We will write two equations.

### Zombie hand Equation :

## y = 18 t – 5 ………… Eqn 1

### NB: The Zombie Hand starts 5 km away from you.

### The kid equation:

## y = 5 t ………………. Eqn 2

# How far did you walk?

### y = 5 t

### y = 5 x 0.38

### y = 1.9 km

# ZOMBIE GOT ME!!!

# ARRRRRRGGGGHHHH!

# More cool zombie stuff @

# The Laughing Mathematician.

## Zombie Maths 5: Trigonometry

December 13, 2011### Zombies are dumb.

### A Zombie starts walking toward your house from 10 km away.

### He walks in a straight line, but he is 5 degrees off target.

### How far away from your house will he end up away from your house?

# ZOMBIE LIKE PYTHAGORAS TOO!!!

# WORK OUT HOW FAR ZOMBIE WALK.

# The High -pot-in-use!

# Everyone must know the HIGH-POT-IN-USE!
