### 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

…

# 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!!!

## Welcome to the Zombie Olympics.

## This could take some time.

## Another way of calculating a Zombie’s velocity

## or speed is to use direct proportion.

# ZOMBIE eat hockey team ..

# EAT Gym Team too… very young

# … very tender

# mmMMMM …… YUM!

### 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

### 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 @

### 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!

## How long for Zombie to walk around the earth?

### According to The Universe Today the circumference of the earth is 40,075 km or 24,901km.

### In other words, if you could drive your car around the equator of the Earth (yes, even over the oceans), you’d put on an extra 40,075 km on the odometer. It would take you almost 17 days driving at 100 km/hour, 24 hours a day to complete that journey.

### As Zombie can walk under water, how long would it take Zombie to walk around the earth?

### Assuming he doesn’t have to stop and that the ocean is not too deep ….

### y = k t

### y= 40,075 km

### k = 2.25 kph

### 40,075 = 2.25 t

### t = 40,075/ 2.25

### t = 17,811 hours

### t = 17,811/24 days

### t = 742 days

### t = 742/365

# t = 2 years 12 days

# ARE WE THERE YET?

# …………………………Argh! Grrrr! Gurgle!
