Travel Pig 2

Helloooooo Sweat Peas,

Did you know the world is just covered in mathsy place names? There are streets, Boulevards, roads, lanes and ways all boasting mathsy names. 

So this week Mathspig just has to ask: 

What place boasts the most mathematical street names in the world?

And this week don’t forget the yummy Easter Egg maths.

THE SPEECH MathsPig MathsPig MathsPig MathsPig MathsPig MathsPig MathsPig MathsPig MathsPig MathsPig MathsPig MathsPig MathsPig MathsPig MathsPig MathsPig MathsPig MathsPig MathsPig ……………………. with Kerry Cue

Hello My Mathematical Friends,

Official Seal of MATHSPIG The President of the United States of Mathematics

Official Seal of MATHSPIG
The President of the
United States of Mathematics

The Gettysburg Address, Martin Luther King’s ‘I have a dream’ Speech and Winston Churchill’s ‘We shall fight on the beaches … we shall fight in the fields and in the streets … we shall never surrender’ speech were speeches that inspired millions in difficult times.

Maths needs an inspiring speech.

Why?

Because today too many kids do maths like this:

They sit in front of a computer. They answer questions on a program as if they’re shooting at a target. They don’t care about the maths. They just want to know their score. All very entertaining … but they’re not working their brains. They do not think.

Many do not know their tables even in Year 7.

Maths has turned into a guessing game. And they struggle with it.

Here is the comic take on the problem: Hugo Does His Homework, sort of.

But there is a serious side.

Maths needs an inspiring speech. So listen up Middle School students. Here it is:

Mathspig Daily Express 2

Hellooooooooo My Little Butterflies,

Even if, like Muhammad Ali, you can move like a butterfly and sting like a bee, evidence shows that being hit in the head can cause brain damage and/or kill you. (Ban boxing – it’s demeaning and dangerous, New Scientist, 12 Aug, 2013)

Don’t get into a fight about this issue. Just do the maths. It’s a no brainer!

It’s a Knuckle Breaker KNUCKLE HEAD!

Toodles
