Mathspig Politicans maths

Hellooooooooo Sweeties,

Mathspig is always bemused that politicians (all shades), who struggle with maths of the economy, taxes and even their own expense accounts, suddenly become experts on how to teach maths.

Back to Basics is the current catch cry of politicians around the world … to win votes, of course. But what does it mean?:

Back to the 1950s?

With class sizes of 50, student reports stating ‘Margret was 33rd in the grade’ and the ‘strap’ waiting at the ready in the teacher’s desk draw.

Back to the 1960s?

When maths wasn’t taught to girls. (In Year 8 Mathspig went to a convent. The nuns only taught arithmetic.)

Back to the 1970s?

When the school curriculum was seen by some to be class-based patriarchal propaganda. Some schools stopped scoring football games to prevent the elitist paradigm spreading.

Today?

For some Back to Basics means Direct Instruction: a rigid, repetitious form of maths instruction when maths can be so much more. See Beware Maths Fundamentalists

Mathspigs Mission:

To make maths interesting, relevant and fun.

Here are some examples:

RATES:………………………………………………………………….

The Curious Nature of Drummers’ Brains

………………………………………………………………………..

% and LINEAR GRAPH:………………………………………

Hunger Games: How long does it take to bleed to death?

 ………………………………………………………………………..

PARABOLIC EQN:………………………………………………….

Hunger Games:  How much an arrow drops in 100m?

 ………………………………………………………………………..

GEOMETRY:………………………………………………………..

The raising of the Concordia

 ………………………………………………………………………..

PYTHAGORUS:…………………………………………………….

How Radar Works and the Search for a Ghost Ship

………………………………………………………………………..

mathspig world 2

Hellooooooooo Sweat Peas,

If you counted @ the rate of 1 number per second …. That’s 7 Billion seconds 

or (rounding off) 117,000,000 mins

or 1,944,000 hrs

or 81,000 days

or 221 years !!!!

Oooooooo! But this is sloooooow counting. 

How fast can you count?

You’ll find an online stop watch here.

Time yourself counting to 60. This will give you your count rate (60/time = rate nos. per sec)

Now you can calculate how long it would take YOU to count to 7 Billion.

Who is the fastest counter in your maths class?

More population maths follows.

Bye-de-bye

Hello Sweet Peas,

This week we are busting Maths Myths. There are many Urban Myths involving maths.

Myths involving maths work because the number sounds sort of right.

eg. Drink 8 glasses of water a day.

Drink 64 fl oz or 1.89 litres of water a day  does NOT sound quite right, yet this is the same volume of water!!

Here is an Urban Myth involving maths from Mythbusters.

In 2009 (Episode 117) Grant, Tory, and Kari investigated the Myth that a giant 2m (7 ft) Lego ball rolling down a hill could smash a car.

They borrowed 1 million blocks and with all hands on deck built a 1,400 kg (3,000 pound) ball.

Did it smash the car?Nah! It fell to bits first.

Myth Busted.

But you can turn yourself into a Little Lego Character here.

There is a fabulous exercise for middle school maths with worksheets on how rumours spread @ 6 degrees of separation.

Now on with the Maths Myth Busting

Cheerio
