#### Hellooooooooo Darlings,

#### Mathspig is going to the Aussie Open Tennis Semi-finals tonight.

#### Some quick maths.

#### Men’s and Women’s Singles Prize Money;

#### Win; $3,100,000

#### Runner UP: $1,550,00

#### It cost me … ARGGHHHH! … $Aus250 a ticket. If they play for the average game time of a Grand Slam match of 1 1/2 hrs it will costing me $2.78 a minute or 1 1/2 cappuccinos a minute.

#### If the game goes for 3 hrs (more common in finals) it will be costing me $1.39 a minute, but the winner gets $650,000 for playing in a semi-final and that means they earn – for 3 hrs – $7,222 a minute. Now that is a lot of cappuccinos.

**Of course, tennis stars need maths … to count all that loot!!!!!!!**

### Hellooooooooo My Little Wallaroos,

#### Mathspig has been reading *The Last Child in the Woods* by Richard Louv. He describes school today as a form of ‘passive incarceration’. Too many children live their life indoors exposed to the ‘one-way experience of television and other electronic media’. Many rarely, or never, experience nature or just digging for worms in the garden. And sometimes nature is just around the corner.

#### Mathspig lives 10 km from the CBD in Melbourne, Australia. Aussies often joke about riding kangaroos to school or warn of Drop Bears (Koalas that kill tourists dropping from trees). It’s our Aussie sense of humour. Those jokes almost seemed real when these kangaroos turned up by the Yarra river below Mathspig’s house recently. They’re wild roos. I saw them at 9am one Sunday looking at all the joggers, dog-walkers and cyclists on the nearby bike track. They didn’t seem worried. Awesome. Or, maybe, roo-some.

#### So outdoors we go, mathpiggeies, to embrace nature and have some grand maths adventures:

#### Other outdoor maths adventures on this blog:

#### Why not invent a new unit of length, make a string in, say, Smoots, and go outside and measure parts of the school.

### 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

### Mathspig

### 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
