Mathspig does Sydney Harbour Bridge

Helloooooooo My Maths Lovelies,

Maths gets a bad press. Senior students especially girls are dropping maths. And it is happening mathpiggies in English speaking countries. Look at the % of students studying maths at university from Dropping maths Doesn’t Add Up, SMH, 27 Feb 2013.

Maths is now classed for many university degrees as – Scream now. Arrrrrrrrrrghhhhhhhhh! – ASSUMED KNOWLEDGE. Well, you better start assuming they don’t have any knowledge.

Maths needs better PR at school.

Maths is not visible in schools. Other subjects have their selling points.

 Languages other than English have FOOD.

Geography has VOLCANOES and TRAVEL.

English has PLAYS and FILMS.

History has BLOODY WARS and TYRANNTS.

Drama has a school MUSICAL or PLAY.

Art has, D’uh, rooms full of amazing ART.

Science has BAD SMELLS, EXPLOSIONS and DAVID ATTENBOROUGH.

How can we make maths more visible and more fun in high school?

Be AUDACIOUS, my little mathspiggies.

Think BIG and then even BIGGER again.

Here are 12 ways of making Maths

more visible in your school.

Supporting mathstress

Helloooo Mathpigs Darlings,

It is the award season …. you know the BAFTAs, the Grammies, the Oscars. And if there was a Maths Academy Award Mathspig just knows she would win Supporting Mathstress.

Mathspig is soooooo excited because Gotye won 3 Grammys. He’s from Melbourne too.

In the meantime, I’m getting my speech ready for the Best Supporting Mathstress Award:

I like to thank Pythagoras, He was wonderful to work with. And my partner, Grubby… NO. He was husband NO 2 … Chubby… or, is it Porker. Yes! That’s the one.

And my two adopted children, Ebony and Ivory, and Olaf my astral traveling numerologist.

Avoid root 2 all this week. It’s a very irrational number, you know.

But Oooooooooooooooo!!!!!!! the shoes the girls wear on the Red Carpet kill. In fact, Mathspig’s Killer Heels that Kill post has been so popular you should have a little look, darlings.

Maybe you could pick the most UNWALKABLE SHOES at this year’s Oscars.

Here is some amazing maths involving music …. mostly, Headbanger Maths , darlings , because it is soooo interesting.

… kissy … kissy

Hellooooo Mathspiggies,……………………………………..

……………………………………………………………………………….

Meet my friend Algee. We’re going to do some very  tricky piggy maths. Some kids in year 6 or 7 get scared by the word a-l-g-b-r-a. Don’t say it out loud. Once letters arrive with numbers they tune out.

…………………………………………………………………………………

BUT they can learn any number of rules to play video games. So what’s up?  We are going to play ALGEE BAA!!!!

………………………………………………………………………………….

Sheep make sense to kids. Pictures make sense to kids. We can work out how many baa’s Algee baa’s.

………………………………………………………………………………….

Algee baa looks like kindergarten maths.

So, like, easy. I’m a pig, I tell you it is e-a-s-y. And that’s the point, mathspiggies. They’ll be doing Algee baa before they know it.

………………………………………………………………………………..

Later, you can tell them they are experts in that other word. First of all, do the maths with Algee.

………………………………………………………………………………….

 

This week you can try:

*Learn the rules of Algee baa  

* Do Algee baa exercises  

* Learn Advanced Algee baa I  

* Do some Advanced Algee baa I exercises  

* Learn Advanced Algee baa II  

* Don’ t forget our Baa Graph.

…………………………………………………………………………………….

Hoo Roo………………………………………………………………………..
