What do the Sydney Opera House and Freddie Mercury have in common?

November 6, 2018

Freddie Mercury is back in the news with the release of the new biopic BOHEMIAN RHAPSOSDY. ( Mathspig gives it ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐. But I’m a Freddie fan. ) So Freddie and the Opera House? What do they have in common?

NOTE: Uncanny likeness of biopic actors to the real Queen!

According to intmath The Sydney Opera House is a very unusual design based on slices out of a ball. Many differential equations (one type of integration) were solved in the design of this building.

You will never see a better parody of Queen’s ICONIC song BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY than Calculus Rhapsody By Phil Kirk & Mike Gospel (below).

And if you need to be reminded of the maths you will find links to texts here.

Trick 8: Spooky Maths Magic

May 4, 2018

Spooky Maths Magic

Requirements; Smart board/data projector.

 This is mental maths, but not hard maths. You can play this video by Marco Frezza  directly to the class.

It may not work on everybody, but it would be very interesting to see how many students are fooled by this spooky magic man.
