Zombie Maths 1: Rates

December 13, 2011

First, mathspigs, to do Zombie Maths we must

promise to follow the Zombie Code

and be ghoulish, scary and unnice in an undead way.

We must also observe

The 10 Universal Laws of Zombie, sort of.

Velocity of a Zombie:

This is fun. To find the velocity of a Zombie mark out 10m on the floor. Ask students to imitate a Zombie and time them. This will involve deep and meaningful Zombie arguments about who is the best Zombie.

Mathspig was a Zombie while Mr Mathspig timed her. It took Zombiepig 16 seconds to zombie walk 10m. Here are the calculations:

A Zombie Arm can move much faster. Here are some calculations based on a guestimate using this link of Crawling Zombie.


Velocity of Zombie Arm:

According to these calculations Zombie Arm is Faster than a speeding chicken, but not as fast as an angry Squirrel. See Animal Olympics link.

Watch for the zombie arm

… it will grab your ankle

and NEVER let go!!!


Zombie Maths 3: Graph

Zombie Cricket

How long will a Zombie take to make 1 run? 2 runs?

A cricket pitch is 20.12 m (22 yds) long. :

From graph: A Zombie takes 33sec to run 20m or 1 run

 A Zombie takes 66 sec to run 40m or 2 runs


y = 0.6t

20.12 = 0.6 t

t =  33.5 sec for 1 run or 67 sec for 2 runs!!!!!!


Zombie Baseball:

How long would a Zombie take to run to 1st base? To do a home run?

The Distance between bases is 60 ft 6 inches ( 18.44 m). Distance for a home run is 242 ft ( 73.76 m)


From the Graph:

 A Zombie takes 30 seconds to run to first base or 122 seconds to make a home run!!!

Check: This time look at the table above.

That’s 2 minutes people!!!!! He is safe as long as a Zombie is fielding.
