10:34 AM | PYTHAGOREAN THEOREM EXPLORATION 2 (CUT-OUTS)
Pythagorean Theorem Cutouts 2Here is the second part of the previous post (Pythagorean Exploration 1 cut-outs). The first one uses the other two sides (a and b) of the right triangle to form the sides of the square pattern. This time, the hypotenuse (c) will be used for the sides of the square. You may use the discussion in Pythagorean Exploration 2 as a guide. You may download this template for personal use and for your math class activity. The length of the sides on the second page […]

3:00 AM | Video – The Scientific Way To Arrange Eggs In A Carton (Optimal Weight Distribution)
How do you remove eggs from a carton? Do you select eggs haphazardly, or do you select the eggs more carefully so the weight is evenly spread out? The obvious reason to care is that a bad arrangement can make the carton wobbly and thereby more likely to be dropped. I made a video that […]

12:15 PM | Watch out! I’m a blue whale and I’m about to land on you!
I don’t know why this question popped into my head, but it’s been sitting there for the past week and showing no signs of moving on. Suppose an enemy of mine threw a friendly blue whale at me. Being a friendly whale, it makes the blue-whale-noise equivalent of “DUCK!” to warn me it’s coming. How quickly... Read more »

4:35 PM | Problem From Heck # 93: Thanksgiving Edition
Thanksgiving is approaching and, as we all know, this is not a fun time for a turkey.Last week, at Isaac's Turkey Farm, the turkeys were led on their final walk down Turkey Lane. Turkey Lane (see picture below) follows the path of a parabola ($y=x^2$) with the farm located at $\left ( 0,0 \right )$ and the slaughter house located at $\left ( 2,4 \right )$, where $x$ and $y$ are measured in miles. This year, one turkey decided to escape. At the point located 1 mile north and 1 mile east of the f […]

3:54 PM | Perfect numbers and Mersenne Primes
“One would be hard put to find a set of whole numbers with a more fascinating history and more elegant properties surrounded by greater depths of mystery—and more totally useless—than the perfect numbers.”—Martin GardnerWhile it is true that perfect numbers may not be as useful or evident in our environment as the Fibonacci series discussed last time, in terms of enigma and unresolved mysteries, nothing can probably come close to the magical perfect numbers. But first of all, what is […]
