It’s Monday, April 18, 2016, and time for Math at ClickSchooling!

 

Recommended Website:

Numberphile

(www.numberphile.com/index.html)

Age Range: Varies (All require parental preview and supervision)

 

This ad-supported website is a collaboration by mathematicians who have recorded “videos about numbers and stuff” to share the wonder of math through interesting activities, funny stories, and challenging puzzles and concepts. The videos were all created by the same innovator who gave us “The Periodic Table of Videos” featured previously on ClickSchooling.

When you get to the site you’ll see a menu of math-themed drawings and symbols, that are clues to the video topic. (Some are more obvious than others.) Click on any one and a new page opens where a video will launch on a math topic such as: 

  • Fibonacci Patterns in Tartan Plaids
  • Safe-Cracking
  • Calculating Pi with Real Pies
  • The Math Problem in the movie, “Good Will Hunting”
  • Rubik’s Cube
  • The Dragon Curve
  • Is Zero an Even Number?
  • Encrypting Large Numbers
  • 5 Platonic Solids
  • Vampire Numbers
  • How to Order 43 Chicken McNuggets
  • Discalculia
  • Tetrahedral Dice
  • The Googol and Googolplex
  • How Big is a Billion?

Select the topics that appeal to the interest and ability level of any given student and enjoy the video presentation.

IMPORTANT: Because some of the presentations are geared for older audiences, and because ads are randomly generated and appear on screen as the videos are launched, parents should preview the videos and supervise Internet activity.
