Home School (Ages 9-14): Math in Nature
October 25, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm$10
If you were a frog, how far could you leap? How can we estimate the height of a tree? Is there a way to tell how old a tree is without cutting it down and counting its rings? How much grass does a groundhog need to eat to store up enough energy for the long winter? These questions and more will be answered as naturalists lead students in a number of math-in-nature activities with the help of measuring tools, formulas, games, and observation skills.
9-14 Year Olds will delve into forestry and calculate board feet, tree height based on geometry and what various tree measurements can tell us.
For all sessions, registration deadline is 48 hours prior to the class. This is done to allow for ALNC to plan for small group sizes and staffing needs. Please call to inquire about space if planning to drop in, but realize that space may not be available if less than 48 hours is given.
