A room full of math

Posted by Rebecca Moore - 16 November, 2012

The 4th Grade went to the MathAlive! exhibit at the Space and Rocket Center this past Monday. They had a great time and Mrs. Short's students each wrote a paragraph to tell other students why they should go to exhibit, too.

Here is what they have to say:

Ruby: "It is that kind of thing that before you go, you are like, Ugh, this is going to be so boring! But then when you get there it is totally different than you expected."

Nannette wrote a multicolored review. In purple: "M stands for Magnificent Math," and then, in green, "If you have a math mind, go to Math Alive. If that's still not enough," she continued, switching to a pink pen, "I'll give you even more reasons." These include video games, posing, wake boarding, music, iPads, riding your bike. In blue, she added, that this is a good show for those who don't have Math Minds, too, because it teaches you different ways to do it and it's so much fun."

Maddi calls it "a room full of math made fun."

Several students mentioned how much they enjoyed the snowboarding and skateboarding games. Alex liked a game where you could "sort of spy on people. You have to put coordinates to move the camera."

Anahita liked snowboarding and a camera that takes a picture of you with 20 cameras from all angles and then turns that into a video. "Now go and see it yourself."

"Tick-tock, tick-tock," Walker wrote, "time is running out... this amazing exhibit will leave February 3rd."

MathAlive! will be open until February 3. For more information, visit the U.S. Space & Rocket Center website or MathAlive.com.
