Do YOU have what it takes to build your math muscle?
Shadow Fractions: Experiment with scale by using a bright-white LED to cast shadows of the objects you place on the grid table. Each object is copied at three proportional heights, so it's a perfect way to see how the shadows of these objects grow and shrink.
Partner Motion: Curious to see how your rate of motion affects a graph on a screen? By walking back and forth, slowly and quickly, you can create graphs of your motions. Challenge a friend to see how your movement changes over time, see the direct proportional slopes from your actions, and think about how your rates compare.
Balance and Imbalance: Try hanging weights on different types of balances to get an intuitive feel with ratios and proportions. There are three types of balances to experiment with: (1) a traditional math education balance, (2) a balance with a circular scale, and (3) a multi-armed balance with a high degree of complexity and open-endedness.
Drawing With Gears: Sit down at a mechanical drawing table where you can draw harmonic patterns using proportional wheels. Choose which gears to activate and watch as patterns begin to repeat on the page. With this simple tool, you can produce complex, circular drawings while exploring ratios and proportions.
