Happy Mathgiving

Gracias al seguimiento que hago de algunos blogs en la red, y en concreto a un post que ha compartido mi cuñado en Google Reader, he leido esta tira cómica acerca de las matemáticas y el Thanksgiving day. Me ha parecido graciosa (aunque no espero que lo entendáis). Pulsando la imagen os lleva al artículo original.

Proviene de Spiked Math, Daily Math Webcomic, donde publican viñetas cómicas regularmente relacionadas con las matemáticas. Espero vuestros comentarios.

Thanksgiving Presentation

Brittany talking to the students about Thanksgiving.

Tuesday, November 17, 2009


Hello students,
It´s almost the end of November and that means that Thanksgiving is almost here! I am especially excited this year because my little sister is here in Spain with me and that means that we can celebrate the day together. There will be lots of good food (turkey, cranberry sauce, gravy, stuffing, etc...)
Where I live, the trees are now beginning to shed their leaves and prepare for winter. However, before they do that they put on quite a show with their multi-colored splendor. There are lines of trees with leaves the color of gold. There are also red, orange and yellow colored leaves.
Sometimes when children´s parents are finished raking the leaves in the yard they make a big pile and the children get to jump into it! It is so much fun! I really love this time of year.
So, I hope you will enjoy the Thanksgiving presentation that I have prepared for you. I enjoyed making it. See you soon!

Hypatia of Alexandria and her friends.

Hypatia of Alexandria (370 – 415) was a Greek philosopher who lived in Alexandria (Egypt, Roman Empire). She was the best in mathematics and astronomy in her time.
Hypatia wrote about Euclid (300 BC), who also had lived in Alexandria seven centuries before. He was a Greek mathematician know as the "Father of Geometry." He wrote a book called “Elements” which has been the most influential work in the history of mathematics. It is about geometry, perspective, conic sections, spherical geometry, number theory, etc.
She knew Aristarchus of Samos (310-230 BC) theories about the heliocentric model of the solar system, with the Sun in the center of the universe.
Hypatia also wrote about Eratosthenes of Cyrene (195 BC), who was a very good friend of Arquimedes. Eratosthenes was a Greek mathematician, geographer and astronomer. He was the first who exposed a system of latitude and longitude to represent the Earth. He also calculated the circumference of the Earth with great accuracy. Do you want to know how?
But this tradition had begun with Pythagoras of Samos (570- 495 BC), a Greek philosopher known as "the father of numbers” He was a great mathematician and scientist. Do you know what the Pythagorean teorema is?

Who was Hypatia?

Hipatia de Alejandría (370 – 415).

La película de Amenábar ha sacado de la oscuridad a la figura de Hipatia, una intelectual muy importante de finales del s. IV y principios del V, que desarrolló su labor en Alejandría (Egipto) en la fase final del imperio Romano.

También se han publicado últimamente algunas novelas que tratan la vida de esta filósofa de la antigüedad desde perspectivas más rigurosamente históricas o menos, dependiendo de los casos (El sueño de Hipatia, Tormenta sobre Alejandría, etc.).

Hipatia fue profesora, experta en filosofía griega, científica excelente que sobresalió en matemáticas y astronomía. Conocía perfectamente la filosofía antigua y estaba especializada en estudios lógicos y ciencias exactas.

Now you know something about Hypatia of Alexandria (370 – 415), she was a very good Greek philosopher who lived in Alexandria (Egypt, Roman Empire). She was great in mathematics and astronomy. If you want to know something else about this excellent woman, watch the following video:

Hallowe'en (Part 1)

Do you know Michael Jackson? He died recently and he was front page in all newspapers and magazines and news programmes. In the 1980s he was the "King of Pop" and one of his songs, "Thriller", became a real hit and a number 1 all around the world. "Thriller" is played every year when Hallowe'en comes. You may have seen the film already, but do you know what it is about?
Switch off the lights, turn up the volume and enjoy it!

And now, some practice. Here is the link to the exercises we couldn't do last week because the Internet wasn't working. Revise the vocabulary and do the exercises called "Riddles", " I spy with my little eye..." and the "Crossword".

Have fun!

Did you ever imagine you would have an American penpal? Think about it.

Can you tell me why it is a good idea to have a penpal from an English-speaking country?

La feria

Es una pena que la feria dure tan poco tiempo pero es una semana muy guay.
Lo qe mas relacionamos nosotros la feria con las mates son:
  • el techo de los coches de tope, que es rectangular y tiene formas triangulares
  • la barca: es triangular y simétrica.

Feria Matemática

Todos los profesores de matemáticas os dirán que su asignatura está por todas partes, y que tiene mucha aplicación en la vida real. Yo creo que tienen razón, pero a veces tenemos que fijarmos un poco para darnos cuenta. Os propongo el siguiente tema:

Let's try to find some relationship between Maths and Montoro Festival. I can imagine some examples like geometric figures, prices,... If you want, you can also add some images.

Of course, everybody can comment the posts.
