Abstract:
The clips this month focus on weight and mass. The first clip analyzes the weight of prize pumpkins in relation to averages, rate of change, and circumference, and the second clip discusses the volume and weight of clouds. The aim of Media Clips is to provide opportunities to students to analyze items from the media, such as advertisements and newspaper articles, to answer mathematical questions related to the article. The section includes short items from the media that highlight interesting uses or misuses of mathematics that are appropriate for classroom study. Media Clips is a regular department of Mathematics Teacher.
