Media Clips - October 2007


October 2007, Volume 101, Issue 3, Page 176

The clips this month focus on problems from a Mensa mini quiz posted on Mensa's website. Topics explored include algebra problems, normal distributions, and rate of return on investments.  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.
