oh cool! That's math!?
Welcome to the part of my webpage that features different aspects of mathematics! Most of ya'll know that I am pretty darn nerdy when it comes to my favorite subject so I have compiled this page to share those nerdy finds with ya'll! If you have any questions about something feel free to ask me because, as you know, I love talking about math. :)

Starry Night?I doodle with stars ALL the time...and I knew I couldn't be the only person to have discovered this awesomeness. Luckily, I found this little gem when meandering the internet one day! This wonderful girl filmed herself explaining it all. Listen close because she talks fast!

Hypatia (HIpayShUh)Did you know, for many years, women weren't allowed to study mathematics? It was considered a privilege for men, only. Click the button below to read a bit about one of the first female mathematicians in history. I'll give you a sneak peek: her story doesn't end well.

A Wonderful mixture:


Möbius strip  Mario styleHave you ever heard of a Möbius Strip!? They are a super cool surface in mathematics. It is a onesided surface created from a twosided surface (like a piece of paper). More information and directions for creating your own are listed below. Play around with it a bit!

may the odds be ever in your favor
Mathematics is EVERYWHERE. I utilized The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins to teach my students about probability this past semester. We used the books to aid in learning permutations and combinations (i.e number of orders or arrangements the Tributes may die in), basic probability (i.e. being drawn to become a Tribute), chances of survival, and fairness based in game theory! I found this website (click the image to see the website) that supported my decision to work the popular series into my lessons.

Sacred Geometry + Sound FrequenciesYou might be asking, "What is sacred geometry?" The answer to your question is, briefly, described using vidoes and descriptions at the website listed in the below link. In the video to the left, sand and a speaker are used to demonstrate how specific sound vibrations create patterns described throughout the study of sacred geometry. The frequencies keep getting faster (higher, very annoying sound), so I would highly suggest having the volume control handy.
