Number Lovers Rejoice!

Can’t get enough numbers?  Trouble falling aslep because counting sheep is just too darn entertaining?  Check out the NumberADay blog!  Every week day, the Mathematical Association of America posts a new number with images and info about that number’s properties.

Did you know that not only can 199 not be written as a sum of three squares, but it is also the number of steps in the spiral staircase at the Cape May lighthouse?!

These fun facts are a great way to kick start the day’s math class… try writing one on the board or have students take responsibility for researching and reporting on the day’s number of honor!  Enjoy :) HQFFY5KZ7J2R
