We Are Back with the Trek

Math Trek that is. We tried it the first time last spring and loved it. Unfortunately, we kept missing new treks and then these math scavenger hunts were put on hold by the organizers. So I was very happy to see an announcement for a new trek in February.

This one was called Math in a Machine. We got to go to a ridiculously cool Frantz Automotive shop.

Coincidentally, a few days before the trek, we picked up a bunch of books about simple machines. Things just work out that way. So M had some very basic knowledge about incline planes, pulleys, wheels and such.

At the shop we saw a few of those and plenty of other cool things. M got totally into the scavenger hunt and after a while completely took over the camera.
