Halloween Math Activities

Turn the Halloween season into an opportunity to do some math activities! In this module, you'll find a clever collection of arithmetic, algebra, and geometry activities.

  1. Geometry activity: Watch a video about how spiders build webs and analyze the result geometrically. Students build polygon-based web designs in this hands-on activity.
  2. Algebra activity: Going to the pumpkin patch? Use different sized pumpkins on this data-gathering activity, where students measure diameters and circumferences and graph the results. 
  3. Arithmetic activity: Two addictive divisibility games based on whack-a-mole.

VIDEO: Geometry Applications: Polygons, Segment 1: Introduction

The Pentagon is one of the most famous polygon-shaped buildings in the world. But why was this shape chosen over a more straightforward quadrilateral shape? We briefly explore the properties of pentagons and use this as a way of introducing the key concepts throughout the program.

VIDEO: Geometry Applications: Polygons, Segment 2: Properties of Polygons

In the ancient city of Marrakesh polygons are on display. As part of the Islamic tile work prevalent throughout the Middle Ages, Marrakesh provides an opportunity to explore the properties of polygons, and how these properties are taken advantage of in the intricate designs found throughout this fascinating city.
