Roadside Geometry
$6.99
Roadside Geometry
In this module, students analyze the geometric properties of road signs. This includes studying triangular, quadrilateral, and other polygon forms in such familiar signs as the stop sign, the yield sign, and many other examples.
Why Do Rivers Meander?
$6.99
Why Do Rivers Meander?
Rivers twist and turn as they make their way to the sea. Why does this happen and how can this be explained mathematically? In this module we look at the geometry of meandering rivers. In the process we'll discover some fascinating numerical relationships. Go to https://media4math.com/M4M-modules to see all Classroom Modules.
Archer Fish
$6.99
The Archer Fish, Geometry, and Physics
The Archer Fish earns its name because it accurately sprays jets of water at insect prey, knocks them into the water, and has a quick meal. The ability to accurately do this has to overcome several geometric and physical challenges. In this module students explore these challenges in more detail.

Why Do Elephants Have Wrinkled Skin?
Have you noticed how wrinkled an elephant's skin is? What purpose does it serve and what does math have to do with explaining this phenomenon? Well, the explanation for an elephant's wrinkled skin is almost entirely a math story.  Go to https://media4math.com/M4M-modules to see all Classroom Modules.
Castles
$6.99
Why Are Castles So Tall?
Why are castles so tall? In this module students explore indirect measurement by seeing how simple angle measure, height measurements, and tangent ratios can be used to calculate distances. The context of castles provides a historically relevant military purpose for the tallness of castles. Go to https://media4math.com/M4M-modules to see all Classroom Modules.
Applications of Linear Functions: Circumference vs. Diameter
$6.99
Applications of Linear Functions: Circumference vs. Diameter
As the size of a circle changes, so does the size of the diameter and that of the circumference. In fact, there is a linear relationship between these two measures. This relationship can be modeled with a linear function. In this module students will study this linear function and examine its properties, including the fact that the slope of this function is π itself.

Reflection and Symmetry: Da Vinci's Mirror Writing
$6.99
Reflection and Symmetry: Da Vinci's Mirror Writing
In this module explore reflection and symmetry in the context of Leonardo Da Vinci's mirror writing. Many of Da Vinci's handwritten notes were written in reverse script that could only be read correctly in a mirror. This provides an opportunity to explore geometric reflections, but also the symmetric properties of certain letters of the alphabet.
