Pirate Math: Developing Mathematical Reasoning with Games and Puzzles
What does coordinate geometry have to do with pirates? Plenty, lads and lassies! Use your problem-solving skills to find polyominoes in rectangular, polar, and even spherical coordinate systems where you will locate an actual sunken ship. Teach students about Transformational Geometry (Rotations, Reflections, and rigid Transformations) while playing games (dare we say it?) that align with the Common Core State Standards.
Pirate Math also features cryptography to decipher secret pirate messages and Euclidean constructions to locate buried treasure. Michael Serra combines the challenge of mathematics with the adventure of pirates.
Teachers, International Talk Like A Pirate Day is a fun way to show your playful side while teaching mathematics
Ahoy matey! Fear not mathematics. Build ye thinking skills, learn ye coordinates, and a smarter pirate ye will be!
