MR. HARTSHORN'S MATH CLASS!


 

  • Math in the movies: Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson are given a five gallon jug and a three gallon jug, and must put exactly four gallons of water on a scale to keep a bomb from exploding.. How do they do it ? 
     
 
  • One of my goals is to stress the connections between math  and the world we live in.

  • The dartboard picture shown below is an example of two branches of mathematices integrated to solve problems. The branches are Geometry and Probability and the hybrid topic is Geometric probability.


How many triangles do you see?
