Most of the articles believe pi is actually part of the design of the pyramids through the use of a circle. Phi, however, was likely unknown by the Egyptians at the time of the building of the great pyramids; that phi appears in the dimensions, appears to result not from the original design but due to its , that phi, appears due show up “after the fact” due to its own mathematical properties and relationship to pi. Notice that you can construct a right angled triangle with sides, 1 square root of phi and hypotenuse phi. See attached picture. This mathematical characteristic likely have given rise to phi hiding in the dimensions of the great pyramids. But nobody knows for sure. A few links to a discussion (none endorsed by NumbersAlive!) follow. Do your own research and know that there is a lot written on this topic!

Happy e-Day: February 7!

Preview of NumbersAlive!

NumbersAlive! includes learning tools (books, plush number characters, games, puzzles, and more), out-of-school activities and programming. We use the arts and real-world adventures to encourage children to observe and speak about numbers in their own environments! This establishes a solid knowledge foundation for STEM academic subjects. Team Ten, led by Zero the Hero, accompanies The Numbers Lady and children on innovative, interpersonal, and interactive global education quests. They discover numerical applications and develop concepts of the scientific method. The learning adventure begins now!

NumbersAlive! is thrilled to announce their entry in the Betty White Unites Exhibit at Zenith Gallery in Washington, DC

Rebecca Klemm and Ruth E. Green created Betty White: Paint by NumbersAlive! which was in the show with 20 other artists at the Zenith Gallery in Washington, DC.

NumbersAlive! in Action

Numeracy activity: counting clouds. Discuss how count and what is required to count clouds. Defining the unit to be counted is fundamental. 1+1 is not always 2–what is 1 apple + 1 orange? Understanding units prepares concept of common denominator. #units #numeracy #addition
Geometry lesson: select a US state and look at the Congressional District map. Discuss shapes & their closeness to a circle, interference of natural and human-made structures. Compare population/voting age population of each district. #redistricting #gerrymander #congress
Fun but perhaps disturbing illustration which can serve as opening discussion/activity about drawing voting districts and meaning of “fairness.” Such are issues I addressed in major legal matters. Not simple! #fair #redistricting #gerrymander https://t.co/afQsy1qItN numbersalive photo
