Here is a summary of our holiday resources:

  • Math in the News: Issue 107. In this issue of Math in the News we explore logarithmic functions to model the thawing of frozen turkeys. We look at USDA guidelines to determine data points and use a graphing calculator to create mathematical models.

  • Whack-a-Mole-Style Games. In these whack-a-mole style games, whack the turkeys with the correct type of numbers to get 5 points. But be careful! Whack ┬áthe wrong turkey and lose 2 points.

There are 8 games:
