“Lucky” by Emma.
I found this four leaf clover in my yard along with 17 others. According to research, it is a one in five thousand chance of finding one. I guess our yard defies those odds.
“Multiplication Skittles” by Ambika.
This is a picture of skittles that are arranged in a certain way to make them look like a multiplication table. It is also very colorful and vibrant which gives it a good look for math. The picture is also taken from an angle, to show that not everything needs to be straight and in-line in order for it to look beautiful. Just like skittles, just like people, just like math. Math comes in all sorts of directions and uses millions of numbers, and they are all different, yet alike.
“Mystical Coins: Math and Money” by Arya.
A stunning image captured of an organized coin collection in the glistening sunlight. This image demonstrates the mathematical concepts of organization, money, patterns, angles, shadows, and reflection. It fully captures how math is essential to our daily life, for we use money everyday.
“Circle of Elephants” by Ava.
Math is an elephant’s two ears, one trunk, four feet, many members of their herd, few babies, 50 gallons of water a day, 12-18 hours eating, 200-600 lbs of food per day, and one heart. Math is the circle mothers make to protect their babies, and the arcs of water made when playing in a puddle. Math is everywhere and connects everything.
