Movies, Math, and More Monday, August 17

Hello everybody, and welcome to Movies, Math, and More Monday!

It looks like we’ll be light on the Movie part this week as we focus on getting outdoors, but we promise it’s totally worth it!

Let’s kick off the week with Kenzie visiting a cool Dunn County outdoor mystery location. Students, can you tell us where she is? (Yes, students get a point for taking a guess!)

Then, Jennifer travels to a few more mystery locations nearby. Students, can you tell us where you think she is? (1 point for each location) Here’s the first location!

And here is Jennifer’s second location.

Mystery Locations will be revealed in the Thursday Slideshow.

Bonus math questions. Get an extra point each for answering these questions:

  • Geometry term question: If you’re out in nature, it’s not uncommon to see a beehive.  Don’t look inside to find out, but can you say what shape the honeycombs inside are made of? 

  • Kenzie floated down the river at a speed of 3.5 miles per hour for 4.5 hours. Jennifer kayaked down that same river at a speed of 6.4mph for 2.8 hours.  Who traveled farther, and how far did she go?

Lots of point opportunities today! Students, to send us your answers, you can fill out the message form on the Contact page above or send an email to any YEP advisor. All our email addresses are on the Contact page as well. However we get your answers, we’ll make sure you get your points.

Thanks, and have a great day,

The YEP Team

Andy, Jennifer, Kathy, and Kenzie
