Frisbee Math

October 14, 2015

there’s an ultimate frisbee tournament today.  We took a break from indoor math to go watch the frisbee game, and do some math at the field. 

 we estimated the dimensions of a frisbee using objects of known size.  Since we don’t have rulers in our pockets, we used shoes which have their length in cm written inside.

We also estimated the perimeter of the fence around the field, we looked at the slopes of the stairs and bleachers, and compared the areas of the frisbee field with the scoring zones.
