Math Links for Week Ending Mar 15, 2013

Super Ultimate Graphing Challenge is a very nice game based app that looks at distance time graphs. Its not an app for the iPad but for the computer (its flash based so unless you have something like Rover you won't be able to use it on the iPad). But it does use the game interface really well. And of course, heed the warning: "you may learn physics if you play this game"

Have you tried the app 4 Pics 1 Word (iTunes, Android)? Its not bad but one blogger has started to create a math edition. This would be a great way to introduce vocabulary to the math class (any class really). Check it out.

Great data from Canadian Schools, Air Canada Jazz Pilots and Chris Hadfield on the ISS regarding Neutron Radiation. Thanks to Sue Di Laudo for this one

I thought this would be a great resource for a data management class. Its from the radio show RadioLab and this is an audio podcast about science. In this episode they use data from counting words to diagnose Alzheimer's. Specifically in Agatha Christie. Then they take it further to suggest that this could even be used as a indicator of increased chance of Alzheimer's by reading essays you have written at the age of 18. Very cool use of data
