## Mr. Pooler's Geometry AdventurePresentation Transcript

• Mathematics is Everywhere, Just Look around you and See
• The Adventures of Mr. and Mrs. Pooler, in search of Math in the Most Unlikely Places.
• We join our two Math adventurers the Pooler’s on Summer Vacation at Niagara Falls trying to relax after both working in Math fields. Hoping to get away from Math and banking the Pooler’s try to relax when suddenly . . .
• Mr. Pooler began to think about all of the mathematics he was not thinking about. I mean this was his vacation. There couldn’t be math anywhere around here . . . Or could there??? In this picture there are several geometric and mathematical ideas being displayed. What are they???
• What does Mr. P’s Shirt say?? It isn’t math oriented. . . Or is it?? Look at all of these buildings. See any familiar figures?? Can you find any other examples of math in this picture??
• Next the Pooler’s went for a ride on The Maid of the Mist where there couldn’t possibly be any Math. . . Or could there???
• Just as the Pooler’s didn’t think there could be any Math the ship’s Captain came over the loud speaker and announced that Niagara falls sent 109,000cubic feet of water through the Robert Moses Generation Station per second. . . Without thinking Mrs. Pooler said, “Wow!!, I wonder how much water that is per day? Find out how much water that is per day for Mrs. Pooler?
• That is just 9,417,600,000 cubic feet per day
• After the Falls, Mrs. Pooler thought it would be safer to take a ride on a Merry – Go – Round. There Couldn’t Possibly be any Math Here. . . Just then Mrs. Pooler spotted a sign on the wall that said this Merry-go-round makes one revolution every 7 seconds. This ride will last 2.5 minutes. How many revolutions did Mrs. Pooler do if she paid for the ride twice?
