The Games of the XXXI Olympiad, or Rio 2016, will take place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil from August 5th -21st , 2016.
Check out this week’s free activity for secondary students, and older intermediate students. A look at the Olympic circles in light of the 4 Color Theorem, a map of the world and tracking the path of the torch are but a couple of the offerings suggested in this short activity packet.
Current events are a proven way to engage students in authentic mathematics!
Many questions can be posed for students to think about during this time – based upon their level in school.
