What does coordinate geometry have to do with pirates? Plenty, lads and lassies! Use your problem solving skills to find polyominoes in rectangular, polar, and even spherical coordinate systems where you will locate an actual sunken ship. Pirate Math features cryptography to decipher secret pirate messages and Euclidean constructions to locate buried treasure. Michael Serra combines the challenge of mathematics with the adventure of pirates.
Take a journey to sun-drenched tropical islands in search of pirate booty. With a map in your hand, follow clues and solve puzzles, developing your mathematical reasoning skills along the way. Arrr, what glorious adventures, the thrill of using math to find pirate treasure!
Teachers, International Talk Like A Pirate Day is a fun way to show your playful side while teaching mathematics (dare we say it?) that align with the Common Core State Standards. Ahoy matey! Fear not mathematics. Build ye thinking skills, learn ye coordinates, and a smarter pirate ye will be!
Pirate Math has hints, answers, and over 450 games and puzzles (black and white text ) which focus on Coordinate Geometry, Transformations, and more! For easy use, the book is printed in a lay-flat 8.5" x 11" format.
