Why are There So Many Letters in Math? (Grades: All)
Big Question: This course will focus on the derivation of many mathematical formulas students use often in their classes.
Description: You ever wonder where “A-squared plus B-squared equals C-squared” came from? Or how we got the volume of a sphere to be “Four-Thirds times Pi-R-Cubed”? Ready to find out? In this course we will cover the derivation of many common mathematical formulas and equations. We also will go over tricks that help students memorize some of these equations easier for math tests in school and standardized tests.
