SIMPLE EXAMPLE OF LET THE CHILD LEARNS REAL LIFE MATH:
Which Pizza You Prefer 2- 8” Round Or 1- 12” Round?
( USE OF GEOMETRY IN OUR DAILY LIFE)
One Day my friend and I ordered a pizza at the restaurant. We were pretty hungry and the pizza was cheap just of Rs. 100/-, so we ordered a 12″ round pizza for the two of us. A little while later, the waiter came by with an 8″ round pizza, explaining that another waiter had mistakenly given our 12” pizza to someone else. He said we could have this 8″ pizza now, and he’d have the cook throw another 8″ pizza in the oven for us and we will charge same Rs.100/- for this two 8” pizza. He claimed that we’d be getting more total pieces of pizza, so this was a good deal for us.
After doing some quick mental geometrical math
Area of a circle = pi*radius². Two 8″ pizzas = 2*pi*(4)² = 32*pi square inches, One 12″ pizza = pi*(6)² = 36*pi square inches), I told him we’d be missing out on over 12 square inches of pizza, so we’d rather just have the one 12″ pizza. He complied, and as a nice bonus (probably because he was impressed by my quick geometry skills),
He let us have the extra 8″ pizza anyways. Score one for geometry!
CALCULATION OF DEAL OF OUR PIZZA-
2 PCS- 8” DIAMETER PIZZA COST Rs. 100/-
1 PCS- 12” DIAMETER PIZZA COST Rs. 100/-
ANSWER CALCULATION: Area of Circle = pi*radius². Two 8″ pizzas = 2*pi*(4)² = 32*pi square inches, One 12″ pizza = pi*(6)² = 36*pi square inches, which is more, so select one 12” round pizza, not two 8” round pizza.
We know that math is all around us and we live in practical mathematical world if your child in future will going to be an Architect, Engineer, Scientist, Products designer, Fashion designer ,Graphics designer, Astronomer, Robotics engineer and so on in any field He or she must have to have visual practical knowledge of size, shape, space, measurement, colour, all concepts of geometrical Mathematics.
We have infinite Hands on cognitive and curriculum activities from 3 year age till all age, so let’s join your child with the Academy of foundation Geometry & colour to learn more real world Math at “GEOMAITRI”.
