Teachers and students from around the country have created Math Trails or Math Paths in their schools and communities. Here are a few that you can follow relating to places in north-central Indiana.
45 to 60 minutes to walk the trail and solve some of the questions, 15 to 30 additional minutes to discuss solutions and compare results.
Many thanks to Kathleen Caine for introducing Math Trails to our community. She created the questions and brochure for the Downtown South Bend Math Trail.
Andrea Vollrath created the science questions for the Rickey Trail, and Amanda Serenevy created the math questions. Laura Moran Walton and the Community Foundation of St. Joseph County obtained the photos and created the brochure for the Rickey Trail.
Nancy Watreas created the math questions for the Egg Stravaganza Trail. Michele Kastner of Down Town South Bend, Incorporated (DTSB) created the brochure and organized the event.
