The “Math by the Month” activities are designed to engage students to think like mathematicians. Students may work on the activities individually or in small groups, or they may be used with the whole class as problems of the week. No solutions are suggested so that students will look to themselves for mathematical justification, thereby developing the confidence to validate their work. This month's activities revolve around water. Water is an incredibly important part of our world. The following activities invite students to connect science and mathematics as they investigate water's properties.


Readers are encouraged to submit problems to be considered for future “Math by the Month” columns to Margaret Williams. Receipt of problems will not be acknowledged; however, problems selected for publication will be credited to the author.
