8.3 Extensions and Further Exploration

In this section, we will try to extend our new knowledge through investigation of some of the mathematical content that was discussed throughout the unit. You might find some of these activities to be quite challenging. If you get stuck, feel free to discuss them with a friend. Don’t panic; just keep going.

The goal of this section is to expose you to more types of math, and to help you realize just how often you already solve math problems in daily life. Remember, if you believe that you don’t have the time to spend further exploring these topics, this is a section that you could treat as optional.

Now, get ready to learn the secrets of art and nature, and even bake some delicious cookies!
