Look for patterns, symmetry and other math principles when you are on a field trip

When you go to a museum, look for patterns.  Our students are headed to the Morikami Museum in Boca Raton, Fla., and we hope this announcement will bring new focus on math in the real world.

"Students are encouraged to bring photos to show Mr. Mac because he visited the Morikami 24 years ago and he'd like to see what you find is interesting.  He'd like to ask you to describe the patterns and the math that you see in the grounds of the museum.   This offer is for all participants in the field trip, even teachers, and even if the students are not in my class.  Mr. Mac wants to encourage the hunting for patterns.  He has a blog and he'll post their photos if they want to show them to students in other schools."
