Natural Environment

It is hard to imagine a more richly resources stage for learning than that of nature. Science and mathematics are inseparable partners and offer a wealth of discovery to the learner, whether in the form of measuring activities such as the heights of trees or the flow of water, to the often hidden beauty of shapes in nature or the manifestations of the Fibonacci series. From microscopic life to the highest mountains, mathematics abounds.
