The Math of Geography
Our entry is about how mathematics is used in geography. To study and understand geography requires a knowledge of certain mathematical skills. We give examples of situations in which math and geography are used together. Our entry has a problem solving section. Students can solve real and creative geography problems using mathematics. Topics which we cover are longitude and latitude, continental drift, time zones, scale and the four color theorem of map coloring. It is our educational objective to teach other kids about how one subject does not stand by itself, how we need all subjects to understand one. It is also our objective to teach other kids something about the geographic topics which are covered in this web page.
