Math Problems with Ghosts and Monsters
STAY TUNED, COMING SOON!
by Rakesh Khanna
99+ middle & high school level math problems!
Practice your math skills while learning to protect yourself against zombies, vampires, cosmic fungi, rampaging kaiju, penanggalans, aswangs, pishtacos, and other diabolical creatures from every corner of the globe!
Master the science of snake venom, demon-raising candles, alien parasites, and necrophagous insects… all while you brush up on your algebra, trig, and geometry!
Graph the mass increase of a people-eating blob from outer space!
Model the periodic fluctuations of a haunted house’s cold spot!
Calculate how much tranquilizer you need to keep a zombie sedated!
AND MUCH MORE!
Great for people who...
• love horror and love math
• love horror and hate math (but need to practice)
• love math and don’t know enough about ghosts and monsters
• interact frequently with the undead
(Parental Advisory: While some of these math problems are campy and silly, others have a moderate amount of gore -- and a few of them actually kind of scared us while we were writing them. Proceed with caution!)
Check the Math Problems with Stuff blog for sample problems.
Math Problems with Ghosts and Monsters will also be available as an ebook
