This post can also be found on the Our World, Our Numbers blog. Along with this information about U.S. landmarks, you’ll also be able to learn about landmarks from other countries around the world. Check back next week as each class posts about a new topic!

Welcome to Avery’s U.S. Tours! We’ll be your guides today as we take you across the United States to some of its most historic, famous landmarks. So, buckle your seat belts, hold on to your hats, and enjoy the journey!

Okay, well, if we were really able to take you across the United States to see all of our amazing landmarks, that’s probably how we’d start our tour. Since we’re unable to though, we’ll instead share them with you on here!

Did you know that you can tie math into every landmark? You can try to determine how old they are. You can try to figure out how tall they are. You can try to calculate how much area they take up. You could determine what shapes they’re made out of. It’s incredible how math is tied into almost anything you can think of!

We created a presentation to share some of our landmarks with you. Throughout the presentation there are different math questions based upon the facts. See if you can find the answer to some of the problems. Share the problem you tried as well as your answer down in the comment section!

This presentation is slightly different to ones you may be used to. In this presentation, you can sometimes navigate down, to the right, to the left, or up. You’ll see four blue arrows in the bottom-right hand corner of our presentation. If an arrow is dark blue, it means that you can move the presentation in that direction. You can use your mouse, the arrow keys on your keyboard, or if you’re on a tablet, swipe in the direction you want to move. Start by moving to the right, read the first slide, and then move down to find out the answer! Continue moving to the right to work through the entire thing!


Did you find the answer to any of the math problems in the presentation?

Have you ever been to any of the landmarks we mentioned?
