Let’s Hear it for Math!

Our Crazy 8’s Math Club was at it again, this time exploring sound! We compared lengths and made sound with straws of different lengths.  We noticed the relationship between the length of the straw and the pitch of the sound made with it.  The longer the straw, the lower the sound! We ordered the straws by length and assembled them into pan pipes.  We even used a giant sound meter to see how loud we could get and used subtraction to compare the decibels! Whoa…that’s a lot of math!
