Well, I'm pretty bummed that I can't imbed pictures here directly. I'm looking into other blog options and thinking of just posting links here to blogs elsewhere. It was certainly a short-lived adventure here but I need to be able to include pictures in
my blogs. Perhaps if WyzAnt ever adds that feature I'll come back here.
I'll post an update...

Hi again. I thought I'd start with something simple. Here's an everyday application of math, science, and graphing skills that I think you'll find useful. Enjoy!
A while back, the Tap Dancing Engineer was visiting some tap dancing friends in Canada. We ended up talking about recent strange weather, which of course led to a discussion of converting between temperature scales.

Hi! Tap Dancing Engineer here.
I've decided to start a blog about the silly (and interesting) math and science things I do in my every day life. This is a fun a way for me to show how math and science can be applied to our lives outside of the classroom.
I've got a few ideas to get me started and I'll try to do this weekly, but no promises. I do a lot of nerdy math/science...

Well, we know enough information to make some equations and solve them.
Things we know:
1) 52 legs total
2) Ducks have 2 legs
3) Cows have 4 legs
4) No other legs are being counted
5) 4 more cows than ducks
We have 2 unknowns: # of ducks, we'll call that D, and # of cows,...

I'd need to see the exact question to be sure, but I think the explanation below should help.
Mode should be the same. Whichever # is repeated most often. If you have multiple repetitions of an unknown, it could end up being your mode.
Example A: 2, 4, 5, 3, 4, 6, x, 4, 2 =>...
