    trying to write "Disney World Math Walk/Trail" for 3rd- and 8th- grade girls to do while at DW Sept. 2012; live in Indiana; can't go ahead of time to explore the options!; any ideas? locations of tessellations?; math history; number sense? sales

    Hi Jane!

    I suggest visiting the independent website VacationFieldGuides.com.  The author, Miss Cook, has done a great job creating learning challenges for young children.  This might help you in your endeavor. 

    Otherwise, some ideas that come to mind include:

    • Timing ride vehicles to see how long an attraction takes on average
    • Using the above to calculate the number of guests that can enjoy an attraction in an hour
    • Timing transactions at a food vendor cart and calculating how many guests are served in an hour and in a day
    • Calculating the distance between various attractions
    • Estimating the attendance in the park by counting the number of guests in a certain area and then multiplying by the size of a park
    I hope this helps.  Please write back with more questions!
