Looking for reflections on a late afternoon photo shoot - found them and a hungry mallard, too! The concentric circles, though, are what caught my eye!

Mathematical concepts are often evident in nature and in our daily environment. I often think about how much learning is done (and could be done) out of the classroom...and I know there are specific field trips or activities that focus on that connection. But are we helping our students learn to see that on their own? Do they seek out those learning connections on a daily basis? I would guess there are a lot of missed opportunities for meta-learning, but I think images can help to springboard that type of cognition. Garden of Hope & Courage, Naples, FL

  1. The water reminds me of Monet's paintings. I like the way the duck is so clear against the rippled background.
