Math Olympiad Team Explores Mobius Band

This morning, the Warren Street Math Olympiad team learned about Mathematician August Ferdinand Möbius and his famous Möbius loop/band/strip.

The team guessed how many surfaces and edges in cylinders and the loop, and then completed the task of creating one!

Following Mr. Chamberlain’s suggestion, Mrs. Connelie went home and made a cylinder and Möbius loop out of Fruit by the Foot. Snacks will never be served the same way again!

Special thanks to Mr. Chamberlain and Mr. Novotny for their guest instruction today! What a treat for us all!
