We will study the Monarch butterfly during GT Math, making mathematical connections with the Monarch's miraculous life.
Click on the picture of the Monarch to access a very zoomed-in view of a Monarch's wing.
Answer these questions:
1. What is the greatest wingspan of a Monarch - in millimeters?
2. What is the size of the Monarch's hindwing - in meters?
3. To determine the size of a scale on a Monarch's wing, how many places does the decimal have to be moved to covert from a meter - and in which direction will the decimal be moved?
4. Can you convert the size of the carbon atom to centimeters?
