Hershey Park Happy!!

Last week our department took our students on the first ever, math field trip.  Relatively close to us is an amusement park called Hershey Park.  I'm sure you have all heard of Hershey candy and this is that very Hershey company.  You can even go on a tour of a fake chocolate factory (which the small kids love) and get a free piece of candy at the end.

What do Hershey Park and Math have in common?  Thanks to some great people at Hershey Park, I didn't have to make too far of a stretch on that one.  The good people there designate one day each year to a few different disciplines.  Like Math Day, or Physics Day and create a huge packet of problems that the educators can pick from.  Check this out.  55 pages of math awesomeness.

Here are a few pictures to entertain you...
