Homeschool Resource Number Gossip

Happy Monday Morning, As we begin a new week I wanted to bring you a new Homeschool Resource this one is from Number Gossip.

I thought this site would be fun for Charlie as he can see what is inside specific numbers so we would like to invite you to come and join us and see what we find out.

Age Range: All (All grades; children with parental supervision)

This website is all about a mathematician named Tanya Khovanova having fun with numbers. She has worked tirelessly to create a terrific search engine that will fascinate you with the results it produces.

Just type your favorite number (or any number up to 9999) into the search engine, and within seconds the results will identify every unique, rare, and common property that is true of the number in question (meticulously researched by Khovanova and friends).

When you get to the site, type in a number (the day of your birth, for example) and find out which of the many properties archived here applies. For instance, discover if the number you selected has any of these properties:

  • abundant
  • apocalyptic power
  • cake
  • cube
  • deficient
  • evil
  • Fibonacci
  • hungry
  • lucky
  • narcissistic
  • odious
  • palindrome
  • repunit
  • sociable
  • tetrahedral
  • twin
  • untouchable
  • weird
Are these words you would “normally” use to describe a number? If you’re confused, click on the property and discover what it means. In all likelihood, it will get those synapses firing and springboard you into fascinating conversations about math and its usefulness in the world around you.

Be sure to click on any linked words within the descriptions to learn more astounding, fun and fascinating facts about numbers and math.

Please keep in mind that we have NOT reviewed the websites linked to the number property descriptions.

Glenda, Charlie and David Cates
