This month’s DreamBox Activity Calendar highlights some things about July that may actually surprise you! You’ll find fun ways to celebrate math in everything from macaroni to merry-go-rounds and even the moon. Towards the end of the month, we also give a well-deserved shout out to Amelia Earhart, the first female aviator (AKA aviatrix) to fly solo across the Atlantic – talk about independence! In addition to amazing courage, determination, and confidence, Amelia’s solo trip required some crazy math skills too. Her landmark flight took 20 hours and 40 minutes to complete and she couldn’t have done it without accurately calculating the distance and speed beforehand. Imagine that!
