Stolen Paintings and Real Life Maths

Last week was a hunting week…

My daughters and I watched as the FBI tried to hunt down a number of stolen masterpieces. And then I went on a hunt for some real life maths experiences. (Where’s all that maths everyone says the world is full of?)

Did the FBI recover the paintings? Were the criminals apprehended? And did I find some maths notes to add to my rather empty looking homeschool records book?

All will be revealed in this week’s podcast!

In episode 49:

  • I talk about the educational value of documentaries and lifestyle TV programs
  • I share some of the Youtube videos we’ve been enjoying
  • I describe how I translate these videos into notes for my homeschool records book
  • I tell you about the real life maths experiences I did eventually hunt down
  • Along the way, I share lots of resources!

I haven’t viewed all the following resources. Some contain adult content. Perhaps you could take a look before giving them to your children if you are concerned.

Art Documentaries on Youtube:

Websites and Articles about Stolen Paintings


Grand Designs

(TV Shows are full of learning experiences!)
Episodes of Grand Designs on Youtube
(Generally, Grand Design is child-friendly. Occasionally, the people involved have very different values and ideas to ours.This could be good or bad depending on the situation!)
