Mathematical Lens: Woodstock Revisited

Mathematics Teacher, v103 n4 p246-250 Nov 2009
Bethel Woods Center for the Arts is a performing arts venue that includes the Woodstock Festival grounds in Sullivan County, New York. The center is adjacent to the original preserved site where visitors can see the historic field where hundreds of thousands of rock music lovers gathered in August 1969. In this article, students analyze a photograph of the Bethel Woods Center to solve mathematical questions related to the images captured in the photograph. Measuring three-dimensional shapes, solving triangles, and calculating average rates, and compound interest are all involved in the analysis. (Contains 2 tables and 1 figure.)
