Indian Elephants Know Angles

Indian Elephants Know Angles


Even though they don’t have any bones in their trunks (they have 150,000+ muscles instead), Indian Elephants know their angles. They are a sub-species of the Asian Elephant (which is very good at multiplication), so they decided that they would become at geometry. While they are reaching for plants to eat, they think of angles: 360° to a circle, 180° is flat, 90° is a right angle. After eating their 330 lbs of vegetation for the day, they take a good long nap and do it all over again.


  • Students compose angles through addition and subtraction of angle measurements
