Good health is one of those things that we donít really notice until we get sick or injured, and then we really miss it. Like mathematics, health consists of many components; we are going to explore a few of them.

These mathematics activities focus on 1) assessing the nutritional value of fast food, 2) analyzing the numbers associated with our heart, and 3) looking at how medicines affect our bodies over time. Hope you are fit and ready to exercise your brain on these activities.
