The Math of Tsunamis

While watching the news coverage of the terrible earthquake in Japan and the tsunami that followed, I was awed by the math possibilities. After a little research I found a few math resources for this “teachable moment”:

-A new math formula might predict tsunamis

-A Tweet from a 2010 Tsunami: How fast is it traveling?

-A Wolfram demonstration of the math of tsunamis

-From the NYT: 20 Ways to teach about the disaster in Japan across the curriculum
