From the Series Math Adventures (Step 2)
Be a stunt performer using your math skills. It’s no ordinary job! Performing high falls on a movie set needs your attention to the grid reference, and fire scenes require some special time-keeping. Spinning a car creates angles at a number of degrees. Skydiving in freefall, you absolutely need to know how many seconds to wait before you open the parachute. Alongside the math are amazing facts about each stunt, some useful tips for help with your math, and answers for when the filming ends!
