BigDataFr recommends: Math Challenge: Computing the Average Rotational Speed of Earth

[…] Or of any celestial body. Here I discuss a solution that can be explained to high school students, to get them interested in mathematics, statistics and probabilities. A few interesting related problems further enhance the pedagogical value of this discussion.

I stumbled upon this kind of problems when learning advanced mathematics in my postgraduate studies, in a course entitled stochastic geometry. Just formulating the problem required advanced knowledge of sophisticated measure theory and stochastic spatial processes in some special mathematical spaces. The lessons were very theoretical, focusing on highly abstract and generic mathematical settings. This removed much of the fun of this otherwise very exciting field full of mysterious and remarkable results. […]
