St. Patrick’s Day is coming up, and what better way to celebrate than to incorporate some fun holiday facts in your next math class?
The History Channel put together some interesting numbers about this holiday. For example, did you know that 650,000 babies were named Patrick in the U.S. over the past 100 years? And if you wear green on St. Patrick’s Day, you’re in good company; about 83% of Americans wear the same color that day.
