Scooter Circles

So… the picture quality isn’t great, but you see those curved lines behind the scooter (aff link)? That was this morning’s math conversation. When you go straight with wet wheels on a 3 wheeled scooter, the center (rear) wheel is equidistant from the two sides.

What happens when you turn? Is it possible to get the rear wheel to actually meet or go outside of the lines of the front wheels? What happens if you go backwards?

What else could you do to test this out?

And what materials could you use if you wanted to try this again inside? Any ideas?

🙂

Happy wondering!
