ab: Summary: The raising, tagging and releasing of Monarch butterflies is a
staple in many science classes. However, there are several aspects of
Monarch butterflies that can be used as a basis for interesting
mathematics lessons. In addition to providing examples of activities
related to Monarch butterflies, this article also discusses ways in
which students might think about the mathematical concepts involved.
