I've published a few hubs on topics in basic maths (percentages, fractions, ratio etc.) and they're getting a fair number of views, so I'd like to do some more hubs in this subject area. Any and all suggestions for topics gratefully received. I'm especially interested in doing hubs that explain areas of everyday maths which people find difficult/tricky.
What about trigonometry - explaining how it is possible to measure the height of a tall tree waiting to be cut down, by measuring the angle of the shadow or whatever it is they use using trig. I've forgotten. When at school I couldn't see the point of it all, but a few years later as an adult returner it all made sense. If you're good at maths you'll know what I mean.
Wasn't it something like measuring the distance someone is standing from the tree, and the angle from where he stood...
On e thing I know many kids struggle with is finding the perimeter and area of an object.
Many thanks for both these suggestions - the trigonometry one with the tree is an idea I hadn't thought of! (You've given me an idea for a more general hub, actually... watch this space.)
I guess you could just pick ideas out of a math text book. I doubt these kinds of hubs will make you rich though!

I'm writing some trigonometry hubs and I've noticed there seem to be a decent number of hubs in the category already, but the category isn't clickable... it's still greyed out. I'm assuming this is due to the fact that there isn't a HUGE number of hubs in this category yet.Does anyone know? I'm...

I've been looking at the Latest Hubbers and doing a lot of HubHopping lately and noticed a pattern. Based upon some of what I have seen I am making some suggestions. I'm sure HubPages staff and moderators see all sorts of patterns to spam and poorer quality Hubs.Here's some suggestions...
