Lunar New Year 2021 – Year of the Ox

Year of the Metal Ox

Celebrated by 1/4th of the world's population, Lunar New Year begins on Friday, February 12th. This will be the year of the Metal Ox.  The year's name is a combination of 10 Heavenly Stems and 12 Earthly Branches creating a sequence of year names that eventually repeat.

Students explore the least common multiple of these two cycles without ever hearing the term LCM.  They explore some of Asian culture and begin to understand the major significance of this annual event, while they “do the math”.
