Abstract

Honey bees have been an integral part of human civilization for centuries. They pollinate crops and supply us with honey and pollen. In fact, humans use almost everything that honey bees collect or produce from royal jelly in cosmetics, to wax for candies and propolis for finishing the wood of fine musical instruments. Honey bees also have another function. They make great tools for teaching the fundamentals of mathematics and biology to students of all ages.
