## Functional Drawing at C&!

Last week I taught at the first (year 0) of C&!, the Camp for Algorithmic Math Play. It was a lot of fun working on mathematical play and games with a group of… Continue reading

Vain attempts to construct order

In the previous post on curvahedra spheres, we actually missed an interesting collection of curvahedra balls, as we assumed that every face had at least 3 sides. This makes a lot of sense… Continue reading

Curvahedra can make all sorts of objects, but some of the most satisfying are spheres, like the classic ball itself (here serving as a Christmas ornament). So what other spheres or near spheres… Continue reading

These are Curvahedra pieces:They can hook together to make all sorts of geometric objects. For example, take three pieces and make a triangle (or something triangle like with wiggly edges) Taking a close… Continue reading

Linear algebra is one of my favourite areas of mathematics. Its a simplification but you could say that the things that mathematics does well are small numbers and straight lines. The rest is… Continue reading

Alex and I initially met thanks to this blog. He was fact checking for an article that included the Taylor-Socolar aperiodic tiling that I had written up. The general theme of the article… Continue reading

This summer I taught a graduate statistics course in data visualisation at the University of Arkansas. As a final project the students had to find a data set, think of questions you could… Continue reading

This is a vague transcript from memory of a talk I gave at Twitter Math Camp 2014. It was a truly energising event, teacher organised peer professional development. Anyone interested in education, whether… Continue reading

The number 12, not the most esoteric secret of mathematics. Yet through the under appreciated power of the equals sign it can become 6+6, 3*4, 15-3, 36/3 aall before we add in unusual… Continue reading

I really like parametric functions. You take two functions from the reals to the reals and use them to define x and y coordinates of points. For example you can take and you… Continue reading

Collegiate typography parsed into a fractal, with the theme of lots of parts coming together to make the whole. That’s the corporate design spin on the new logo for the Twitter Math Camp,… Continue reading
