We try to read every blog post that goes through Mathblogging.org. For the Weekly Picks, we collect posts in one category from last week to give you an impression of what the mathematical blogosphere has to offer. (Read this for more information on this change.)

Last week, we focused on “Education.

Projects, lessons, etc.

  • Mathy McMatherson has some resources on teaching computer science.
  • Angry Math gives a concrete example of Confidence Intervals.
  • math hombre prepares for a talk about GeoGebra — with a purpose!
  • At squareCircleZ, Murray Bourne challenges you to predict the future.
  • At ThinkThankThunk, Shawn Cornally teaches calculus with glow sticks.

  • At The Endeavour, John Cook explains how to computationally deal with logarithms of large factorials.

Community

  • At mathbabe, Cathy O’Neill explains why mathematicians know how to admit they are wrong (in mathematics at least).
  • At Turing’s Invisible Hand, Ariel Procaccia wonders about impartial division of scientific credit.
  • The Geomblog features a guest post by Samira Daruki on the Women in Theory workshop at Princeton.
