Almost Wednesday! Let’s gather some of last weeks posts.
Yet again, Monday was lost — it’s just that kind of day… But Tuesday came to the rescue. Over at the AMS Grad Student Blog, Melanie Laffin explored the “Unteachables”, Alasdair’s Musings wrote about two results about squares, Intersections found some visual math poems, Playing with Mathematica announced the winners of its first competition and La Covacha Matematica explored colors and formulas in a short post.
Come Wednesday, James Colliander called for Canada to get more invested in the Fields Medal while Rhapsody in Numbers explained the problem with dimensions (and on Monday had given a stunning fractal). Last but not least, Retraction Watch explored the apology for a retraction at Applied Mathematical Letters.
Jumping right ahead to Friday, Walking Randomly defended inefficient scientific code, Peter Cameron started a sweet new series on ADE diagrams, Broken Airplane took the example of Khan Academy to remind online Educators to join together and Math Encounters recollects a recent filter design problem.
For the weekend, Igor Carron gave out some eye candy of compressive sensing and math hombre wrote about teachers investigating quadratics on Saturday; on Sunday, Republic of Math found the quadratic formula and took it a little down the rabbit hole.
Hope you enjoy them!
