Carnival of Math 52 at Number Warrior

May 10, 2009 am31 9:36 am

Hand me CoM 52, and I’d be off doing card tricks. I’d divide the posts into clubs, hearts, diamonds, spades (no clovers, right, or are those clubs?)

Not Jason Dyer, at Number Warrior, who leads with a well-spun tale about Mersenne and perfect numbers and surprising lectures.

Then comes the actual carnival: almost 20 sharp links. I don’t know if Jason tilted it on purpose, but his carnival has a lot of things.

There are mathematical sculptures. Homemade mathematical calendars. Mathematical look at maypoles. Full color pictures of a Mayan mathematics text. And then this problem- click the Pat Bellew link for the answer – What is wrong with this photo:

(I was going to link to Pat’s post, had it not appeared in the carnival)

    I was originally planning the card thing, but I just couldn’t get it to work.

    When I ran into the Mersenne 52 fact it was so startling I knew I had to give it a try.
