Math Teachers at Play #12

It’s a good one. (here, at the Number Warrior)

– – — — —– ——– ————- ——– —– — — – –

Opens with an elementary probability puzzle (for kids).

– – — — —– ——– ————- ——– —– — — – –

Teaching time. An elevator with negative numbers. Rainbows in times tables. And lots of ways to multiply.

– – — — —– ——– ————- ——– —– — — – –

Secret math in the doctor’s office. A special quadratic. How many spins of a circle get you back to the start? (depends on how far each spin goes). Some calculus.

– – — — —– ——– ————- ——– —– — — – –

Math around the house (could be kitchen table, but the name’s spoken for. And quite loudly). On line practice. Looking for a good math TV show. Programming in school?

– – — — —– ——– ————- ——– —– — — – –

Something like LaTeX for blogger (it’s what let’s me type \frac{-b \pm \sqrt{b^2 - 4ac}}{2a} right at my keyboard). And some discussion of equation editor. People who can’t do math. And others who can do it really fast.

So go, run, read, click. Jason, the Number Warrior, has done  a fine job.
