Author:Stephen F. Kennedy
Description: In the September 1995 issue of Math Horizons readers were asked to join in a game of creating collective nouns with a mathematical theme. The article was titled "A Gaggle of Geeks." Highlights from the reader response were collected and published in the spring of '96 in an article titled "A Bunch of Nonsense." A similar game had been run earlier to which faculty and students from the Carleton and St. Olaf math departments had contributed. All the responses from both contests are collected here.
