|"Cool stuff" that Peterson, the Director of Publications and Communications at the Mathematical Association of America (MAA), encounters while "browsing the world of mathematics and computer science: new developments in math and its applications, old puzzles, famous problems, and historic events." The blog, labeled with tags such as architecture, communicating mathematics, India, Moebius Strips, randomness, and "geometreks" -- outdoor sculpture of a geometric nature -- dates back to October, 2006 and has included posts such as "The Fabulously Odd 11-Cell," "Tom Lehrer's Derivative Ditties," "Random Walks to Football Rankings," "Sliding Pi in Toronto," "Tensegrity Tower in New Orleans," "The Mathematical Vocabulary Problem," "Fire Hydrant Pentagons," and "Pythagoras at the Plate."|
