Library Home || Full Table of Contents || Library Help
|Blog by a secondary school maths teacher (Forest School, London, UK) that aims to provide "maths to the masses," with a preference for illustrations via GeoGebra. Bullock describes his "paranoia [as] rooted in the average person's contemptible indifference to maths and their assumption that mathematical elegance is incompatible with their interests." Posts of mathematical curiosities, which date back to July, 2009, have included "David Beckham is a Mathematician!"; "No-Numbers Geometry"; "Roberto Carlos Wonder Goal 'No Fluke,' Say Physicists"; "Folding a Trapezium"; "The 1-in-10 Gay Problem"; "The Shrinking Square;" "GeoGebra: Tangent Fields and Isoclines"; "GeoGebra: Probability Venn Diagram with Proportional Regions"; "The Traversal Problem (3 dimensions)"; "Graphs that Swear!"; "Using the Mean to Find the Mode of a Binomial Distribution"; "Instructions: Using an iframe to Embed a GeoGebra Worksheet in a WordPress Blog Post"; and "'Higher or Lower' - Easy card game?"|
