Just a quick “I’m still here”-post…
Thought I’d share three cool posts I found today.
Wired.com doesn’t need any introduction I guess. Sometimes they have science related posts too good to miss, like this one: http://www.wired.com/wiredscience/2011/05/is-the-launch-speed-in-angry-birds-constant/
Lifehacker has grown to be one of my favorite Google Reader items, and I usually find interesting posts here every day. It’s noe necessarily science or math related, but they are often quite geeky, and well worth a look. Here’s a tip on using pencils if you find yourself playing yatzy without enough die. http://lifehacker.com/5804898/use-a-pencil-as-a-6+sided-die
Google sketchup is a cool freeware effort that also can be used in math education. I got this tip from the Math and Multimedia blog: http://mathandmultimedia.com/2011/05/25/intersection-of-planes-google-sketchup/
