Fun Math Blog

1 January , 2009

I came across a blog called Fun Math Blog when searching the Internet for different blogs about mathematics. I must confess I did this during working hours, so I am not really sure whether it should pass as work or leisure… Now, the author of the Fun math blog invited visitors to exchange short reviews, so here goes! Sol is mathematician who writes mostly (well, almost exclusively) about mathematics. I have followed his blog for some months and can highly recommend his posts – and I must admit they come out more often than mine! Since I am working in higher education, educating teachers, I feel a little bit sad that I don’t go so much into the content of mathematics anymore. It’s always there, but there just doesn’t seem to be enough time to get really involved with mathematical problems. That is why I especially like his articles section. There are lots of things to think about in there, for instance when working with math anxiety or other didactical topics.

Since I also love to read stuff where mathematics enters the stage within media and culture, I have to forward this link from his last entry. I am fond of things like these: http://www.math.harvard.edu/~knill/mathmovies/index.html.
On my Norwegian-only mathematics site I also have a tag for videos with some mathematical content or theme.

Categorizing my blog…

I ran the blog through the typealizer – just to check what the heck I have been writing, and this was the result:

ISTP – The Mechanics
[ISTP]
The independent and problem-solving type. They are especially attuned to the demands of the moment are masters of responding to challenges that arise spontaneously. They generally prefer to think things out for themselves and often avoid inter-personal conflicts.

The Mechanics enjoy working together with other independent and highly skilled people and often like seek fun and action both in their work and personal life. They enjoy adventure and risk such as in driving race cars or working as policemen and firefighters.
Analysis
This show what parts of the brain that were dominant during writing.
