9:00 AM | Bad at Math Is a Lie
Matt Waite—University of Nebraska-LincolnAll I had to do was test into college algebra. That was what the College of Journalism and Mass Communications at the University of Nebraska required in 1993. If you could score well enough on the math placement exam for incoming freshmen to get into college algebra—not take it, just get into it—you were done with math. I very nearly didn’t graduate from high school on time because of math, so this made the test a five-alarm panic attack. I […]

1:00 AM | {3,3,7} Honeycomb Meets Plane at Infinity
The {3,3,7} honeycomb is a honeycomb in 3d hyperbolic space. It is the dual of the {7,3,3} honeycomb shown last time. This image, drawn by Roice Nelson, shows the 'boundary' of the {3,3,7} honeycomb: that is, the set of points on the 'plane at infinity' that are limits of points in the {3,3,7} honeycomb.
