If you read the books or watched the movies, you get the sense that Frodo and Sam walked pretty far to toss that ring in the fire. Imgur user mattsawizard…Tags: humor, Lord of the Rings

The more I think about it, I might've gotten enough sci-fi references to fill that in, had I tried, had I tried ... Damn it, Jim! Meanwhile, 80s Week continues. Come back often for more funny math and geeky comics.

curiosamathematica: In dynamical systems, a bifurcation occurs when a small change made to the parameter values of a system causes a sudden qualitative or topological change in its behaviour. The name “bifurcation” was first introduced by Henri Poincaré in 1885 in the first paper in mathematics showing such a behavior.Even in simple systems such as the logistic map, bifurcations can arise and introduce chaos. A rough description of chaos is that chaotic systems exhibit a great sensitivity […]

trigonometry-is-my-bitch: Swing-hinged dissection, or simply Hinged dissection, is the geometric dissection in which all of the pieces are connected into a chain by hinged points, such that the rearrangement from one figure to another can be carried out by swinging the chain continuously, without severing any of the connections.Hinged dissections were popularised by author of mathematical puzzles, Henry Dudeney. He introduced the famous hinged dissection of a square into a triangle in his […]

trigonometry-is-my-bitch: classymathematics: Hi guys, I’ve had this idea recently and I definitely need your help. If you start with a line and at both ends add lines such that they are perpendicular to the first one (like on the second picture) and then repeat this process infintely, you get a geometrical figure that seems rather random (not sure if it can be considered as a fractal though). The first 3 images show the 3 first steps ; the fourth one is the result after 8 iterations, […]

7:32 PM | Division of Fractions using Bar Modelling
I was shown this innovative way to perform fraction division using bar modelling today. I previously thought bar modelling for this topic didn’t really work. As did many others. I think it’s pretty clever. Convert the fractions into equivalents with … Continue reading →

9:56 PM | Twitterati Challenge
So first a thanks to Gregory Taylor (@mathtans) of Canada -- I'll get you for this, even as five other educators are preparing to get me -- for including me in his list of five “Twitter Stars”, following his own nomination by Chris Smith (@aap03102) in Scotland. I'm in NYC, so we've crossed the pond and come down across the border, eh? I first heard about this Challenge in Greg's tweet. A little more about Greg: We first met when he stumbled across my webcomic, and he let me know about a […]
