What is infinity? I think we get our first sense of it when we are children. I remember being asked what the largest number was. Guessing something only with an adult adding one to get something bigger. Or the times when I upped my parents by telling them I loved them times a million. Infinity […]
I’ve been going through a deep depression which has been compounded by recent world events. I often feel that I have very little to contribute to the world. There are only a few things that I’m very good at. Though I suspect that is true for most people.
Representation in STEM fields matter I was always interested in mathematics and science from a young age. I really didn’t see anyone like me though. Women are under represented. There are still a lot of gate keepers that prevent and discourage women from pursuing STEM fields. There is still harassment and obstacles for those who […]
The Golden Ratio is one of those famous constants in mathematics. It is a number that appears frequently in nature. This is because things like seeds and petals tend to be Fibonacci numbers. This phenomenon was studied by Alan Turing. A property of them is that when you divide two consecutive Fibonacci numbers you get […]
The mathematics world celebrates Pi Day on 3.14! I hope you are enjoying the special day. There should be a lot of Pi mathematical content all over the web today. Traditionally, you should get yourself a slice of pie to eat. Today, I want to offer up some Pi themed mathematical cross stitch patterns for […]
This is going to be a simple post for Valentine’s Day. I’ve been doing research into Alan Turing’s work in mathematical biology. I found his work on animal patterns interesting for sure. I think one of those questions we is how the Leopard got its spots. Turing had an answer for that. Yet, what I […]
A long time ago now, I made a mix tape for a mathematician that only included mathematically related songs. I didn’t keep a copy of that mix unfortunately. I’ve tried to recreate it on Spotify. This list includes more than the original though as I’ve added some new songs over time as well as included […]
I’m not going to make this a very long post. Numberphile reignited my love of mathematics. This list is the 10 best videos of Numberphile sorted by year. I’d love to see your list.
Trigger Warning: Abuse Ten Years of Numberphile Numberphile just reached its tenth anniversary on November 11th, 2021. I can’t believe that I’ve been watching this show for close to a decade. I wasn’t there at the beginning. I didn’t catch on to it until 2012 and officially became a fan after watching the 12-12-12 video […]
I was recently featured on a podcast called Alone Together. This podcast is all about the meaning of loneliness as inspired by the pandemic. You see, there was a psychologist who studied the physiological impact of loneliness on the mind and body. It can be surprisingly damaging. I was super psyched to be interviewed for […]
