Spontaneous #anyqs. Karen and Gail wondered: how many cupcakes do we need?
Meat Math! #anyqs?
BTW, the kielbasa was delicious. Bake at 350 with enough water to not evaporate (~2 c), seasoning if you want (for me, bay leaf, pepper). Remove, simmer in beer (stout is my preference) in the pan or a crock pot.
There’s a great music humble bundle on right now. (Sometimes it’s software, or games.) You pick a donation amount, and then split up the money amongst the authors/musicians, the charities, and the humble bundle folks.
But I love how the divvy applet works. Raises some nice algebraic questions for me.
How about you? #anyqs?
Oh! I was just plying with lemniscates yesterday in GeoGebra. (x^2+y^2)^2=2c^2(x^2-y^2) is very interesting.
Could students watch this and see the geometric property being referenced?
Something about this situation made my mathey-sense tingle and compulsed me to buy and cook these two not quite similar hot dogs. Any questions? (At 101qs.com)
Dough! #anyqs? At 101qs.com.
Bacon. #Anyqs? At 101qs, too.
Dressed up the reptile for #anyqs at 101qs.com. What do you think - is there any perplexity in this?
Our terrific local movie theatre, Cinema Carousel, has a popcorn deal where you can buy a bucket and get 2 refills per visit for about half a year. We love movies and popcorn, so we have been buying these identically sized buckets for years. Like the winter bucket:
But when we went to the Avengers-
(It was AWESOME.
Down, inner fanboy, down!)
-there was a new, visibly smaller bucket.
The ticket seller said, “oh they just look smaller.” It’s like he knew I was a math teacher and would now have to buy it.
What do you think? Can you tell from projection/cross sectional area? Is it obvious? What matters more, width or height?
For those who need to measure. Do you need to measure?
One of the great things about Drop7 (others - puzzley problem solving, it is free!) is that it gives excellent data. I thought it was cool that my average budged so little after these two games, but… any questions?
BTW, I’m stuck with a max score in the high 300Ks. If you have any tips…
