  2. A variety (DOZENS!) of freshly written Math Mammoth reviews for you!

    Here are a few in particular that I want to feature:

2. Looking back: Ten years ago

In my newsletter 10 years ago...

In case you're interested, you can find the old (and new) newsletters at

3. This is fun... but is it really math?

I want to do this triangle activity with my kids! Math and art together is always neat. :)

4. US vs. UK

I enjoyed this article... differences between US and British English when it comes to MATH terminology! The author is taking it humorously though sometimes it's a struggle for people who have to switch over from one to the other. :)

5. See how varied mathematics really is?

This is a neat video showing the various areas of mathematics, including both theoretical and applied. It can be eye-opening to children and students, who may think that all math is, is just numbers and calculations. It goes SO much deeper than that!

I just got a tiny glimpse of some of those domains of math in university (such as complex analysis, measure theory, and game theory) — and they are fascinating!

The entire field of mathematics summarized in a single map! This shows how pure mathematics and applied mathematics relate to each other and all of the sub-topics they are made from.

Here's also a still image for you to download.

Thanks for reading! :)
