The Golden Ratio By definition, the Golden Ratio is a ratio involving overlapping line segments. Given collinear points A, B, and C, such that B is between A an...

The Monty Hall problem persists in Internet mathematics discussions, as if its results are somehow spectacularly unique or mystifying. Here is the problem: You ...

I had to dig for a bit to find a complete proof for each part of the Power of a Point Theorem, so I thought it would be useful to compile my own proof. The Powe...

I was recently reading a book on Greenfoot, a Java-based GUI intended for teaching programming to high schoolers and college underclassman. In the “Newton...

What does “ten” mean? Here are some dictionary definitions: The number 10. (MacMillan) The cardinal number equal to 9 + 1. (American Heritage) Equiv...

In this entry, I’m going to be discussing how mathematicians tend to approach the world, and why we need better PR. I’m currently teaching High Scho...
