We had a few months off but it's time to get back to the fun of MathsJam. This month I will be bringing along a few examples of my latest obsession, the slide rule. If you are interested, I'll share how to use this low-tech computing device to perform all number of calculations, interested in the 4.2th root of 5.61? Easy peasy.
In the past, I have provided the problems and puzzles to work on but this month, I'm asking you to bring your favorites to the table. Just like a music jam, MathsJam is more fun when everyone contributes.
So don't forget to bring some paper and pencil as well as any other math curiosity you like (games, cards, non-Euclidean crochet work, etc). If you are unfamiliar with this monthly worldwide event, check out http://mathsjam.com. Or check out the live Tweets from previous events at @mathsjam.
