    Tweet from the creator of the dice puzzle: Ross O'Brien @narrativium
    Years ago I devised this puzzle: pic.twitter.com/IHeB7WKQ Tonight, thanks to @MathsJam, maths people 3000 miles away are trying to solve it.

      Mick, Fantastic job. I hadn't even considered a test by simulation. What did you use for the simulation?

      I used livecode (formerly Revolution), a many generations descendant of Apple's Hypercard. I have several things I could use, but this is the quickest for writing the program.

    Thanks again to everyone who was able to make it out. We'll be doing this again next month at the same location.

    I may be late, due to an event that has come up with colleagues beforehand, but am looking forward to meeting people and checking out the Meetup.

    Hi everyone. I'm really looking forward to a great turnout for the return of the DC MathsJam. For those on Twitter, you can follow the other sites at @mathsjam starting late afternoon. Feel free to bring your own favorite puzzle, problem, game, even math joke. I've asked the other sites to send us some of their favorites as well.

    I'd like to come, but I am tutoring Tuesday night (as many weeknights, since I'm a full time math tutor) and won't be able to come

    Sorry I won't be able to be there, I'm a full time math tutor and (as on many week nights) I won't be able to be there

    If you are on Twitter, you can follow @MathsJam to see the latest info as well as look at previous Jam discussions. Because of the time difference, you will be able to follow the event as it unfolds through the day in Europe, about 25 cities in all, before we meet.

    Hi fellow math enthusiasts,
    I am wondering if anyone is interested in helping me with a math problem I am encountering at work. I do valuations of very large transactions for a government agency. Working with a valuation model that uses interest rates to discount projected future cash flows, we are encountering very strange results that, I think, relate to sign changes in the projected cash flows leading to asymptotes. Unfortunately, some very realistic input values are close to the asymptotes. I would like help with the following types of things: getting the formulas into a statistical software package, graphing the solutions, and then possibly co-authorship of a paper discussing when these models are / are not appropriate given the complications caused by the asymptotes. If you are interested, please give me a call at[masked]-0848. I work in DC near gallery place and live in Vienna, VA. I'll meet anyone interested in helping where ever is convenient.
    Thanks!
    Denise
