MATH FOR THE HOLIDAYS

C&C's resident math expert, Robert Berkman, sends our Middle and Upper School off to their winter holidays with a Math Newsletter, which has all sorts of idea on how to keep an interest in math going strong throughout the break, including recommendations for math videos, riddles, books, a puzzle, and an exhibit. Read the entire newsletter here.
AN EXCERPT: Vi Hart, who bills herself a “recreational mathematician,” pens a provocative blog, www.vihart.com, which features captivating (and quite silly) short films about everything from how to do a binary finger dance to a discourse on why she is against pi (the transcendental number, not the dessert.) Great fun for the avant-garde performer that lives within all of us.
