## Video links for STAT students.

Dear class, Not all YouTube math videos are created equal!! I will post links to the most useful ones here:   Confidence Intervals: Introduction to confide...

## Summer courses almost over, "children's" books in the works.

This summer is one I will remember. I taught both differential equations and calculus II for the first time. Seeing these subjects from the instructors side has...

## Of yarn and math.

Yarn has been on my mind. It's on my mind because I love to knit, but also because of this post I read some weeks ago on the mathematics stack exchange. The aut...

## Almost Cauchy Sequence, unfinished business.

I just remembered a question from beginning analysis that my professor mentioned in class: "Find a sequence that is not Cauchy, yet any consecutive terms will b...

## A good starting point.

Looking for a new area of mathematics to explore? If there is anything on this page that you have not studied, it might prove to be a good starting point. It is...

## Introducing the multi-zeta function!

Contemplating: My friend, and fellow math blogger, Owen, tried to tell me I was dealing with the multi-zeta function the other day, but the very general definit...

## Play with the follium!

I've discovered Wolfram Alpha's widget builder. It's very easy to make little searches that help focus your readers (or students) on certian topics in Wolfram's...
