Mathematical headaches? Problem solved!
Hi, I'm Colin, and I'm here to help you make sense of maths
Written by Colin+ in quizzes.
A slight change of pace this week: a game rather than a quiz. Can you sink the enemy ships by firing at the right co-ordinates?
(If the grid doesn’t show up, try refreshing.)
Colin is a Weymouth maths tutor, author of several Maths For Dummies books and A-level maths guides. He started Flying Colours Maths in 2008.
He lives with an espresso pot and nothing to prove.
@icecolbeveridge Strangely, I was just looking at this: http://t.co/vNDIJHXfRg

I teach in my home in Abbotsbury Road, Weymouth.
It's a 15-minute walk from Weymouth station, and it's on bus routes 3, 8 and X53. On-road parking is available nearby.
Very rude and patronising @SW_Help staff on the platform at Weymouth today. Luckily Guard Bob on the train was ace.

TIL that the state flag of Hawaii contains a Union Flag, and the flag of Maryland is an absolute abomination.

Does anyone have a clue what D(a,b) could mean here? i.imgur.com/MqG5WDz.jpg My best guess is gcd(a,b), but I’m open to ideas.
