In this, the final episode of WBU, @reflectivemaths and I discuss:
- @samuel_hansen’s antiracism post((get well soon, Samuel)). Dave and I both assert that Black Lives Matter and acknowledge that we have a significant amount of work to do to create a just society.
- In a whiplash-inducing change of tone, tooth fairy maths
- Multiplayer Nim (‘unlucky 10’)
- The Million Game from @drewfoster
- Dave seems to have a thing about noughts and crosses
- The Mathoff is over: thanks, everyone!
- Now, more than ever, would a decent text book be the answer?
- The chaos game in a hexagon
- Social distancing in 3D
- Via @christianp: Simon Plouffe has found a sequence of 565 primes in ‘geometric progression’ (meaning they’re the closest integers to the first 565 terms of a geometric sequence)
- Some quotes from past blog posts:
- Dave insults mechanics, then gets stroppy about Colin insulting stats
- In this month’s podcast, @reflectivemaths and I discuss: Colin’s book being available to buy
- Colin gloats about Spoof My Proof and Dave chews on sour grapes
- Colin has laser eye surgery and doesn’t care about Dave’s health… … but does care about 20481
- A final puzzle: It usually takes me eighty minutes to run my Sunday running route, but if I wear my running hat, it takes one hour and twenty minutes. Why?
Thank you for listening loyally, especially to those who’ve co-hosted and interacted with us. It’s been an entertaining journey.
Right. How do we get into pretending this didn’t happen?
