Book news

We are polishing the book landing page. It will have a short Moebius Noodles declaration of principles, previews of pages, quotes from reviews, and so on. We need to find a balance between greeting newbies first coming upon Moebius Noodles – and displaying photos, questions and answers, and game ideas from people already involved with the project.

The book is a beginning. It is an invitation to join the Moebius Noodles movement!

How do you join? Questions are at the heart of learning mathematics. To join Moebius Noodles movement, ask a question!

Moebius Noodles Q&A

The powerful enterprise software for questions and answers is provided to Moebius Noodles by DZone, a publisher and a community of software developers. The leaders of DZone believe in supporting excellent mathematics education for the next generation of technologists.

Math Goggles #9 invites you to seek math in your child’s favorite cartoons:

This week’s Math Goggles challenge is very simple – watch one of your child’s favorite cartoons and look for math in it. If it seems interesting, intriguing, strange, weird, and worth investigating, look further into it. Yep, that’s it! Here’s how it worked out for me…

Math Goggles #10 is a series of challenges about slicing bagels. It starts simple: can you slice into two pieces? Can you slice so that the cross-section is two circles? Then it gets involved, all the way to trefoil knots and mobius strips.

Mobius Bagel

David Coffey started a meme on making every day mathematically special. Try it with your kids! Ask them for their favorite numbers, and celebrate when those days come up. Our examples are on the blog; here’s one for today, 3/30:

Happy 3 30
