Next month (March 2019) I will be hosting the ‘Carnival of Mathematics’ – a monthly blogging round up hosted by a different blog each month and organised by the Aperiodical.
The Carnival of Mathematics accepts any mathematics-related blog posts, YouTube videos or other online content posted during the previous month (February 2019): explanations of serious mathematics, puzzles, writing about mathematics education, mathematical anecdotes, refutations of bad mathematics, applications, reviews, etc. Sufficiently mathematized portions of other disciplines are also acceptable. Links to the previous monthly posts and a FAQ section can be found on the Aperiodical website here.
The deadline to submit your posts will be the 1st March 2019.
This incarnation will be the 167th Carnival of Mathematics so here are some fun facts about the number 167…
- 167 is the only prime number that cannot be expressed as the sum of 7 or fewer cube numbers.
- 167 is the number of tennis titles won by Martina Navratilova – an all-time record for men or women.
- 167P/CINEOS is a periodic comet in our solar system.
- M167 Vulcan is a towed short-range air defence gun.
- 167 is the London bus route from Ilford to Loughton.
The previous Carnival can be found at Math with Bad Drawings hosted by Ben.
My favourite Carnival is number 146 which featured Tom Rocks Maths for the first time!
