My father sent over this great article from the New York Times on using fair division to split up rent with roommates when all rooms aren’t equal. Not only is it a nice application of math that guarantees an “envy free” living situation, but the NYT did a bang up job with the graphics. There is a Wolfram like manipulative and they give you a calculator as well. Well done, NYT!
I found this cool retro sci-fi book cover on Sadburro. I wish I could get my car loaded up with formulas like this.
I always love running into math infographics in magazines. I was flipping through the fashion mag W and found there is a recurring inset called the Inspiration Equation. (It is always on the last page.) Some of the equations are pretty funny. One of them has a blowfish as an argument. The bad thing is that, not knowing fashion very well, I can’t tell whether they are serious about a blowfish inspiring a dress?
My awesome roommate gave me How to Be Interesting for my birthday. It is kind a self-help/inspirational book. (I can’t imagine why she thinks I need help.) The cool thing about the book is all the Venn-Diagram and graphs to explain all the points. Thanks, Sue!
