The mathematical (and other) thoughts of a (now retired) math teacher,
Hey, that's MY blog you linked to, "Multiplication by Infinity"! Lol, glad you liked it, I am honored. I'm following your blog now, could you and Shecky return the favor?
Steven, Sorry, I will make sure I give you credit, although it must be driving some folks your way, I get more hits on the cartoons than the substance... And thanks for following, and will certainly return the favor.Pat
No apology necessary. I'm just an elvish archer of a scout in the forest of ignorance, beginning with my own. Much appreciated and thanks for joining. I like this website as well, being a geometer at heart.Speaking of which, have you seen or read the book The Shape of Things published just this year by Shing-Tung Yau of Harvard Math and Steve Nadis? Yau proved Calabi's Conjecture, hence the familiar "Calabi-Yau" manifold (n-6) used in String Theory, a theory whose maths may seem intimidating, because they are a bit, but C-Y I'm sure will have other uses. I'm not a fan of String Theory, as I'm a tad partial to theories that can actually predict something.The book however, is fantastic. Yau considers himself a geometer, and he's a legend in Geometry.Are you a high school math teacher? I get that impression. I'm shooting for being a teacher myself, perhaps Calc 1 at a local junior college. We'll see.Nice family btw. I'm also married to a brunette beauty. Looks like you have 2 kids and 2 grandkids. Good for you, and cheers.
