Mathematics and Multimedia Blog Carnival 23

Welcome to the 23rd edition of the Mathematics and Multimedia Blog Carnival. This is a repost from Mathematical Palette, a blog which I no longer maintain.

In this edition, we have a miscellany of mathematics and mathematics teaching articles.

John Cook presents a proof technique that seems to give you something for nothing, an interesting Binomial coefficient trick, posted at the Endeavor.

Shaun Klassen has a clear explanation about the basic concept of limits in Using Limits to Find Tangents posted at Mathematics Concepts Explained. » Read more

Math Teachers at Play 65: Teach, Learn and Enjoy

Welcome to the 65th edition of Math Teachers at Play. First let us have some trivia about 65. First, 65 is the smallest integer that can be expressed as the sum of two distinct positive squares in two ways 65 = 82 + 12 = 72 + 42. Second, 65 is the length of the hypotenuse of 4 different Pythagorean Triangles:  652 = 162 + 632 = 332 + 562 = 392 + 522 = 252 + 602. Third, 65=15+24+33+42+51. Lastly, 65 is the traditional age for retirement in the United States, the United Kingdom, and other countries including my beloved Philippines.

And now, let the math carnival begin!
