Math and Multimedia turns 7!

Math and Multimedia turns 7 today. I started this blog as a hobby but now it has grown into more than a thousand posts.  Recently, it has been recognized as one of the top 100 math blogs for students and math teachers.

In the past few weeks, you have probably observed that fewer posts were made. This is because I am currently studying (again). I’ll do my best though to post at least once a week.

Future Plans

I have already several posts lined up for the coming weeks but below are some of the changes that you will see soon:

  • More interactive posts (using applets)
  • A shift the focus from middle school mathematics to high school mathematics particularly Precalculus and Calculus
  • GeoGebra Tutorials and Pages updates
  • More apps,  games, and resources

GeoGebra Tutorial Updates

For the past two months, I have been slowly updating my GeoGebra tutorials for GeoGebra 5.0. Several of the new updates include the series on GeoGebra Essentials.  The updates of other tutorial series will follow in the next few weeks.

Due the busy schedule and the installation of security features due to recent hacks, I have not posted for almost two weeks. However, this blog has more than 1000 posts, so you have more than enough to read. You might also want to take a look at Math and Multimedia’s 50 most popular posts. You can also to explore the different categories at the top of the page.

Math and Multimedia got hacked today, twice!

Math and Multimedia got hacked today, not only once but twice. The website was redirected to online website selling medicines and drugs.

I called the hosting service this morning and they got it fixed, only to discover that it was hacked again around 5pm local time. I was able to install a security plugin and I yet have to see if it is effective.

The hacker/malware changes the code of the .htaccess file of WordPress. For those who are familiar with Wordpress blogging, this is easy to troubleshoot. You just copy the .htaccess file from another blog and overwrite the code. However, the long term solution should be to disable access to your .htaccess file. Apparently, mine was vulnerable.

I’m sorry for the inconvenience.
