MJ4MF Featured in MTaP 58

Let’s Play Math is hosting Math Teachers at Play 58, a blog carnival for math teaching and learning. This month’s issue includes two puzzles, links to at least 50 math blogs, and nine jokes that Denise borrowed from the MJ4MF blog.

What’s special about 58? Well, not much, except that it’s the minimum wind speed (in miles per hour) needed to issue a severe thunderstorm warning, it’s “the luckiest number ever” according to Patrick from SpongeBob SquarePants, and it’s an 11‑gonal number:

11-Gonal-4

I highly encourage you to check out Math Teachers at Play 58, even if you’re not a teacher. But don’t go for the jokes; if you read this blog, you’ll have seen them all before. As it says at the carnival, “If you like to learn new things and play around with ideas, you are sure to find something of interest.” Sounds good to me. Enjoy!
