On January 31st, I started 101 days of creative coding. After a few setbacks (11 days with no power), I am on track. Please check out 101 days of creative coding on a computer to fully engage with the interactive days. I didn’t want to spam everyone with a daily blog post, but there is quite a bit of content to be found in these daily doodles.
On January 1st, I started to write a haiku every day. I have been publishing sets every 19 days on medium. Some of them are mathematical and some are not, but you may enjoy them:
I hosted the 191st Carnival of Mathematics round of blogs this month. This was fun. I enjoyed reading submissions and meeting other people who love math.
I have a piece I have been working on in “For the Love of Mathematics” in the NCTM Journal – stay tuned.
With 10-12 groups/classes a week, I stay busy. Some of the highlighted activities from this month were:
- Investigating ratios with cardioids. You can check out the code here (on a computer) and see what patterns you can find.
- Folding 60 degree angles and then folding airplanes from those triangles or making Sierpinski triangles. Planes had every angle labeled with angles and clever names prior to flight.
- Mathigon Polypad was used to play with Tantrix and Kolam tiles. Students are working on creating their own tiles.
- Desmos Art in high school groups were fun – Together, students passed functions back and forth over chat (see below).
