Happy Friday! We have some more marriage equality updates, a timeline for future comic book movies, and the untimely passing of some notable people. Also, there’s a rather weird music/intelligence “study” with which I have some problems. Let’s get started:
It’s time for one last quick dose of science news before the holidays.
They say the numbers don’t lie, but there are all kinds of ways to distort the truth using numbers that might even be technically correct.
The Bartlet White House is well on its way to election night. What madcap adventures will our ragtag ideologues get into this week?
There’s an old joke that claims to prove mathematically that we only work one day a year. It sure doesn’t feel that way, but is the math correct?
The Fibonacci sequence is probably something you learned about in math class at some point, but I never realized until well after school just how freaking cool it is. Ready to get your mind blown?
It’s Super Bowl time again! And since I’m a nerd, I can find a way to link math back to pretty much anything, even sports. A lot of people just watch for the commercials, but it’s more fun if you also understand what’s going on in the game. If nothing else, you can impress your […]
It’s time again for you to tell me what science and math topics you’d like to learn more about.

I definitely want to look at more of the amazing women working in the sciences today, but what do y’all want to read more about? Any math questions, scientific […]
Anyone who knows me can attest to the fact that there are few things I value as much and yearn for as deeply as a really good sandwich. But as dedicated as I thought I was to the humble-yet-oh-so-delicious meal, there are some people who take it a step further and delve straight into the […]
We’ve all been there – the check arrives, it’s time to figure out the tip, and all of a sudden you can’t remember any of the math you learned in high school. No worries! You don’t need to whip out the calculator on your cell phone to make sure the waitstaff get what they deserve. […]
I hope everyone has their signed permission slips, because it’s time for a field trip through all the wonderful twists and turns of our wonderful internets. Today’s adventure is going to take us way in the past, way in the future and past a fella who’s going to regret a prominent choice soon. Grab your […]
