NumbersRound - Countdown-style number problem solver/app

I made a web-app that generates and efficiently solves Countdown-style number problems. Then I turned it into an android app (free of charge and also free of advertising). The javascript powering both is open-sourced under the MIT license.

Maseno Maths Camp video

This is a video about a math camp in Maseno, Kenya, that I've helped coordinate for the last two years. The idea is to give secondary school students a new perspective on mathematics, and expose teachers to activity-based teaching methods. We're aiming to get across the idea that math is about the concepts rather than the drills, understanding rather than mindless computation, beauty rather than grades. The video runs about 13 minutes, but there's a catchy song at the beginning to rope you in and get the idea across more quickly. Finally, there's a blog post here outlining a bit of the work we've been up to this year. [more inside]

The On-Line Blog of Integer Sequences

I'm a big fan of recreational mathematics. I would, from time to time, poke around The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences and be startled both by the sheer volume of it, and also by the nuggets of deeply interesting sequences I would occasionally find. After a year of dithering, I've finally started keeping a blog discussing (in brief detail) interesting sequences found therein.
