Welcome, dear reader, to The Math Less Traveled! Do any of the following apply to you?

  1. You are a high school student.
  2. You are not a high school student.
  3. You are intrigued by the idea that mathematics can be fun and beautiful.
  4. You took Geometralgebralculunometry III with Mrmrs. Soandsowhatserisface and had such a terrible, horrible, no-good very bad experience that you have now decided that you HATE math.
  5. You enjoy trying to solve challenging math problems.
  6. You hate solving challenging math problems but don’t mind reading about their (interesting and beautiful) solutions.

If so, you’ve come to the right place! Whether you are a math nerd, a closet math lover, a math hater willing to give it a second chance, or just curious, I hope you will be able to find things here to intrigue and inspire you: fractions and fractals, infinities and intuitions, numbers and nuances, and most importantly, beauty.


(If you are intrigued but want to know more — who I am, what this blog is really all about (world domination, of course), what sorts of math you might find here — check out the “about” pages linked to from the right margin.)
