Picture this

Picture this! is a very cool interactive thingy, made by Jason Davies, intended to get students (or anyone, really) thinking about some interesting math. Go play around with it and see if you can answer any of the listed questions (or any other questions you might come up with yourself). It turns out to be quite intimately related to something I’ve written about before—but I won’t spoil it by saying what (at least, not yet =).

    It seems to be limited to 200, making spirals using, say, 377 and 233 impossible. I discovered this when trying 355 and 113.

  2. Neat! Also neat is the website that page is made for: http://nrich.maths.org/
    There’s good math there for K-16.
