Scary Mathematics

I thought that because Halloween is tomorrow (for me) a post about some Halloween related mathematics will be fun.

1. Carving Pumpkins. This is one of the traditions for Halloween that I enjoy the most. I was never used to Halloween when I was little, because in Romania (my birth-country) we didn’t celebrate it, but my grandparents were still carving pumpkins for me and my little sister every autumn. Here are some great ideas for a math-lover:

2. Scary Math. History of mathematics has some strange names for specific properties or specific numbers and so on. Some of these names are incredibly perfect for Halloween; they make you think of witches, beasts, devil, skeleton and other things specific for 31st October.  Here are the ones I think are the nicest (and most interesting ones):

3. Costumes. This chapter is for more Halloween lovers. I believe it’s really creative to dress for Halloween. Here are some more strange and funny ways to dress this Halloween if you are more like a math-lover (like the persons in the images – none of the images are mine, Google helped me with this):
