Online courses: Coursera

I thought that today I should say a couple of words about one the biggest online courses website I know about: Coursera.

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 know that most of this month, so far, was more about the Mathematicians' Event and I believe sometimes it is to much, even if I love this event a lot. So I decided to do something completely new today: talk about a game. Maybe you do not know already but I am a big... Continue Reading →
