The resulting discussion there amuses at least me.

Do we have the volume for a Carnival of Research Mathematics?

This term of teaching ends next week.
When I got back from T’bilisi, just over a month ago, I had research leads that I expect will end in three different publications.
I was slated with writing one LARP report for a swedish gaming magazine, and a series of various popular mathematics articles for the local student-run mathematics magazine here.
All in all, very many things converged this June/July for me.
It has started paying off though – the gaming article is published, and yesterday I submitted the first of the T’bilisi articles to the Journal of Homotopy and Related Structures as well as to the arXiv.

Is now up at Math Notations. The current host further suggests a split in undergrad+ and undergrad- categories – with the simpler and didactics focused posts in one carnival and the research and/or advanced mathematical posts in another. Personally, I think the momentum the carnival has is a good thing, and that a split should wait until we habitually turn away more posts than we’re comfortable with. This volume is not yet actually there – wherefore I’d be against a split.

Is up at the GeomBlog.
This fortnight has a lot of goodies, among those a call for reading Grothendieck and a blogpost by Ian Stewart.

And it is with pride that I welcome you all to my first issue, and the third issue all in all, of the Carnival of Mathematics. I probably should apologize as well – my announcement stated March 8th, but that was before I really looked at the dates involved, so we did, alas, miss the international women’s day. We haven’t had quite the rush that Mark CC enjoyed, but we’ll make a good one even so.
First out, from the first half of our submissions, we have a grand tour of didactic topics, starting out with Michael Tang, who shows us why negative times negative is positive, with a touch of ring theory into the mix. Following that, Rebecca Newburn discusses equation solving strategies and Laurie Bluedorn takes a historical view on the age of introduction of formal arithmetic. To finish it up, jd2718 tells us about teaching complex numbers and your humble host has a manifesto of sorts about stimulating strong students.

The third carnival of mathematics is to be hosted by yours truly on the International Women’s Day (maybe we can get a theme going? Women in mathematics, anyone?). Submissions to me directly or over the submission form.

Go there. Read. There’s a LOT of good blog posts there.
