Author: Kerry Cue is a wonderfully irreverent, fun and motivating Maths blogger! I met her earlier this year and she is great. See my blog post – 35 years. If you can’t find something interesting on her blog you are either blind or dead. In her words:
“I’ve combined my nutty-professor love of maths with my off-the-wall humour in a fun, media-savvy maths blog called mathspig. It’s a resource to help teachers make maths a funorama for kids and support those teachers that already do it. This blog is about maths. It’s about FUN maths, MEDIA maths and especially DUMB maths. Anyone can tackle these problems. You don’t have to understand squiggly, complex equations scribbled all over a black or a whiteboard. This blog simply encourages clear thinking with numbers. It is mathspigs objective to stick a snout in the media trough and sniff out the maths rubbish. And have some fun too!!!!!!
