In this series of posts, we’ll be featuring mathematical podcasts from all over the internet, by speaking to the creators of the podcast and asking them about what they do. We spoke to Marshall Poe from the New Books Network about the NBN podcast New Books in Mathematics.
We’ve noticed a lot of great books that have been released recently aimed at primary age children (under about 11). We thought it might be useful, for those who know children of those ages, to put together a list of these titles, and some classics, in case you might be looking for some gift ideas…
Given that it’s conventional to give objects to other people around this time of year, we thought we’d collect together some suggestions for things we think you, a mathematically interested person, might like to buy for your mathematical friends (or add to your list before you send it off to Santa).
The next issue of the Carnival of Mathematics, rounding up blog posts from the month of November, is now online at Sam Hartburn’s blog. The Carnival rounds up maths blog posts from all over the internet, occasionally including some from our own Aperiodical. See our Carnival of Mathematics page for more information.
Here’s some of the latest mathematical news and goings-on from the month of November.
