Blogging about math blogs is an inherently meta activity, and today it’s going to get even more meta because I’m writing about the Carnival of Mathematics, which Anna and I will be hosting here on this very blog next month.
The Carnival of Mathematics is organized by the excellent British math(s) blog The Aperiodical. The carnival is itinerant, traveling around the math blogsphere from host to host. I hosted carnival #103 at my Scientific American blog Roots of Unity, and next month’s carnival will be number 137.
I try to visit the Carnival of Mathematics every month to find gems I’ve missed and blogs I’ve never read before. I’ve lost count of how many cool math blogs I’ve added to my feed from past carnivals.
The other math blog carnival I know about is Math Teachers at Play, coordinated by Denise Gaskins and hosted by math education bloggers from around the internet. As the name suggests, it focuses more on math education from preschool to high school, and it looks like a great resource for teachers and parents.
Blog carnivals need two things: attentive hosts and enthusiastic submitters. That’s where you come in. Please submit to the carnival! We are looking for posts from roughly the past month that have amused, challenged, or delighted you. Anything mathematical is fair game. Don’t be shy—self-promotion is encouraged!
