In case people aren’t aware, Steven Strogatz of Cornell University has been writing a very nice column for the online version of the New York Times over the last few weeks, explaining math to the masses. He started with counting, and has worked his way up to differential geometry (!) this week. There will be a total of 15 installments. The most recent one is here, and the others are linked toward the bottom of the article.
