Do you ever play with math?
Do you ever play with math? What are your favorite puzzles?


Is hacking all the databases on webwebs


thats hot.
lol wut? 

wasting away on the sidonia


Oh hell yeah bruh check this out. get a math girl to solve it. It works sometimes.

Not really. I'm actually teaching myself remedial math right now. It's been a couple years since I did anything involving math at all I haven't touched the subject since highschool. So, anyway, I intend to get through introductory calculus eventually, then learn some introductory logic, and maybe look at historical texts. I'm starting with the first highschool Singapore text.
I guess I play with it a little bit, in that the text has puzzles disguised as guessandcheck type problems, and I'm trying to either deductively find each answer, or work out a general solution that can be applied to the rest of the similar problems. Out of curiosity, what kind of playing did you have in mind? 



I hate math with a passion


It's time

Whats that? Its a bird? Its a plane? No! Its....a Masochist! Yaaayyy!!!


I have a mathematics minor, so I deal with it a decent bit. Not sure what you mean by playing with it, but I crunch numbers in games to find the best solution to whatever issue ails me.

Out of curiosity, what kind of playing did you have in mind? How remedial? I'm an engineering major, so understanding the levels of math is kind of interesting to me. Spoiler Alert! Click to show or hide Also, if you have any questions, feel free to hit me up As for historical texts, Look at the Golden Age of Islam for basically everything algebra The Greeks were top dogs for Geometry (and logic, and least the basics) And for calculus, look at Newtons' Principia Mathematica As for OP, Not specifically, but a lot of the things I do for fun involve math. Anything fun related to my field definitely has math. Not as much pure math. Speaking of fun pure math, though, has anyone else noticed that the differences in squares forms the sequence of odd numbers? 0 to 1 is a difference of 1 1 to 4 is a difference of 3 4 to 9 is a difference of 5 9 to 16 is a difference of 7 16 to 25 is a difference of 9 25 to 36 is a difference of 11 36 to 49 is a difference of 13 49 to 64 is a difference of 15 And so on (I presume, I haven't proven it) And for anyone interested in fun number stuff in general, try this https://www.youtube.com/user/numberphile 

To be input later


What, precisely, do you mean by playing with math? Just little algebraic logic puzzles, or modeling?
I don't really do much of the former, but from time to time I think it's interesting to model a situation or effect, though I'm pretty awful at programming so I have to rely on existing software to graph my functions for me to compare with data.

sort of play
you take your temperature  dew point x400 = base height it will give you the base height of your cumulus clouds but only accurate over land and not mountainous environments

I have a strong dislike towards math, so I don't do it myself, but both my father and little sister do. My father is currently an economy teacher, and my little sister is 11, so there's quite a difference between the games/puzzles they solve :p

(n+1)^2  n^2 = n^2 + 2n + 1  n^2 = 2n + 1 which is always odd, so the difference of two consecutive squares is always odd. for more "serious" puzzlers, there's the riddler puzzles comes from different areas of math. sometimes you need to use your creativity / intuition to solve the puzzle.

I don't have the motivation for recreational mathematics, but there's a YouTube channel of high quality math animations and explanations I found two weeks ago: 3blue1brown. The video maker introduced me to a recreational math site I later subscribed to for reviewing computer data structures and algorithms: it's called brilliant.org.


Since everything lies open to view there is nothing to explain.


Maybe when I have nothing to live for, I'll play math. It might kill me faster also.
