Happy Easter

Google - easter

Google graph – click on the image.

A reminder that you can just type a function into Google and its graph will be returned!

Darth Vader curve

WolframAlpha of course can show you some graphs of Easter eggs!
I noticed whilst using WolframAlpha today random suggestions of queries popping up that somebody out there thought I might enjoy (very worrying how right they are!). This popped up – I had not realised that typing for example Darth Vader curve into WolframAlpha would give me just that!

Looking for Easter ideas and resources I came across these Easter games on the excellent mathsticks.com site which has an extensive collection of resources for younger students ( a site I have recommended for younger students).

On the subject of Easter eggs I must return to this definition.
WolframAlpha – a little fun! 

Happy Easter

Happy Easter 2012! (Click the link and WolframAlpha will tell you more than you wanted to know about Easter Sunday!)

Since it’s a holiday we should be relaxing! A conversation on Twitter (click the link for an updated post on Twitter) this morning reminded me of the excellent Set Game – a daily puzzle which is provided by the new York Times for age 6 – adult.

For many more puzzles and games see one of the companion blogs to this on Strategy Games and Puzzles. 

Wishing you all a very Happy Easter.
