New This Month: The Math Formula that Spells Your Name!
The Global Math Project and the National Math Festival have teamed up to celebrate Global Math Week October 11-17th with fun formulas for everyone. Come get your very own Personal Polynomial, the math formula that spells your name! Whether your name is three letters or 30, this magic machine can always find the equation that adds up to.. you! As a special treat, your polynomial can be saved as an image to share with friends, family, and classmates.
Thanks to Dr. James Tanton (Global Math Project), Dr. Branden Stone (Adelphi University), and Travis Sperry (Math Plus Academy) for bringing this creation to life with support from the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI).
