Another Math Comic

by

We recently discovered a series of math comics because first a commenter and then Mike himself linked to us on Spiked Math.   Yay — more math comics! So as the weekend approaches, you can treat yourself to:

042-superman

or

015-cantor-liked-his-new-house

or

014-alex-worked-at-kmart

or this one which is, of course, near and dear to my heart:

012-the-prof-liked-xi

All of these are copyrighted, but available for non-commercial use.

    Hi – I’d like to include these posts about math comics in the next Math Teachers at Play carnival (next week). Does this sound OK?
    Thanks,

    Dan, that’d be great — thanks for thinking of us!

    My calculus teacher in college told me he had had a math professor at San Jose State who loved alpha. This prof would use alpha routinely for coefficients for polynomials (distinguishing among them with subscripts). He used them for the entries of general matrices or determinants (using double subscripts). I don’t know if he used them for tensor components, in which case the debauch of sub- and superscripts could have been awesome.

    I’m itching to us xi now…
