Hop in the 145 and let's go!

**Books & Essays**

Just before this month started I got to participate in a nifty mathzine fest from Becky Warren, Chris Nho and Ayliean. Technically February, it was after Denise's edition so I'm counting it. Several of the results are on the Public Math website, which has more besides. Also see the mathszine hashtag on Twitter.

That was my introduction to Ayliean, who had some thoughts on STEMinism.

Some of those zines inspired Sophia Wood for her first Fractal Kitty zine, on the Cantor Set.

Jim Propp was musing on division by zero. History, what ifs, new possible numbers...Edmund Harriss has a new children's book out,*HELLO NUMBERS! What Can You Do?*and has been out supporting the release. Read more at Chalkdust's Math Book of the Year series. Also super curious about Eugenia Cheng's

*Molly and the Mathematical Mystery*.

**Games**

I've been making some GeoGebra for remote learning play. There's a measure division game, a fraction comparison game, a fraction addition/iteration/equivalence game and the classic Shut the Box.

**Art**

Dana Ernst shared quilts his student Michelle Reagan made on the 5 groups of order 8.

Practically a quilt, Master of the Pattern Blocks, Hana Murray, made this amazing tiling replete with dodecagons.**Wait There's More**

I found this perusing old NCTM practitioner journals for fraction tasks and it sparked some interesting conversation. Like just how many solutions are there?

And it wasn't the only time 1/3 appeared in this third month, as I saw a nifty Roger Nelson proof with out words of an odd identity.

- a mousey Bedtime math problem set
- Catriona Agg appearing at 538's the Riddler
- a math chapter book from Peggy Chambers

I enjoy putting these together, even though I am not regularly blogging myself. (Despite my best intentions...) One of the reasons I started blogging was to share and curate some of the cool things I was seeing from the amazing MTBoS, and it's still a good thing. If you're interested in hosting, just let Denise know.

NPR made a comic of this teacher's pandemic teaching story. (Less helpful, probably, McSweeney's suggestions for teacher self-care.) Hope you are taking care of you and yours, and getting vaccinated!

So long 145! Hope it was 5x5.
