Recap for November 2013

Sadly, I waited far too long to do this post. Only 3 days until our next meeting, and my memory is letting me down! I do know that we had great fun playing with iota, and we did try our best to wrap a cube. Hmm…I shall do better next time!

So, fellow Winnipeg jammers, please do help me out here. I will add some photos, as I know that we took quite a few that night. Our resident twit was enjoying the camera on his new phone, so I should be able to include some of those in this post in the near future.

Looking forward to our December meeting.

See you soon!

Recap for October 2013

Another meeting and another new face at the meeting! It is always great to meet new people. We introduced our new member to what happens at a MathJam by playing a few rounds of SET and solving some problems. We dug into some problems that @stecks shared with us, and we did our best to find those elegant solutions that we knew would be hiding within.

After discussing some number theory and number tricks for multiplication, we tweeted out one of our favourite problems…the train and the bridge. @icecolbeveridge,was one of the first to reply via @mathsjam, and he liked the problem so much he and @reflectivemaths featured it in their most recent episode of Wrong, But Useful podcast. These podcasts are great fun and are well worth the listen!

A wonderful mathsy evening, indeed!
