Welcome to this website! It is a work in progress and I will be adding to it on a weekly basis. This website is dedicated to writing about all mathematical topics that interest me and many others. Some of these articles take the form of dialogues or fictional tales. Below is the complete list of all articles I have written so far. As this is currently a fairly small website, I will have a list of categories once it becomes larger. I also have a puzzle and there will be a new one every month. I will also post solutions at the end of each month.
I have not updated this for a long time as I have been writing a book, together with David Darling. The book is titled Weird Maths and is aimed at the intelligent layperson. It will be published in March 2018. We have also been working on a series of videos to accompany the book. They can be found here.
