Girls are evil…?

By Murray Bourne, 09 Sep 2007

Sorry, girls. This "proof that girls are evil" is here purely for its mathematical value.

Please don't shoot me - I'm only the messenger.

Actually, this might be a fun way to get students thinking more about math notation and its meaning.

Poetry involving Greek symbols, anyone?

HTML: You can use simple tags like <b>, <a href="...">, etc.

To enter math, you can can either:

  1. Use simple calculator-like input in the following format (surround your math in backticks, or qq on tablet or phone):
    `a^2 = sqrt(b^2 + c^2)`
    (See more on ASCIIMath syntax); or
  2. Use simple LaTeX in the following format. Surround your math with \( and \).
    \( \int g dx = \sqrt{\frac{a}{b}} \)
    (This is standard simple LaTeX.)

NOTE: You can mix both types of math entry in your comment.
