Ben and Natalie Deliver


1)  Of math tests, fair and otherwise...
Another post from Ben Orlin that had me alternating between chuckling and thinking (...and trying to figure out how he gets SO MUCH expression into stick figures!):

And YO, Ben, get your tail back over HERE... we can't be sharing your level of talent with Scotland, when you're needed badly in the U.S.! ;-)

2)  Now if you're wanting a little more serious, mind-stretching math, DO NOT MISS Natalie Wolchover's latest exquisite piece on "graph coloring" for Quanta Magazine:
