Math Joke of the Day

Why don't mathematicians hang out in the sun?

Who needs the sun? They can use cos and sin to get a tan!

The Competition

What's going on and Who's Behind it?

NUMBERS is a joint project of D-Drive Lab (Dalhousie Distributed Research Institute and Virtual Environment), and NSERC (The Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada). It explores the fascinating landscape of mathematical constants, their significance, their history, and neat little tidbits that one might not otherwise hear about.
