It is straightforward to show that  is perfect if ...  


Although always interested in math, I’ve never had the opportunity to have a formal math education.  I have been kicking around the idea of going back to school to pursue an advanced degree in math, because, well..math just really interests me.  I mean, who else do you know who actually reads stuff like this for fun?


There are also other ways of thinking mathematically that have always appealed to me.  For example, I find myself being fascinated by beautiful patterns – whether man-made, or in nature.  And then there’s the musical connection too…ah so, little time, so much to see; I guess that’s why this blog is called ‘Contagious Curiousity’, right?

    Mathematica is a very cool program!

    I’m only scratching the surface of it since I am using it in my continuing math education.

    Strangely, when I was younger, I was never much of a math geek. But, as I get older, I find it a very useful skill to have.

    Besides, isn’t math what us programmer types do for fun? 😉
