Reader’s brain is variable. It changes according to what it read. I have changed the pattern of selection and style of writing about BLOG OF THE MONTH. At the beginning of August, I planned that I will select some blogs from the education blog-o-sphere and will award to appreciate them for their excellent work. I know these awards will probably never make a difference but hope too that they’ll keep their good works on. So, here is the list of my 10 most favorite blogs, one of which, Gowers’s Weblog, is my Blog of The Month, for October 2011.
- Gower’s Weblog:
Blog of the Month for October 2011.
Prof. Timothy Gowers (a.k.a. Tim Gowers) is a field medalist and an eminent mathematician. He is a member of the Department of Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics at Cambridge University . He is ideal of many student and math majors including me. I was not a huge fan of his writing as he has written only a few articles after I joined the web. But as he started his series on ‘CAMBRIDGE TEACHING‘, I have become a regular reader of his weblog. One math student must read his posts on Cambridge Teaching.
Most Recent Post: Basic logic — relationships between statements — converses and contrapositives
- Abstract Nonsense:
Second blog, after Gowers’s weblog to be listed twice as my favorites and first to be my favorite consecutively for two months. Abstract Nonsense is Alex Youcis‘s blog on theoretical mathematics in which he proves (..that he’s theoretical..) one theorem per post. It could be the BLOG OF THE MONTH, if Gowers had not started his cambridge teaching series. An awesome and must read blog for math majors.
