I received from sxyskeksis!

It's all so awesome, I want to take better photos tomorrow in daylight, but for now:

Group shot:


She handwrote what I have decided to call "The Bag of Knowledge":

(click the photo to get to my flickr, where you can really see all the detail)
The best part of the Bag of Knowledge is the fact that she included a bunch of quotes, including one that I mentioned my favorite professor always said:


Next is the fabulous Unit Circle Clock:

I almost wish the semester hadn't ended so I could hang it in my office and show it off to people right away!

And finally, and most fantastically, the most awesome topology craft ever in the whole universe:


I really need to take a better photo of this, it's amazing in person.  I'm hoping for a lot of sun tomorrow so I can get some good ones.

In the meantime, some closeups of the insanely cute ants:







Thank you so much, sxyskeksis!  I hope you like yours half as much as I love this!

I'm so glad you, Raindancing, and everyone likes it!! I had no idea how hard it would be to find math craft ideas!

I don't know if you've put batteries in it yet, but the Unit Circle Clock runs backwards! Since the Unit Circle is defined counterclockwise I thought it would be appropriate. Not as useful, but more fun!! (I can tell you how to reverse it if you would like).

The ants were based on this MC Escher drawing, Red Ants.

Here is my photo of it.

It sits in a few different positions, and it should be possible to mount it on a wall pretty easily. It's made out of wooden beads, chopsticks, copper wire, and vinyl covered wire hardware cloth. The hardware cloth was a great find! I was trying to use plastic cross stitch sheets but they didn't work nearly was well and the holes were way too small.

I debated on writing "Warning, Instruments of Math Instruction" on the bag. I just opened my calc book and randomly wrote equations, formulas, and identities on it with a fabric ink pen. It probably would have worked out MUCH better on a smoother fabric; this is made of rough duck cloth. But I definately want to make myself one now! In fact, I'll probably be making myself all of these things!  Smiley

I also included an awesome Math Calendar that I bought for myself but never ever have time to look at. I hope that Raindancing will have some fun with it.
