As of now, my blog is being migrated here. You can find all the old content over here.

Today we are visiting a specific instance of a well-known *basic* mathematics game, the 24 Game. The "24 Game" is usually played with younger students because it helps them develop skills related to the basic arithmetic operations.

Today is the day! Today is the day we take our APL programs and interpret them, so that something like `÷ 1 2 3 -⍨ 1.1 2.2 3.3`

can output `10 5 3.33333333`

.

Take out a piece of paper and a pencil, I am going to ask you to write some letters in your sheet of paper and then I am going to challenge you to fold the sheet of paper... with a twist!

\(n\) mathematicians with numbered party hats gather around in a circle... It is a matter of life or death!

Let's build a simple APL interpreter! APL is an array-oriented programming language I picked up recently. The ease with which I can write code related to mathematics, its strange built-ins (which look like `⍴`

, `⍨`

, `⍒`

or `⍣`

) and the fact that it is executed from right to left make it a fresh learning experience!

*Py-don'ts*
are anti-tips for writing good Python code. Sometimes learning what is good isn't enough. You have to compare it with what is bad as well!

In high school I had a colleague that had his birthday on the same day as I did. What a coincidence, right? Right..?

Is it true that every integer you can think of has a multiple written out only with \(0\)s and \(1\)s?

This post's format will be a bit different from the usual and the first of a series of posts of this type. In this post, I will state a problem and then present my solution.

In this post I just ramble a bit through some mathematician's definition of what a recursive function is...

The filled Julia set is a really cool fractal that kind of resembles the Mandelbrot set!

I have always liked the concept of fractal. They are very beautiful, they have a notion of infinity embedded in them, and they make no sense (seriously though, *self-similarity*?). How could they not be loved?

This blog post has a single purpose, which is to show you the weird game I made, inspired by Flappy Bird and my crazy English teacher.

Minesweeper has to be one of the most well-known minigames of all time, no? I spent my fair share of Sunday mornings playing minesweeper in my Windows XP computer...
