The nation presses on through week 32 of Trumpian antics… and the math bits continue coming:

**1)**Mathologer, covering a lot of ground in 15 minutes:

**2)**A compendium of math games (h/t Sherri Burroughs):

**3)**Two doses of Ben Orlin in a single week (I feel like a glutton):

**4)**

**NY Times**obituary for the father of ‘fuzzy logic’ (h/t Steve Strogatz):

**5)**The latest

*London Mathematical Society Newsletter*available online here (h/t Peter Cameron):

…and latest issue of “

*The Variable*” from the Saskatchewan Mathematics Teachers’ Society (h/t Egan Chernoff):**6)**H/T to Keith Devlin for tweeting out “please read” this March post by Tracy Zager (read the comments as well) on the interplay of math and language:

**7)**Taxicab geometry via

**:**

*Futility Closet***8)**Robert Talbert’s one-year plan for converting to flipped learning:

**9)**An introduction, from Deborah Mayo, to Charles Peirce’s take on induction:

[p.s… for anyone deeply interested in Peirce’s work, Jon Awbrey’s blog often addresses it:

**10)**The one-and-only Jordan Ellenberg is featured this week on the “

*My Favorite Theorem*” podcast, and he explains a linkage between Fermat's Little Theorem and Pascal's Triangle:

On a side note, lest anyone hasn't heard, by the time you read this, and after a 13-year journey of discovery, the Cassini spacecraft will have crashed into planet Saturn this morning, with a lot of coverage on the Web (not of the actual crash event).

**11)**Brian Hayes' latest book of essays, "**Foolproof, and Other Mathematical Meditations**" should start showing up in bookstores any day now.On a side note, lest anyone hasn't heard, by the time you read this, and after a 13-year journey of discovery, the Cassini spacecraft will have crashed into planet Saturn this morning, with a lot of coverage on the Web (not of the actual crash event).
