EQUATIONS are now a monthly staple in Wired

 A great teaching tool is now appearing every month in the media!  Starting back in May, mathematics writer Julie Rehmeyer started writing a new column in Wired Magazine.  An entire page features one equation along with a fabulous graphic (much better than the silly one I made to the right) to help bring it to life.  There are even sliders on the variables to help readers understand the range of possible scenarios modeled by the equation.

May: Carbon Emissions
June: Phantom Traffic Jams
July: 3-D Rendering
August: Power of Waves
September: Roller Coasters
