Additional Math Pages & Resources

Math is an international language

There's a small counter on the Excel Math blog page that counts our visitors and figures out what countries they are from. I was astonished yesterday to see that we've had visitors from 77 countries around the world. Thank you for taking a few moments from your busy lives to learn more about math on our web page!

The following list includes the flags of all our blog's visitors. I also noted the 27 countries which I have been privileged to travel. Thanks for welcoming me and my family and friends. In most places we have been able to drive, camp, eat and enjoy conversations with local residents. I don't even want to calculate how much money I have spent on all those trips!

For those of you whose countries I haven't yet seen, perhaps someday I can visit and learn how you use math. At least I will be able to work out how to buy a meal and a souvenir ...
 

We've had special relationships with a few places: the UK where I lived and worked and have an adopted second family; Canada where I worked off and on for 4 years; France where I encountered Citroens, great food, fine wine and fabulous friends; and Switzerland, which enticed me into Swiss watches.
