Plus Magazine: Maths in a Minute

Readers who appreciate the beauty of mathematics but who are also short on time may want to check out Maths in a Minute. This article series from Plus Magazine (last featured in the 8-22-2014 Scout Report) "explores key mathematical concepts in just a few words." Here, visitors will find dozens of fairly short pieces explaining a wide variety of mathematical concepts in approachable ways. Recent topics include the math behind Sydney's famous opera house, an exploration of the best method for sorting a stack of pancakes by size using only a spatula, and an introduction to the concept of higher dimensions. Articles are typically accompanied by images and links to additional information for those who would like to explore further. Many of the Maths in a Minute pieces are written by the magazine's editors, Marianne Freiberger and Rachel Thomas, and the series also occasionally features contributions from guest mathematicians.
