Bow Star

This one looks very similar to the kind of bows we use to decorate gifts. For once, the quotation actually matches the image.

Today's Gratitude Item: That when people who don't know me well see my work, they assume that I'm an artist and are surprised that I teach Mathematics.

Can't you be both? :-) The two are not mutually exclusive.

Though I was meaning you can be both an artist and a Mathematics teacher, I'm reminded of Bret Victor, an interface designer that's experimenting with new interfaces to Math with one of the goals being that it becomes a creative medium so to speak. He calls it his Kill Math project.

Of course it is possible to be both - but as people, we like to simplify as much as possible and often that means thinking of others in only one light.

Thanks for the link - it looks really interesting.
