What happens when you remove limits from calculus? In my latest blog post, I explore an interesting definition for the derivative that avoids limits altogether and discover a new appreciation for limits and their place in mathematics.

I just published a new blog post about one of the hardest problems in graph theory.

I also submitted this post to 3blue1brown's Summer of Math Exposition contest 🤞🏼

Started a community
Made a new YouTube video
I'm building a community of recreational mathematicians who enjoy exploring mathematics with code!

Every Monday I post a video with a solution to the last week's problem, as well as the statement for the next week's challenge. And you can join in! Every week I feature one or two awesome solutions from the community.

I've had folks solve problems on a Commodore 64 in BASIC, and submit expertly crafted Jupyter Notebooks written in Python.

Sound like something you'd be interested in? Check out this playlist to see the kinds of problems we've been working on and how you can join in the fun: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLLIPpKeh9v3Y3ZXXsz9lVUFqQBx34BK56
