One of the posts listed below went hot, so I skipped it when creating the circle, but I'm including a link for completeness. Another of my recent posts turned out to be a reshare from a poster who was repeatedly plagiarising from someone else's mathematics blog, so I have omitted that post. I also omitted my most recent post, but I will include it next time. Everyone mentioned below is also included in the circle.One of my Christmas treeshttps://plus.google.com/101584889282878921052/posts/FwG8cpc29UrChristmas villagehttps://plus.google.com/101584889282878921052/posts/ePEDUgQ6m58Thomas Jackson's series of robot photographshttps://plus.google.com/101584889282878921052/posts/WnXT3GaWoxkA video I took with Google Glasshttps://plus.google.com/101584889282878921052/posts/Q1VAK5zRuNiAnimation of least common multiples (reshared from +Vincent Knight)https://plus.google.com/101584889282878921052/posts/caS8ZWFu5PY10 second exposure (reshared from +Ralph Reichert)https://plus.google.com/101584889282878921052/posts/AaPpWYnDoXjIntransitive dicehttps://plus.google.com/101584889282878921052/posts/eq9eHus2wQPPicture of a tree near my househttps://plus.google.com/101584889282878921052/posts/DPFA6JNc6xJGoogle Glass invitationhttps://plus.google.com/101584889282878921052/posts/G28Fn2gdo9WGeneralized knight's tourshttps://plus.google.com/101584889282878921052/posts/7czA3jweXBAA lily pad (reshared from +J Thomas Horton)https://plus.google.com/101584889282878921052/posts/5NeZwpBfrNGMathematical origamihttps://plus.google.com/101584889282878921052/posts/8kSwoFdUKvUMy cat drinking out of a candlehttps://plus.google.com/1015848892828782013-12-05 16:44:20480216141241CC G+

Chill Ideaz Jay Beek Rocksuperstar0Here's the latest update of my Engagers circle. The last version of this circle was close to full, so I started it again from scratch. This circle includes people who have recently engaged with one of my posts in the form of +1s, comments and public reshares.I might have missed some people because of limitations of the Google+ interface. Fortunately, the next release of +Circloscope on June 28 is likely to include new features that make circles like this one much easier to create.I've included 100 guest members in this circle, taken from my Favourites circle, which I haven't shared in a while.Like my previous circle share, this is a Showcase circle! What this means is that everyone is invited to leave a comment on (the original post of) this circle share containing a link to one of your own posts. Ideally, this should be something that you posted recently and that you are particularly pleased with. (Don't post spam though; I will delete it.)2013-11-24 00:22:24405014CC G+

scikit-learn: machine learning and more in Python

Blown away by how much great stuff keeps getting added to scikit-learn (includes classification, regression, clustering, dimensionality reduction...).  In particular I'm a big fan of using CART (decision trees) and for one of our MSc projects this summer think I'll get the student using Random Forests (under Ensemble methods in scikit-learn) and exploring fuzzy tree algorithms, all in +Python.   

Helpful cheat sheet: http://goo.gl/BvdZ7Q
Found also a neat post by +Miguel Angel on several tutorials: http://goo.gl/i2ESJ6

Enjoy :)

For those taking A-level or GSCE Mathematics papers very soon (or indeed similar exam levels worldwide),  Dr Mark Jones from the University of South Wales has some awesome resources available on his MyALevelMathsTutor +YouTube channel.  Thought I'd flag these up if they can be of assistance to anyone.

I'm famous on the internet! (and xm radio) And I took +Paul Harper with me!

I am a +Major League Soccer fan, and I regularly listen to the podcast ExtraTime Radio. Lately, they have been talking about Panini Stickers, so when Paul wrote up an estimate of the cost of a full sticker book yesterday, I made the crazy decision to actually write an email to the show about it.

And today they read it on the air. It was the very last thing, so if you are at all interested, jump to the 49:15 mark.

So, you see, Paul and I are kinda a big deal around here. Even if Paul did all the work, I'm taking some credit.

Collecting Panini World Cup Stickers: a case of the modified coupons collector’s problem!

(or mathematics and soccer stickers – and why it will cost collectors more than you might imagine!..)

My son recently picked up for free in the shops a Panini FIFA World Cup Brazil sticker album and has been bugging us since about spending his pocket money on buying packets of stickers (at a cost in the UK of 50p for 5 stickers in a packet)….  Well I collected them when his age - in fact I completed the 1982 Spain World Cup album at the age of 10 (the same age as my son is now) (see pic including the Italian team who won the tournament that year) and probably spent a year’s worth of pocket money in the process…  However filling a Panini album has become progressively more expensive since then; not just because there are more teams competing now, but because Panini have becomemore creati... more »

I first met Thomas and his parents whilst on holiday in Austria 13 years ago. They were sat at the next table for dinner every evening in the hotel restaurant. I recall how Thomas, then aged just 9, was mostly buried in his Harry Potter book and, much to my pleasure, said he enjoyed mathematics at school. I was just in the throws of writing up my own PhD thesis and would talk to him about what mathematics research was really like (although mostly he stuck to his Harry Potter!). We kept in touch with the family since.

Fast forward 13 years and Thomas is a top maths student at Newcastle University and about to embark on a PhD himself. I was really hoping I might be able to supervise him - that would have been a particularly cool story - but he was awarded funding to stay in Newcastle. Really appreciated him asking me for advice during these years and been my pleasure to help when able. ... more »

Have you ever gotten an email from a student asking you for a favor and thought to yourself, "This is not how you ask me for something"? My latest blog post gives students some advice about asking their professors for something.

Just finished my last teaching session of this academic year which included a flappy bird competition (with #bribentives  - easter eggs). Naturally this was to reinforce the mathematical concepts taught during the module (Markov models, stochastic processes etc)...  

Well done to Geraint for scoring 17 and winning.  And thanks to all the class who have been a whole bunch of fun this year - interactive, thoughtful etc.  I hope they enjoyed the module as much as I enjoyed delivering it.  The #bribentives  during the last session and just before end of module feedback is again purely coincidental.  Apparently there are colleagues who understand and  teach game theory and yet give out their bribentives early in the semester... seems too premature to me ;) )

He emailed me today asking for a list of stuff he could look at before his placement started. I thought it would be helpful to put the list up online in case anyone wanted to add to it. I wouldn't want James to not have enough to do...

April is Mathematics Awareness Month! 

The +American Mathematical Society, The American Statistical Association, the +Mathematical Association of America, and the  Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics have announced that the theme for Mathematics Awareness Month (MAM), April 2014, is Mathematics, Magic, and Mystery.

MAM 2014 will be dedicated to the presentation of 30 magical, mysterious, mathematical phenomena. These are gems that can easily be appreciated by anyone, from young child to professional mathematician. Each day in April, a new phenomenon will be revealed at www.mathaware.org. There will be an introductory video along with supplementary materials for those who wish to attain a deeper understanding or use the phenomenon in a classroom demonstration.

The phrasing of the 2014 MAM theme derives from the title of a 1956 book in which Martin Gardner—apre... more »

I've no idea how robust these World University Rankings are, but I guess at least the University is pleased that our group (OR and Statistics) is now one of 5 subjects at +Cardiff University in the top 200 :)

"Empower students with tools, opportunity & freedom, trust them, and they'll show you how awesome they can be"  (+Gary Wood, University of Sheffield).  

This was my favourite quote from a very enjoyable "Towards a A-Z of Enterprise in the Curriculum" event  (http://goo.gl/ASuoAM) with 6 speakers from across disciplines sharing how they have embedded enterprise/employability skills into their teaching.   

Other than my favourite quote, +Vincent Knight was winner of most energetic talk (http://goo.gl/e3sbVV) but definitely Dr Jeremy Evas from Cardiff School of Welsh gave most entertaining talk (it even included a cute photo of a cat...)

Looking forward to listening and learning from today's speakers at Embedded Enterprise Exchange event, +Cardiff University.  

Hey, a familiar looking face in the programme!  (I believe this photo was taken in NZ on a 'work' trip :) )

Taking place in the beautiful Aberdare Hall.

Newton's Notebook
via +Miguel Angel

There's something amazing about being able to (virtually) turn the pages of a notebook written and drawn in by Isaac Newton in his own hand. When he's written in English rather than Latin, and his thoughts can flow easily (via a lot of technology) from his brain to your own it is somehow even more rewarding.

Here is Isaac Netwon's college notebook: http://goo.gl/y3sWWn

Visualizing Git Concepts with D3

An interactive website designed to help people understand some basic git concepts visually.

Based on D3.js and SVG, not many commands/scenarios available yet, but it's an interesting tool for learning Git.

All students should start the academic year with an A grade and should never be told they are failing, according to a this guide for teachers recently published by the Royal Society of Arts .

Pupils should be awarded the top grade automatically and told to work to maintain it, so that teachers can harness the motivating power of ‘loss aversion’.  Teachers should use ‘not yet’ grades rather than 'failed'.

Is is just me, or does this seem nonsense?  Surely: To learn to succeed you must first learn to fail.  Isn't it much better to have an  honest starting point and feedback, and help them aspire to better grades?  One of the major problems I believe we are already witnessing at University is that students now arrive not knowing how to 'fail', or even that it is entirely acceptable and healthy to fail, to then learn and aspire to do better consequently.  Teaching in s... more »

Spent this morning chairing an Advisory Board for our +Cardiff Maths MSc OR/Stats programmes.  Very grateful that we have senior people from industry advising on the content of our degrees.   Afterwards (pic) they get to have lunch and chat with the students.  Representatives are from: British Airways, Lloyds Banking Group, Office for National Statistics, Welsh Government, Ernst & Young, Nationwide, Building Society, Admiral Insurance and TATA Steel

 +Vincent Knight was meant to give a talk about flipped classrooms and OOP, but instead was called to this fancy event in Westminster ;-) (http://goo.gl/nzf6QA).  So he very kindly put together a screencast which I played to them and they really enjoyed hearing about how we teach SAS, R and Python. 

One thing they now seemed keen on us to include in the programme is data visualisation.  I've seen few posts recently aboutGoogle F... more »

Really nice to grab this photo this afternoon when everyone happened to be in the department together.  Relates to an earlier post by +Vincent Knight (http://goo.gl/ms25Zq)

I read a lot on G+ about issues of lack of women in STEM, and I've no doubt many of them are true and that this needs to be urgently addressed, but here at least in the OR Group, School of Mathematics, +Cardiff University I'm very proud we have so many female mathematicians employed in the healthcare modelling unit that we have established (+Julie Vile, +Izabela Komenda, +Cheryl Voake, Penny Holborn, Tracey England and Jenny Morgan are all research associates, and +Elizabeth Rowse is a funded PhD student).

Ooh, famous in the newspapers!  Appeared in today's Western Mail (national newspaper for Wales).  Doesn't seem to be an online version of the article, so rather quaintly just purchased a hard copy, and +Julie Vile (whom I pictured with and is quoted in the article), apparently has purchased a copy for all members of her family so no doubt sales have doubled today :)

Was written by a media manager at Cardiff University, hence the style of language.  My fav part is:

"Professor Paul Harper, head of operational research  at Cardiff, puts it plainly: 'Maths saves lives'.  His words echo those of the great Victorians - Florence Nightingale and William Farr, who used maths to plot bodies on Crimean battlefields and pinpoint sickness on the streets of London"

Now doesn't that all sound rather fancy!  I'll wait for the call to be sent toCrimea... more »

Sweet. According to the Sunday Times list out today, my hometown of Monmouth is the third best place to live in Britain. Having just read the full list of top 101, can't say it is a thoroughly scientific analysis, but in my unbiased view I would totally agree it is a special place to be :)

Also just seen Wales was voted best place to visit 2014 by Rough Guide readers worldwide (http://goo.gl/fGRC7U)

Hour of Code

I know I've gone on before about how I feel it very important for our kids to learn coding, but just to reinforce this to me during the last week, one of my own kids and their whole class sat down and completed the hour of code. (http://csedweek.org/).  They seemed to really enjoy this and came home enthused by it.   There is a really nice honestly written account of this by a parent at http://goo.gl/Tz33EZ "Okay, 60 minutes and counting. Here we go.  I've got an hour to convince my kids that programming is for them..."

It's truly great to see such initiatives, but what about beyond the hour, after all it is one thing completing the exercises - check! - and then imagining we have a new generation of coders, and completely another thing to build on that interest and for parents and teachers to help nurture interest...  Here a few examplesI... more »

I was really pleased my 9 yo came home today from school genuinely excited about π (he'd been calculating circumferences and areas of circles).  I felt it was sad though he'd just been told to believe it is 3.14... So I took the opportunity to show him something I was shown when I was his age that helped sparked my interest in mathematics.  It was kind of special sitting down with my eldest and recalling all those years ago being shown the same.  It simply involved cutting up the circle into thin wedges (triangles) and rearranging them to form a rectangle.  Then we were able to write down the expressions of the area of both the circle and rectangle, measure the length of the rectangle and hence estimate pi.  We did the same for different size circles to see if we got the same value approximately.  He thought this was pretty neat.  We talked about if the slices we thinner and how this wouldeffect ... more »

Boom!  With a full 13 minutes and 50 seconds to spare before the deadline, our Horizon2020 (European Union) grant funding proposal for €5.6m has been submitted.  Largely thanks to Roberto Aringhieri (University of Torino, Italy) who has been awesome and is leading the bid, but with a team effort across the partners: me and +Vincent Knight at Cardiff, KIT (Germany), Twente (Netherlands), Ecole nationale supérieure des mines de Saint-Étienne (France) and Koc (Turkey).

Been real busy as yesterday evening I also submitted a first stage bid for a £3m programme grant (I’m leading on this one and involves 5 other UK Universities).

So I guess all I do now is sit back and wait for the money to roll in, right?

Was spotted by a talent scout and this morning having a trial with Cardiff City football club (soccer). Expect to be in the first squad for next Saturday and can kiss goodbye to my academic salary, long hours, my love for university central administrators etc etc.

OK, so really quite dull by comparison and here for a half day Welsh research funding dissemination event.  Oh well... Nice venue mind :)

"Nathan is very, very excited about this. He says it's the best thing that's ever happened to him in his life so far. 'This is different,' he told me. 'This is England against Wales.'"

Nice article on why this fixture is special.  124 matches have been played since the first encounter in 1881: England have won 56, Wales 56 and 12 draws. "With honours even and the Championship title up for grabs, expect the encounter to be furious" :)

I was invited to sit in +Vincent Knight's first year Computing for Mathematics UG lecture this morning.  It took the form of a "Grand Council" whereby each of the 30+ groups had no more than 1 minute to share with the whole class what their 'company" was working on (taking the form of a 'product' (e.g. app) that has to be built using +Python).  

So I sat in the back row with my macbook and thought I might be able to also sneak in some work (tut tut); but I was TOTALLY absorbed by the session and was blown away by (a) the range of neat product ideas, and (b) the quality of the vast majority of the 1 minute talks. Standing in front of 160+ of and presenting concisely (and in many cases humorously) to your peers in the first year of your maths degree is no mean feat. This is something so different from their usual modules, but personally I think this totallyc... more »

Just been approached by someone here in Cardiff who runs Trip Database (www.tripdatabase.com/about), a widely used clinical search engine, used by health professionals across the globe (apparently they get 100 -110,000 visits per month).  He's heard about our interest in social network analysis and mathematical modelling, and would like some help to analyse the Trip database.  

This diagram is taken from  a similar study: Clickstream Data Yields High-Resolution Maps of Science (http://bit.ly/OM9EW1) in PLOS ONE.  It visualises the relationships between journals according to user clickstreams and describes a first-order Markov chain model  to capture the structural features of its underlying clickstream model by comparing the latter to journal centrality rankings and an alternative model of journal relations derived from classification data.

Good luck to all our +Cardiff Maths MSc OR/Stats students who throughout the next 3 days are giving talks about their self-study topic  as part of our communication and research skills week (for the past few months they have been working on a comprehensive literature review of an OR/Stats topic of their choice).  Then on Thursday and Friday they are all working on a group assignment using +Python to be run like a hackathon with +Vincent Knight and others very kindly running :)

A few photos from this weekend's Southwestern Undergraduate Mathematics Research Conference (SUnMaRC) at Mesa Community College.  NAU took 14 students, most of which gave talks.  I was really impressed with the quality of the student talks, in general, but I was especially pleased with how well NAU's students did.  I hope to write up a short blog post about what three of my research students presented on.

If Wales did the Winter Olympics...

This is my kids entry for the school Eisteddfod. They were asked to make a model of "sheep, how you wouldn't usually see them..." So we have sheep slalom skiing, sheep snowboarding, sheep figure skating pairs, sheep curling . Surely Wales must win one medal at least? :) Think they did a really cool job between them.
