Richard Green46,477Engagers Showcase Circle, December 5 2013If you received a notification, it means that you are included in my Engagers Showcase Circle. “Showcase” means that you are invited to leave a comment (on the original post) with a link to one of your own posts, which ideally should be one of your best recent posts.This circle consists of people who have engaged with one of my recent posts in the form of +1s, comments and reshares. 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+

I ran out of room, so I removed about 20 people who didn't have me circled back, and the domain error problem is (as usual) preventing me from including everyone.Many of my posts this week have been reshares. This is partly because I haven't had much time to write detailed posts, with the exception of the “apple” post below. I'm very selective about what I reshare, and careful about assigning credit, so if my reshares get more +1s than the original posts, that seems like a win-win to me.Everyone mentioned below is also included in the circle.Spongiforma squarepantsii (reshared from +Jeni Ong)https://plus.google.com/101584889282878921052/posts/Cpe8bKGfV3CAutumn Reflections (reshared from +Thomas Horton)https://plus.google.com/101584889282878921052/posts/4vGLCb9gxyhMacro photograph of a cactus (reshared from +BJ Bolender)https://plus.google.com/101584889282878921052/posts/cxWwpGkVVBBWords for apple in various European languageshttps://plus.google.com/101584889282878921052/posts/gPLVGT2ct3cReflections and Magic Balls by Marija-Luizahttps://plus.google.com/101584889282878921052/posts/8NMW2f2iSy6Fermat's Last Tweet (reshared from +Harold Hausman)https://plus.google.com/101584889282878921052/posts/MDJ2byYGrsLMy kids dressed for Halloweenhttps://plus.google.com/101584889282878921052/posts/9W1sW5RxW2nConvergent pumpkin (reshared from +Malthus John)https://plus.google.com/101584889282878921052/posts/dVDHSozpqNvJWildfire art (reshared from +Mick Hogan)https://plus.google.com/101584889282872013-11-08 23:15:10491220136264CC G+

Escher, as well as the fractal known as the Sierpinski triangle. I also posted about a sign with a typo on it, and a set of tea mugs for the kind of people who would be annoyed by such a mistake. I posted some original photography; one of my photo posts got into What's Hot, so I skipped over it when compiling this circle. I also reshared posts by +John Baez, +Arnold Hayes, +Jason Hill, and +Bo Insogna, all of whom are included in the circle.Google's persistent domain name bug has meant that I wasn't able to include everyone I wanted to in this circle. The bug is now even worse than before, and has stripped certain people out of all of my circles because of my attempt to add them to this one! I hope they fix this soon, because it's really annoying.As always, reshares of this circle are appreciated, and I look forward to seeing everyone's links.

Late start today after we've had to take Duck to the vet. He's been getting in to fights with neighbourhood cats and this time around got a nasty cut/bite/gash and it's infected... Poor dude.

Just put up a page for my first custom build (named after my first girlfriend) with the various components that I have in there. As it evolves and/or I build other machines I'll keep this list updated.

If anyone who knows anything about this stuff has any comments they'd be welcome :)

Had a nice break by finally replacing my stock heatsink. I have no idea if I really needed to do this or not but it sure looks a lot funkier now...

Student project to evaluate a flipped classroom.

I was only going to supervise one final year project next year (this one: http://goo.gl/inq9yd with +Paul Harper) but when +Imogen Dunne approached me to do another one I couldn't say no.

Imogen has worked with Paul, +Louise Orpin and I last summer and will be doing so again this summer, designing teaching resources (you can see some of her resources over at the +LearnAboutOR website).

Imogen wanted to do a final year project on pedagogy so we put together a project description and she'll be working on helping me evaluate the flipped classroom approach I use in my first year coding class.

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 »

This weekend I put together a Tkinter GUI for labeling images data for machine learning applications. I'm working on digit recognition, and I have a ton of data in the form of PNG images that I need to label. This application allows me to quickly associate labels with images. #python   #tkinter   #machinelearning

Do as I say not as I do...

I'm always telling my students to stay away from a computer before they start coding anything. That it's important to make sure they understand what they want to do before rushing in to code...

Finally had a couple of hours of quiet time this am to work on some code and it took me about 30 minutes to do something I had been trying to get done all week by fitting in 15 minutes of coding here and there... This morning I stayed away from my computer for 20 minutes and wrote the code in 10...

Achievement unlocked: standing desk

My man-room has gone through some cool upgrades this week: a new case and PSU for my computer and a standing desk.

It's actually just a simple shelf table thing from Ikea but it should do the job for now :) 

It folds away and is on the opposite side of the room to my 'sitting desk' so I can just fold it out to work on my laptop when I need to change positions...

Great to see GitHub nominated for a Webby Award (just voted :) )
Warning - like me you might lose several hours of your life looking at the many awesome sites that have been nominated for this year's awards.

At a stag do this weekend and everyone is still in the process of crawling out of bed before a planned game of ultimate.

I'm writing out student feedback for their presentations last week.

A great week ends during which I listened to 36 'company' presentations during which they had to present the 'product' they're been working on for 11 weeks which had to involve code and mathematics.

Great fun. I'm going to sort out everyone's mark now and email feedback and then maybe write a blog post about the whole thing...

Just back from a great bit of fun. We played a staff versus students game of soccer.

The students completely outplayed us and won something like 6-0 (maybe more).

Personal highlight was getting smashed to the ground by +Matt Jones (and kindly helped back up) after I tried to kick him a bunch of times (much easier then getting the ball from him... kids are too damn fast nowadays).

Great fun.

I just got this email from +figshare. 

Academia is broken. Discuss.

figshare founder Mark Hahnel will be taking part in an AMA (Ask me Anything) on the r/science sub-reddit of reddit.com today, Wednesday the 9th April at 6pm BST / 1pm EST.

If you are unfamiliar with the format, an AMA is popular way to ask those of note questions you wouldn’t normally get the chance to ask. Mark’s AMA does have a topic, which is

Academia is broken. Discuss.

There are very few, if any discoveries each year in academia that come about without building on the concepts and ideas that have been previously published in academic journals. This is the natural progression of research. However, this is often limited to building on top of conclusions or ideas, as opposed to conducting the actual research itself. Current dissemination of research is largely based on making.pdf... more »

Interesting discussion of how academics spend their time. The average academic spends about 60 hours a week working, 57% of this time is spent working alone, and only 3% is spend on primary research, 2.2% on manuscript writing, 1.8% reading the literature, and 1.4% spent on reviews. Most research actually seems to happen in meetings, but from the article it is hard to dissect the 17% of time spent in meetings into those that are research inducing and those that are administrative. Overall, a larger fraction of weekend time is spent on research than weekday time; hence it seems like the university gets in the way of a natural urge to do research rather than foster it.

Here are some photos that +Paul Harper took during a quick 30 minute outreach session we just ran at the end of a revision day for high schoolers.

We used 10 sided dice to get the students to estimate pi using Monte Carlo Simulation. In class using everyone's data our estimate was 3.16 :)

I then used +Sage Mathematical Software System to show them that even with 10000 'points' we don't get a great estimate of pi and finished by showing them Ramanujan's formula that +Richard Green
 wrote a nice post about on pi day: http://goo.gl/h5knNI

This has been the busiest academic year of my young career. It comes to an end on Friday (well almost: I'll still have some marking to do) and I might write a reflective blog about it...

The last week is kind of a nice way for it to end with my calendar being blocked out by 20 student presentations that I'm really looking forward to watching.

Yesterday I did a bunch of stuff I needed to do and so am 'relaxing' today by just writing some code to carry out preliminary work for a grant proposal. It's nice to just be able to do research for a day.

Instead of doing somethings I need to do I've updated my site with a section for students I've worked with on research projects. This is nice for me to keep a record, for future students to see the kind of thy can do, but also to give the students in particular some web presence...

(If you're reading this and think you should be on the list, it's in no way an exhaustive list right now... I'll be adding to the database when I have time.)

+James Campbell will be doing some +Sage Mathematical Software System development this summer working to put some #gametheory  stuff in there.

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...

Good: A handful of students took me up on my offer to stay longer after the lecture and had a great session looking at extensive form games. (This wasn't just good: it was great to chat with engaged and curious students)

Bad: Possibly missed a deadline to submit a HEA case study (as long as their deadline wasn't 1700 it's ok) and also missed a meeting with another student who apparently waited outside my office for 30 minutes... Woops... (Not terribly concerned about the first but sad about the second...)
