I have three sizes of flag images for anyone who wants to use them as wallpaper. At the moment, none of these is tilted, like the Fourth of July comic because that requires a little more precision to line up seemlessly if your computer tiles the images. I welcome suggestions other than "Make one Really Big image."
Mike from Spiked Math has issued his own Pi Manifesto in response to other mathematicians who would wish to dispose of of pi in favor the nonsensical tau. (Go ahead look it up. "Nonsensical", I mean. You really don't need to look up tau.)
One simple reason the switch would never work for me: my students don't even use radians yet. And I, along with my colleagues, spend hours before every Mathematics Regents exam not only resetting calculators and clearing their memories, but also switching them to degree mode because the default is radians, and the student might fail to recognize that. And they shouldn't lose points because of a quirk of technology.
Mr. Burke is a high school math teacher in New York as well as a part-time writer, and a fan of science-fiction/fantasy books and films.
He started making his own math webcomic totally by accident as a way of amusing his students and trying to make them think just a little bit more.
