The pie chart was an abomination, so high 5 beneath. 🙂

- (5.4%) Evaluation
Q: How glad are you with the next facets of Math Weblog’s posts?
The take residence lesson is that we should always enhance frequency, and a bit selection. (And maybe introduce some extra elementary math content material as nicely.)
Q: What sort of content material would you wish to see extra of?
- (64.3%) E book evaluations

- (51.8%) Math historical past
- (44.6%) Tutorials
- (42.9%) Math information
(The query allowed a number of decisions.)
Q: What degree of arithmetic are you principally serious about studying about on Math Weblog?
A number of the questions had been open and tougher to summarize, however I really feel this survey offered me with ample suggestions. I thank everybody of you who participated in it.
I’d additionally wish to thank individuals who expressed a need to contribute to the location as authors. I’ll attain out to every of you individually very quickly. Thanks.
