Final week I solicited your suggestions by way of a fast survey. As we speak I’m sharing the aggregated, non-identifiable data with you. It ought to give us a greater image of this neighborhood.

(Observe: I’m copy-pasting charts from Google Types, however pie charts are clearly a poor selection for visualization usually. I’d get round to manually redo the photographs by importing the uncooked information in a Jupyter pocket book.)

  5. (5.4%) Evaluation

Q: How glad are you with the next facets of Math Weblog’s posts?

Math Blog Satisfaction Ratings

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?

Prime 5:

  1. (64.3%) E book evaluations
  2. (64.3%) Overviews of mathematical ideas
  3. (51.8%) Math historical past
  4. (44.6%) Tutorials
  5. (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?

Mathematical level

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.
