The Carnival of Mathematics #52 is up and running at The Number Warrior, with tidbits about perfect numbers and Mersenne primes as well as links to a variety of interesting blog posts. Even if you aren’t a particularly “mathy” person, I think you will enjoy these:

- The federal budget, rescaled
- The Pattern Does Not Hold
- What’s the Chance That the Patient Has the Disease?

Check out the rest of the articles at Carnival of Mathematics #52.

And if you didn’t catch it last week, Math Teachers at Play #6 was short but fun at I Want to Teach Forever. Next week’s ** Math Teachers at Play** carnival will be hosted by Misty at Homeschool Bytes. If you blog about math on the K-12 level, be sure to send in your entry soon!
