In NMF Weekly Issue #9, Henry asks what James' favorite math puzzle is! James shares a story about growing up in Adelaide, Australia in an old Victorian house with decorated ceilings. When he had trouble sleeping, he'd come up with puzzles to solve based on the pattern of his bedroom ceiling! Can you solve his mathy maze?
In NMF Weekly Issue #10, Mary has discovered a viral video that a grown-up James made about trying to solve the mystery of folding fitted bedsheets properly. Recognizing that kids might not enjoy laundry, James proposes some perplexing paper puzzles, and introduces the Fold and Cut Theorem!
