NMF Weekly: Ask Your Math Friend James

NMF Weekly Puzzle Newsletter
Issue #24, May 2021  ·

This is the final issue of the NMF Weekly Puzzle Newsletter from the National Math Festival for the 2020-2021 school year. Thank you for joining the fun this year! You can find @jamestanton on Twitter this summer, and he'll be back with more puzzles in the future!
In NMF Weekly Issue #24, Ollie wants to know why showing your work is important when doing math. Naturally, this caught the eye of James, who loves to help people understand more about how math works! Maybe you've seen some confusing math problems that have gone viral on social media in recent years, maybe you can remember a math puzzle that was tricky or hard to understand, but communicating clearly is key!
