New Logo/Header for mathsisfun.comI have a new logo/header for the Math is Fun website: http://www.mathsisfun.com/ "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #2 20121022 14:19:37
Re: New Logo/Header for mathsisfun.comHi MIF; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #3 20121022 14:20:11
Re: New Logo/Header for mathsisfun.comSo far, I think it's a little bit of an improvement. Honestly, I never quite understood the boy/girl thing myself, I went more with the assumption that it was like showing an example of them enjoying math. Anyway, as for the new one, it seems a little more...bland maybe, but I personally feel it's better suiting. As for any suggestions, maybe suggest showing more math like you did on the old one. For instance, you name your site math is fun, so maybe try to put something showing something fun in math, though obviously not being too involved. Life isn’t a simple Math: there are always other variables. [unknown] But Nature flies from the infinite, for the infinite is unending or imperfect, and Nature ever seeks an end.

Re: New Logo/Header for mathsisfun.comYes, a little bare. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #5 20121022 14:43:38

Re: New Logo/Header for mathsisfun.comHmm, call me crazy, but I don't think that might be such a bad idea. I mean, adding in the faces of all the administrators could also lead more people into the forum, even recognize them (who have never been to the forum before). I don't know if this is the best way explaining this, but it could help with comfortableness. Though, it is honestly a little bit of a shot too, I'm only saying it might be a good idea, I'm honestly not the most sure. I'm still more thinking something showing math being fun and interesting is better though... Life isn’t a simple Math: there are always other variables.

Re: New Logo/Header for mathsisfun.comHi MIF and Calligar;
That will look good. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #8 20121022 15:26:54
Re: New Logo/Header for mathsisfun.comI know you were, but I honestly see some potential in it, even if you don't. Life isn’t a simple Math: there are always other variables.

Re: New Logo/Header for mathsisfun.comHere are some symbols you could add: The limit operator is just an excuse for doing something you know you can't. “It's the subject that nobody knows anything about that we can all talk about!” ― Richard Feynman “Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most.” ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Crime and Punishment #12 20121023 15:23:32
Re: New Logo/Header for mathsisfun.comSince everyone seems to go for symbols, why not just use that idea? Maybe make a poll or something on what symbols to use in header?

Re: New Logo/Header for mathsisfun.comBut except for the kids there was symbols there before or does my memory fail me. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: New Logo/Header for mathsisfun.comYes there were. They were some operaion signs (i.e. plus, minus etc.) which MIF is trying to refrain from using for some reason...

Re: New Logo/Header for mathsisfun.comSigma was always my favorite, so I vote for putting that up there. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: New Logo/Header for mathsisfun.comBig Sigma, I suppose?

Re: New Logo/Header for mathsisfun.comHmm, I wish I could help, but I'm not too good at ideas like this, anything more math related would be fine. As for shapes, I've always liked higher dimensions (4d +), specifically the pentachoron (for those who don't know what it is, just look at my picture) is my favorite, because it's literally the simplest shape beyond the 3'rd dimension. For symbols, I tend to like infinity, but it isn't as often used, simply (and if I recall correctly, you had that on the site before hand). A puzzle, I can't think of anything off the top of my head that's simple enough to put into a header, maybe mazes (I like them, but I don't personally think it's the best idea for this...)? A game board, um... chess is usually known for being a thinking game. Sorry, just throwing out ideas to possibly help... Life isn’t a simple Math: there are always other variables.

Re: New Logo/Header for mathsisfun.comYou could have the Hilbert curve going all the way behind everything, like in the background.

Re: New Logo/Header for mathsisfun.comGreat ideas guys ... I will try some of them and see how they look. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman
