Our posts are tagged by topic. You can explore these through the “tag cloud” on the right side of the page called “Favorite Munches.”

We often feature math construction projects in a variety of media. Check our posts about balloon polyhedra, Math Craft, and the Yoshimoto cube.

We also keep our eyes open for interesting inroads into arithmetic. Check out this prime factorization sweater, “Number Gossip”, and this post about the Euclidean algorithm.

Finally, we try to highlight a diversity of mathematicians on Math Munch—men and women, young and old, past and present, and of many races and nationalities. Check out our diversity tag, as well as posts about such mathematicians as Scott Kim, Philippa Fawcett, Vi Hart, Jaap Scherphuis, and Alan Turing.

That’s just a sampling. Bon appetit!

What is a binary calculator?

Hi Carson,

A binary calculator is a calculator that operates on numbers represented in base-2, or binary. We usually calculate in base-10, but numbers can be represented in other ways, too. Basically all calculators and computers calculate in binary internally, and they display for our benefit in base-10.

I hope that gives you some places to start with your understanding of binary calculators. Thanks for your comment and for visiting Math Munch!
