Interesting math column

Steven Strogatz, a Cornell math professor, will be writing a blog for the New York Times about mathematics.  As he puts it:

Crazy as it sounds, over the next several weeks ... I’ll be writing about the elements of mathematics, from pre-school to grad school, for anyone out there who’d like to have a second chance at the subject — but this time from an adult perspective. It’s not intended to be remedial. The goal is to give you a better feeling for what math is all about and why it’s so enthralling to those who get it.

Sounds interesting.  Here's the first installment - From Fish to Infinity.  I look forward to reading the next.
