The BookDid you know that that there are over 50 people working on Playing With Math: Stories from Math Circles, Homeschoolers, and Passionate Teachers?! We are authors, puzzle & game-makers, artists, and editors. The most recent additions to the group are mathematical artists who agreed to share a piece of their work - the opening page of each section now features an amazing, thought-provoking work of art.
- The Math Circle Section piece comes from Paul Salomon (already in our group for his wonderful imbalance puzzles). Here's more: lostinrecursion.wordpress.com/art/stars-of-the-minds-sky

The book is now ready to go to page layout. What a thrill! I am so proud of all of us.
