For the past several months, I've been working on a New Year's surprise for Grey Matters readers. It's almost done, and will be revealed on January 1st, 2011 (Saturday), and Sunday's post will focus on all the details.
To keep you going until then, I'm going to provide you with a few fun treats for the new year.
Since New Year's Day is coming up, you're probably working on your resolutions. Is it possible to make resolutions that have a better chance of being kept? Of course! Over at Gawker, check out How to Make Every New Year's Resolution Stick for Good. Richard Wiseman, over at his 59 Seconds blog, also has a great article called Achieve your New Year’s Resolutions!.
Don't forget to include improving your memory or math skills among your resolutions.
Enough of the serious stuff! We'll turn to some math, but nothing serious, of course. Maybe just some math doodling will fit the bill here:
Like that? The same author has several other math doodling videos you might enjoy:

Sick Number Games
Have a Happy New Year!
