**The Blog**

As the tagline suggests, Mathwoods is a blog composed of lessons, puzzles and reflections relating to high-school level math. I created the blog as a way to express the curiosity and joy I experience doing mathematics. One of my greatest pleasures is to feel, if I’m lucky, that “aha moment” after obsessively thinking about a problem and coming up with a solution, or, failing that, then at least deepening my understanding of the problem itself. I like these aha moments. A lot.

Mathwoods is intended for anyone who has an amateur interest in mathematics and appreciates explanations expressed in a clear, jargon-free way. Whether you are a student struggling with a particular topic or an enthusiast looking for an escape from your day-job, I hope Mathwoods can help!
