Dynamical systems are mathematical models used to describe the time-dependent position of a point’s position in ambient space. For example, a dynamical system could be used to describe the movement of a swinging pendulum. The way the pendulum moves is based on the laws of physics, but trajectory, velocity, acceleration, etc changes over time. Over at the University of Liverpool is a series of visualizations by mathematicians around the world that shows such dynamical systems.

How Much We Eat vs. How Much We Need
On average, we use less energy as we age, and so we should eat less. We don’t always adjust soon enough though.
Working on Tips, by State
What percentage of a waiter and waitress’s income comes from tips and what comes from salary? The calculation isn’t straightforward but we can try.
Game of Distraction
They say a watched pot never boils. So here’s a game where you try to make the pot boiling by looking somewhere else.
