Math Teachers at Play #41

quarantunoWillkommen! Welcome to the Math Teachers at Play blog carnival! Whether you are a teacher, homeschooler, parent, or a math enthusiast interested in general discussions about mathematics, there is a little bit of something for everyone here.

Some of these links came as direct submissions by bloggers, and the others came from my Google Reader.

To start, here are some fun facts about the number 41:

- Starting with 41, if you add 2, then 4, then 6, then 8, etc... you would get a string of 40 prime numbers in a row!

-  41 is also a Centered Square Number, which means that it is the sum of two consecutive squares -- 42 and 52, in this case. Can you figure out how this picture relates to the Center Square Numbers, and use the picture to explain why all Center Square Numbers are 1 (mod 4)?
