Hey, it's a definite phenomenon. Pokemon Go, that is. So I did some quick analysis of the points required to level up. It turns out that those points follow an exponential pattern but along the way have some quadratic and linear sections. So if you are looking for some data to analyze that might be of interest to students take a look here.

Hey, if you want to bring some geometry into Pokemon Go, then try this property of circles. This particular property actually doesn't show up in Ontario curriculum anymore but it still might be fun for just about any class.

This is a new math worksheet builder from @altekrusejason. You may or may not have strong opinions about "worksheets" but one thing that has always been true is that creating a math worksheet with graphs and equations wasn't always easy. It looks like this might be the answer for that. Watch the video below to get a small sense of what you can do. Thanks to @SWOTeacher for this one

I do love quadratic based images like this one from @RobbieMaddison jumping the Corinth Chasm. I have more from the quadratic realm here if you are interested.
