As the authors proclaim: “Chuckdust is a mathematics magazine. It is not a journal, and it’s not a textbook.” Although authored by a team ofUK-based math educators and mathematics/physics doctoral students,Chalkdust is not narrowly intended as a research or curricular resource. Instead, the magazine (available both online and by subscription)includes short articles, brainteasers, and biographies of famous mathematicians. Visitors can read about how “stopping distances” for UK roads are incorrectly calculated, learn about different etymological systems for naming large numbers, and consider how mathematical equations might be employed to keep tea at a perfect temperature. The site also contains puzzles, interviews, and math humor. While not explicitly intended as a teaching tool, Chalkdust contains activities and tidbits of math trivia that would provide fabulous warm-up and supplemental activities in a mathematics classroom. This will be added to Student Research Resources Subject Tracer™.  Copyright © 2016 Internet Scout Research Group –
