1. Lots of these sound interesting. I particularly like the sound of —

Logic: On alien logic
Ancient math history

On the other side, I think I’ve had enough on multiplication vs repeated addition to last a lifetime!

2. I vote for the logarithms! :)

3. I’m going to vote for the multiplication / addition via category theory article because I just learned about category theory last summer and I like how it messes with my head.

4. More practically, the “doing real research with high school students” one sounds good too.

5. I’m going to go with Multiplication is not repeated addition and common core assessments because I’m assessment obsessed.

6. I’m going to vote for the multiplication / addition via category theory article because I just learned about category theory last summer and I like how it messes with my head.
+1

7. Doing research with high school students–just because I’m a high school student who’s had a taste of math research and I’m curious what you have to say.
