Announcing... the Mathematics and Multimedia Carnival 21!

I am pleased to announce that the 21st edition of the Mathematics and Multimedia Carnival will be hosted here on Math Concepts Explained in March!

For those who are new to blog carnivals (like myself!), Guillermo has put together a nice summary on his website that explains what is a blog carnival.  Quite simply, it is just a collection of related blogs or websites that are submitted by readers and then have been summarized and listed into a single blog entry by the carnival host.  A carnival may be compared to a magazine, in that various writers submit their articles to be published, and then the magazine editor reviews all the entries and puts them together into a final, polished magazine.

As I mentioned, I have never hosted a carnival, nor have I participated in one, so I admit to being very unfamiliar with the process surrounding this.  However, I am looking forward to it as an opportunity to make some new friends and learn some new things.  So, please bear with me as I figure this out as I go!

With that, look for an official call for entries in the coming days.  I will explain the submission process at that time.  :)

In the meantime, I am happy to direct you to Guillermo's website GeoGebra Applet Central, where he is hosting the 20th edition of the Mathematics and Multimedia Carnival later in February.
