My square-wheel bike, on permanent display at Macalester College. This construction, believe it or not, earned me an entry in "Ripley's Believe It or Not"; beats standing in a block of ice for three days or growing three-foot long fingernails. This version is our second such vehicle, built in 2004. The first, from 1995, was a little less refined and the ride on the catenary road less smooth. The new version rides very very smoothly.

Problem of the Week  The Macalester Problem of the Week program sends out a weekly math puzzle during the academic year. This project has run continuously since 1968, when it was started by the late J. D. E. Konhauser. The list server is maintained by the Math Forum @ Drexel and you can subscribe by sending a message to majordomo@mathforum.org. The body of the message should say only: SUBSCRIBE MACPOW. Past problems may be viewed at the Problem of the Week Archive.
