Although it was not a surprise to me that outstanding mathematicians receive awards for their work, it was news to me that there is similar recognition for teaching and explaining mathematics.

My article highlights only three of the honourees. It was also a privilege to interview a staff member of the AMS (American Mathematical Society) for further insight into the importance of these awards.

As always, I also publicize my article in my Blog of Writing. “Awards at the Joint Mathematics Convention on Jan. 5, 2012” includes a new writing tip.

    1. Two key facts:
      (1) I get a lot of pure spam comments, but I set my site’s option that I have to approve/delete each before it shows.
      I did reset a couple of posts to refuse all comments…and apologized in the final comment for that post. That’s because they had so incredibly many.

      (2) I figure some of the comments I approve are actually self-serving backlinks, rather than from approving admirers. But as long as they don’t mention their product in the comment, I don’t mind if the name is a link to their blog or sales site.

      Good question. Your take-away action would be: check your site to determine whether, and how, you can control comments.
