In looking at the best of what Make: Online had to offer in 2010, George Hart’s wonderful “Math Monday” columns immediately sprung to mind. Each week, George does a fantastic job of covering the wonders of mathematics through a series of crafty projects. It’s math and science meets arts, crafts, and various forms of making (from papercraft to wood- and metalworking, to playing with your food). Look for more cool “Math Monday” columns in 2011.

Here are a few of our faves:
