Hergert Numbers now available in polos!

Tonight we did a late Christmas gift exchange with Mrs. Hergertnumbers family and I received a Hergert Numbers polo shirt (from the Mrs. of course)! This is like Hergert Numbers formal wear. I don't know if this shirt is quite wacky enough for Wacky Shirt Wednesday, but it's much appreciated! I now have Hergert Numbers apparel for any occasion.

It's too small to read in this picture, but that red line on the chest is the Hergert Numbers URL. Did you notice the Hergert Numbers bobblehead in the background?

Merry Christmas and Spread the Word!

Hergert Numbers in Lecture Notes!

This fall, the Hergert Numbers movement took a giant leap forward. The definition has now been included in the lecture notes posted online by Professor Steve Kifowit of Prairie State College for his Calculus class. Steve's definition is a little more formally worded than the t-shirts, but he checked with me to be sure it captures the spirit and intent of the Hergert number concept.

Now, all we need is for Steve to develop his notes into a full-fledged Calculus textbook and we'll be on our way!

Hergert Numbers Birthday Cake!

Happy Birthday to me!

Tonight, I celebrated my birthday with my family in the best way I know how - a Hergert Numbers birthday cake. It was delicious! I really enjoyed the "ert" portion of the cake. Tomorrow night, I may have to go for some "Herg".

In case you're wondering what birthday this is, just find the Hergert Number for f(x)=x^3-129x^2+12x-14

I also wore my Hergert Numbers baseball cap all day long at RVC since that was an early birthday present.

Thanks to all who have supported the Hergert Numbers movement this year. Send me your pictures!
