Hergert Numbers traveled to New York City last week with my sister-in-law who was across the river in New Jersey for a work training trip. She & her co-workers spent a night on the town in NYC seeing as many sights as they could. Here's the Manhattan skyline in the background. For more pictures from her trip, follow the Hergert Numbers on Twitter (@HergertNumbers) or like Hergert Numbers on Facebook.
Thanks Becca for bringing your shirt along and getting such awesome photos!

I've been really bad about updating the webpage this summer, but we've had some exciting things happening with Hergert Numbers.
Above, we have College of DuPage student Joel Swanson wearing his HN shirt in India! That's the second one to make it to Asia (Rachel Slabaugh took hers to China a few years ago). Thanks to Joel for sharing the photo.
Also, I got word that popular Calculus textbook author Ron Larson added a link to HergertNumbers.org to his textbook's website. You can find the link by choosing Chapter 3 and Section 4 from the drop down menus, then clicking the "videos" drop down menu and you'll see it in the list. That's huge!! I am eternally grateful to Professor Larson for the support.
The shirts have been flying off the shelves this year and you don't have to go halfway around the world to get an interesting pic. Please keep sending/posting your photos!!

Ewing paper (1938)
Bruckner paper (1962)
Walker paper (1956)
Mulcrone paper (1968)
Since I'll be talking about inflection points and Hergert numbers just happen to be candidates for inflection points, there's a high probability that Hergert numbers will be mentioned at some point in the afternoon.

On a related note, a former student of mine was recently visiting his high school math teacher and the teacher, who I don't believe I've ever met, had heard of Hergert Numbers. We're on our way!
Keep the pictures coming!
