There were lots of cool things in over the past week, but my favorite was when students realized the connection between these two equations using exploding dots! The light in their eyes was awesome!

Student realizes that the code for 273 in an exploding dots 10 —> 1 machine is 273. Looks up. Jaw drops. Says to me: “You made me think.” Exploding Dots for the win. Thanks .

Can the average of two distinct powers of two ever itself be a power of two? Can the average of two distinct powers of three ever itself be a power of three? Can the average of two distinct powers of any number N itself be a power of N?

6 in base two is 110 and interpreting 110 in bases 3,4,5,6,... gives 12, 20, 30, 42,..., and 6 is a factor of two-thirds of these values. Is there a number N>1 that is a factor of a higher percentage of terms when interpreting the base-2 representation of N in bases 3,4,5,6...?
