1. Keith Devlin has some interesting thoughts on the use of video games to facilitate math learning. In particular why we should be wary of "Benny's Rules". He also has an interesting response to "Math Wars" that I linked to earlier.

2. Empirical Zeal tries to explain the visually fascinating phenomenon of "gravity defying chain of metal beads". This effect is very well-known in my field of polymer rheology and there are nice YouTube videos highlighting some of these features here, here and here.

3. Happy Birthday from SpikedMath
