Sequence Photos: Call for entries

What does a sequence mean to you?

Professor Bear is pleased to announce a new fortnightly math magazine, coming out soon via periodical.co. The topic for the first issue is: Sequences.

We’d love to publish your sequence photo in our inaugural issue.

A sequence is an ordered list of terms. For some people, what matters in a sequence is the pattern followed by its terms, or whether there is a pattern:

1, 2, 3, 4, …
0, 1, 0, 2, 0, 3, …
1/2, 1/3, 1/4, …
sunny, cloudy, rainy, sunny, partially cloudy, …
1/2, 1/4, 1/8, …

For some people, what matters is the “destination” or whether there is a destination:

3, 3.1, 3.14, 3.141, 3.1415, 3.14159, …
-1, 1, -1, 1, -1, 1, …
duck, duck, goose
… -2, 0, 2, 4, ….

If you have an interesting photo of a sequence, and would like it included in our magazine, please send it to:

If your photo is chosen, you’ll have a photographer byline. Creativity encouraged! How about a sequence of sequins?
