Since I prepared a couple of images for my recently published Decoded Science article, "Introducing the Factorial, the Exclamation Mark of Math", I need to lay claim to the copyright by publishing them here first.
"N Factorial from 1 to 5 or 10" image by Mike DeHaan
This first picture is an Excel spreadsheet graph of the first five factorials. Note how the "n!" column inflates very, very quickly.

It's difficult to insert the large "Choose" brackets, or even a division line, into an online article about mathematics.

Further Publicity for my Math Factorial Article

I continue to follow my tradition of publicizing my articles in DeHaan Services ("Factorials Add the Exclamation Point to Math") and in my Xanga blog ("Math's Exclamation Point, the Factorial").

A Writing Tip from the Factorial Article

Usually I compose my writing tip after completing the article.

For the moment, I'm going to experiment with something that I learned for my previous Decoded Science article, "Introducing Math Symbols for Union and Intersection".

A Windows PC, in my case running Vista, has a program called "Character Map".

Can I insert a capital Gamma between these brackets, (G), using the Character Map? No, Weebly translated it into an upper-case 'G'.

However, I succeeded here (Γ) by copy-and-pasting from a Wordpress editor, using the "insert custom character" tool.

I might get away with it using a different drop-down module.

The writing tip is to use a variety of tools and platforms to accomplish your writing goal.
This is a custom HTML form. Let's see whether I can paste the Gamma here: (Γ). Yes, but only by copying from a Wordpress article as in the previous paragraph.

    Flexible Sidebar

    Weebly's "Blog Author" widget from the Blog Sidebar's Elements menu provides a lot of flexibility. You can change both the title and the text.

    It has all the capabilities for text editing that you find in most Weebly text widgets.

    At this point, I don't see a way to code any HTML in this widget.

    The "Picture" does what you expect: it displays an image of your choice. I just added my home-made picture of "Copyright DeHaan Services 2013" as the top element in this sidebar on Jan. 22, 2013.

    The "Search Box" is a "Pro" feature; if you're paying for Weebly hosting, it may be worthwhile.

    The other widgets are pre-programmed to do what they say.
