There is no escape...believe it or not. Mathematics is everywhere.

My first thought is to dump a whole math book into it to see how "important" each concept really is
Wordle is one of the most beautiful ways to visualize frequency distributions. You can dump a bunch of numbers and it will find the mode for you. It can also handle multimodal distributions.
My kid is using it in creative writing projects to check if she's been abusing/overusing any words.
Of course, for me it's always just an elegant way to visualize statistics. Stick Obama and McCain speeches into it, for example, to see Interesting Things (TM) and then talk about math of the said interesting things.

Thanks Maria for sharing this wonderful idea. My students have to prepare a Math project on analysing text. They have to find which word has maximum frequency , etc. I will try it out.
I do use wordle, but have been thinking about using it in Geometry... Put all of the Theorems from a chapter and see what it looks like - Have the students then deconstruct back into the Theorems... Should give them some insight into the construct.
