How to Study Mathematics For an excellent web site with some great discussion of study skills check out the following site by Martin Greenhow. The site has some occasional comments pertaining to the school Dr. Greenhow teaches out but is non the less a great site that goes into much greater detail that I do here.
At first glance — and even after deep scrutiny — the names on a new memorial to those killed on September 11, 2001, seem randomly arrayed. The names are not arranged alphabetically nor, for the most part, are they presented in labeled groups. But the memorial's layout is anything but random.
Posted by Antonio Cangiano in Essential Math , Suggested Reading on July 17th, 2007 | 68 responses I love books with the ability to inspire readers. Many non-mathematicians consider mathematics as something abstruse and complicated, suitable only for ‘nerds’. Often I highlight the unfounded nature of this prejudice, but nothing is more effective at disproving this stigma than a good book. I was in fact able to quickly change many of my friends’ views on the topic, by just giving them a good book which shows the beauty and fascinating nature of mathematics and science in general.
Pi's first few hundred digits contain ample double consecutive digits (marked yellow), and a few triple consecutive digits (marked green). The presence of six consecutive digits (marked red), dubbed the "Feynman point", in such a small sample is an intriguing anomaly. The Feynman point is a sequence of six 9s that begins at the 762nd decimal place of the decimal representation of π . It is named after physicist Richard Feynman , who once stated during a lecture he would like to memorize the digits of π until that point, so he could recite them and quip "nine nine nine nine nine nine and so on", suggesting, in a tongue-in-cheek manner, that π is rational .
