Puzzles. 2013 Puzzle - Activities - 'Be creative and find how many ways you can put together 2,0,1 & 4 to make different numbers.' 2014 is the year and this brings a new challenge. This activity is the 2014 puzzle. Using ALL the digits in the year 2014 once and only once (you may not use any other numbers except 2, 0, 1, and 4) write down as many different mathematical expressions that give results for the numbers 1 to 100.

You should learn many different tricks along the way to help you and you may even surprise yourself how creative you can be to find solutions to ‘difficult’ numbers. Resources Student Grid can be printed off. Teachers may wish to display this Classroom Poster and get classes to collate their results. The manipulative below may help as a stimulus to start this activity. Rules Use ALL the digits in the year 2014 (you may not use any other numbers except 2, 0, 1, and 4) to write mathematical expressions that give results for the numbers 1 to 100.

2013 Mathematics Puzzle Rules. Welcome to the Math Forum Year Game for 2014! For many years mathematicians, scientists, engineers and others interested in mathematics have played "year games" via e-mail and in newsgroups. We don't always know whether it is possible to write expressions for all the numbers from 1 to 100 using only the digits in the current year, but it is fun to try to see how many you can find. This year may prove to be a challenge. As with many games, the rules for the Year Game can vary slightly. Our rules: use the digits in the year 2014 and the operations +, -, x, ÷, ^ (raised to a power), sqrt (square root), and !

Teachers may print out worksheets for students to record their findings, or may print sheets of manipulatives for students to use. Student solutions may be submitted starting January 1, 2014, using the Web form linked on the side menu. You can use our Web form to enter as many different solutions as you find; however, you must complete the entire form for each submission. MathSphere Maths Puzzles. MathSphere Ltd P.O.

Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy. Galileo Galilei. 1. Brief Biography Galileo was born on February 15, 1564 in Pisa. By the time he died on January 8, 1642 (but see problems with the date, Machamer 1998, pp. 24–5) he was as famous as any person in Europe. Moreover, when he was born there was no such thing as ‘science’, yet by the time he died science was well on its way to becoming a discipline and its concepts and method a whole philosophical system. Galileo and his family moved to Florence in 1572.

In 1592 he was appointed, at a much higher salary, to the position of mathematician at the University of Padua. It was during his Paduan period that Galileo worked out much of his mechanics and began his work with the telescope. In 1612 Galileo published a Discourse on Floating Bodies, and in 1613, Letters on the Sunspots. In 1613–4 Galileo entered into discussions of Copernicanism through his student Benedetto Castelli, and wrote a Letter to Castelli. In 1634, while Galileo was under house arrest, his daughter, Maria Celeste died. 2. 3.
