Online texts Professor Jim Herod and I have written Multivariable Calculus ,a book which we and a few others have used here at Georgia Tech for two years. We have also proposed that this be the first calculus course in the curriculum here, but that is another story.... Although it is still in print, Calculus,by Gilbert Strang is made available through MIT's OpenCourseWare electronic publishing initiative. Here is one that has also been used here at Georgia Tech. Linear Methods of Applied Mathematics, by Evans Harrell and James Herod. Yet another one produced at Georgia Tech is Linear Algebra, Infinite Dimensions, and Maple, by James Herod.

How to Become a Pure Mathematician (or Statistician) The Normal Distribution Loading [MathJax]/jax/output/HTML-CSS/fonts/TeX/AMS/Regular/Main.js \newcommand{\R}{\mathbb{R}}\newcommand{\N}{\mathbb{N}}\newcommand{\P}{\mathbb{P}}\newcommand{\E}{\mathbb{E}}\newcommand{\var}{\text{var}}\newcommand{\sd}{\text{sd}}\newcommand{\skew}{\text{skew}}\newcommand{\kurt}{\text{kurt}} The normal distribution holds an honored role in probability and statistics, mostly because of the central limit theorem, one of the fundamental theorems that forms a bridge between the two subjects. In addition, as we will see, the normal distribution has many nice mathematical properties. The normal distribution is also called the Gaussian distribution The Standard Normal Distribution A random variable Z has the standard normal distribution if it has the probability density function \phi given by \phi(z) = \frac{1}{\sqrt{2 \, \pi}} e^{-\frac{1}{2} z^2}, \quad z \in \R \phi is a probability density function. The standard normal density function \phi satisfies the following properties: Moments The The general

Estudia matemáticas con Google Chrome Desde hace algunos meses, el buscador de Google nos ofrece la posibilidad de realizar representaciones gráficas de funciones matemáticas, incluso realizando gráficas tridimensionales. Gracias a este tipo de funcionalidades y a que, con cada vez mayor frecuencia, recurrimos a la red para buscar información de apoyo y consultar fuentes bibliográficas, no nos resulta raro encontrar en una mesa de estudio un ordenador. Al igual que podemos complementar las funciones de nuestro navegador, por ejemplo, para hacerlo más social y hacernos más fácil conectar con nuestros amigos a través de Twitter o Facebook, también podemos personalizar nuestro navegador y convertirlo en una potente herramienta de estudio que nos ayude a preparar los exámenes finales. Conversion Calculator es una extensión que encuentro muy útil tanto para estudiar matemáticas o física como para entender mejor la información que podemos leer en la prensa o en blogs angloparlantes.

The Narrow Road » If We Taught English the Way We Teach Math Imagine that your only contact with “English” as a subject was through classes in school. Suppose that those classes, from elementary school right through to high school, amounted to nothing more than reading dictionaries, getting drilled in spelling and formal grammatical construction, and memorizing vast vocabulary lists — you never read a novel, nor a poem; never had contact with anything beyond the pedantic complexity of English spelling and formal grammar, and precise definitions for an endless array of words. You would probably hate the subject.You might come to wonder what the point of learning English was. In response perhaps the teachers and education system might decide that, to help make English relevant to students, they need to introduce more “Applied English”. This means teaching English students with examples from “real life” (for varying degrees of “real”) where English skills are important, like how to read a contract and locate the superfluous comma.

Why Math Works Most of us take it for granted that math works—that scientists can devise formulas to describe subatomic events or that engineers can calculate paths for space­craft. We accept the view, initially espoused by Galileo, that mathematics is the language of science and expect that its grammar explains experimental results and even predicts novel phenomena. The power of mathematics, though, is nothing short of astonishing. Consider, for example, Scottish physicist James Clerk Maxwell’s famed equations: not only do these four expressions summarize all that was known of electromagnetism in the 1860s, they also anticipated the existence of radio waves two decades before German physicist Heinrich Hertz detected them. As a working theoretical astrophysicist, I encounter the seemingly “unreasonable effectiveness of math­ematics,” as Nobel laureate physicist Eugene Wigner called it in 1960, in every step of my job.
