Since May 6, 1997You are visitor number E66B7E in base 20 Raymond Smullyan, a Mathematician, Philosopher and author of several outstanding books of logical puzzles, tells, in one of his books, a revealing story. A friend invited him for dinner. He told Smullyan that his teenage son was crazy about Smullyan's books and could not wait to meet him. Having told this story, would it be wise to announce up front what this site is about? |Contact||Front page||Index||Store|

Touch Mathematics Physics Flash Animations We have been increasingly using Flash animations for illustrating Physics content. This page provides access to those animations which may be of general interest. The animations will appear in a separate window. The animations are sorted by category, and the file size of each animation is included in the listing. In addition, I have prepared a small tutorial in using Flash to do Physics animations. LInks to versions of these animations in other languages, other links, and license information appear towards the bottom of this page. The Animations There are 99 animations listed below. Other Languages and Links These animations have been translated into Catalan, Spanish and Basque: En aquest enllaç podeu trobar la versió al català de les animacions Flash de Física. Many animations have been translated into Greek by Vangelis Koltsakis. Most animations have been translated into Hungarian by Sandor Nagy, Eötvös Loránd University.

Vi Hart: Math Doodling Remember that video about doodling dragons and fractals and stuff? I finally finished part 2! Here is a magnet link so you can dowload it via torrent. Here it is on YouTube: You can tell I worked on it for a long time over many interruptions (travelling and other stuff), because in order to keep myself from hating what was supposed to be a quick easy part 2, I had to amuse myself with snakes. Here was part 1, via Torrent or YouTube. Science Fair Central: Students should start a shopping list as soon as they have chosen a topic. Your display can reflect your personality: Is every inch of my locker or bedroom covered with magazine clippings, posters, stickers, and sticky notes? Or am I more of a minimalist? What’s my idea of a good time: scrapbooking or skateboarding?

Finding Unity in the Math Wars I usually avoid current events, but recent skirmishes in the math world prompted me to chime in. To recap, there’ve been heated discussions about math education and the role of online resources like Khan Academy. As fun as a good math showdown may appear, there’s a bigger threat: Apathy. And Justin Bieber. Educators, online or not, don’t compete with each other. Entertainment is great; I love Starcraft. What do we need? I could be walking into a knife fight with an ice cream cone, but I’d like to approach each side with empathy and offer specific suggestions to bridge the gap. The Big Misunderstanding Superheroes need a misunderstanding before working together. Bad Teacher < Online Learning < Good teacher The problem is in considering each part separately. Is Khan Academy (free, friendly, always available) better than a mean, uninformed, or absent teacher? But, really, the ultimate solution is Online learning + Good Teachers. Why Do I Care? I love learning. I was a good student. Finals came.
