P.R.Halmos, How to Write MathematicsAMS, 1973 Also, some pages are organized into series while others, especially the older ones, are accessible individually. Throughout the discussions at this site I refer to various titles I love and find useful enough to have them in my own library.

Lucia de B. is innocent This internet site has been created by a group of individuals who form the “Committee for Lucia”. None of its members are related to Lucia, nor are they from her circle of friends. They are merely individuals driven by the certainty that Lucia is the victim of a gross miscarriage of justice. # News: Desmos Grapher Untitled Graph Create AccountorSign In Important changes to our Terms of Service!

Can Math Make a Better Marathon? Less than two miles from the finish of last month’s Chicago Marathon, with the race finally narrowed to a neck-and-neck duel between two Kenyan runners, the NBC television commentators began placing their bets. It wasn’t a hard call. Abel Kirui, who hadn’t won a marathon since 2011, was visibly struggling, repeatedly falling behind and then clawing his way back. At one point, grimacing, he snatched a cup of water from a volunteer and dumped it over his head.

OCSD Interactive Games Design Your Own Games Pre-Made Games Matching Game Directions- In this game you can match up words. You have two columns to work in . Type in your words in the first column and the matching words in the second column. advice John Baez March 25, 2007 I have reached the stage where young mathematicians and physicists sometimes ask me for advice. Here is my advice. Most of it applies to grad students and postdocs in any branch of science who seek an academic career involving research. IB Maths Resources from British International School Phuket Imagining the 4th Dimension Imagining extra dimensions is a fantastic ToK topic – it is something which seems counter-intuitively false, something which we have no empirical evidence to support, and yet it is something which seems to fit the latest mathematical models on string theory (which requires 11 dimensions). Mathematical models have consistently been shown to be accurate in describing reality, but when they predict a reality that is outside our realm of experience then what should we believe? Our senses? Our intuition? Or the mathematical models?

Catenary A hanging chain with short links forms a catenary. Freely-hanging transmission lines also form catenaries. The silk on a spider's web forming multiple elastic catenaries. Math: Human Discovery or Human Invention? So just what, in essence, is this thing called math? In developing these numbers and systems of numbers, did we discover the hidden coding of the universe? Is mathematics, in the words of Galileo, the language of God? Hammack Home This book is an introduction to the standard methods of proving mathematical theorems. It has been approved by the American Institute of Mathematics' Open Textbook Initiative. Also see the Mathematical Association of America Math DL review (of the 1st edition), and the Amazon reviews. The second edition is identical to the first edition, except some mistakes have been corrected, new exercises have been added, and Chapter 13 has been extended. (The Cantor-Bernstein-Schröeder theorem has been added.) The two editions can be used interchangeably, except for the last few pages of Chapter 13.
