What DID we do all day? : Montessori Math: Fitting It All In, Elementary You are going to either love this post or hate this post depending on if you think like me. Just a warning. You'll probably know pretty quickly which category you fall into. I will forgive you if you abandon me part way through and come back tomorrow when I'm speaking your language again.
Chinese Numbers Chinese Numbers The Chinese Number Conversion Perl module used above to convert between Chinese character numbers and Arabic numbers is available for download. A Brief Description of the Chinese Number System TeX TeX (/ˈtɛx/ or /ˈtɛk/, see below) is a typesetting system designed and mostly written by Donald Knuth and released in 1978. Together with the Metafont language for font description and the Computer Modern family of typefaces, TeX was designed with two main goals in mind: to allow anybody to produce high-quality books using a reasonably minimal amount of effort, and to provide a system that would give exactly the same results on all computers, at any point in time. TeX is a popular means by which to typeset complex mathematical formulae; it has been noted as one of the most sophisticated digital typographical systems in the world. TeX is popular in academia, especially in mathematics, computer science, economics, engineering, physics, statistics, and quantitative psychology. It has largely displaced Unix troff, the other favored formatter, in many Unix installations, which use both for different purposes.
There’s one key difference between kids who excel at math and those who don’t — Quartz “I’m just not a math person.” We hear it all the time. And we’ve had enough. Because we believe that the idea of “math people” is the most self-destructive idea in America today. The truth is, you probably are a math person, and by thinking otherwise, you are possibly hamstringing your own career. Worse, you may be helping to perpetuate a pernicious myth that is harming underprivileged children—the myth of inborn genetic math ability. Manual of Style The Manual of Style (often abbreviated MoS or MOS) is a style guide for all Wikipedia articles. This is its main page, covering certain topics (such as punctuation) in full, and presenting the key points of others. Subpages, linked via this page's menu and listed at Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Contents, provide detailed guidance on some topics. The Manual of Style documents Wikipedia's house style.
What DID we do all day? : Montessori Math: Fitting It All In, Primary It has been an exciting week in our homeschool as Kal-El moves out of the Montessori Primary math album and into the Montessori Elementary album. He has finally finished everything in the primary except the division memorization work (which he will do alongside the new elementary work). Me Too, who has just begun his first year as a Montessori Elementary student, is still in the primary album for math. History of Mathematics Home Page Every culture on earth has developed some mathematics. In some cases, this mathematics has spread from one culture to another. Now there is one predominant international mathematics, and this mathematics has quite a history. It has roots in ancient Egypt and Babylonia, then grew rapidly in ancient Greece.
LaTeX LaTeX (/ˈlɑːtɛx/ LAH-tekh or /ˈleɪtɛx/ LAY-tekh styled as LaTeX, and a shortening of Lamport TeX) is a word processor and document markup language. It is distinguished from typical word processors such as Microsoft Office and LibreOffice in that the writer uses plain text as opposed to formatted text, relying on markup tagging conventions to define the general structure of a document (such as article, book, and letter), to stylise text throughout a document (such as bold and italic), and to add citations and cross-referencing. A TeX distribution such as TeXlive or MikTeX is used to produce an output file (such as PDF or DVI) suitable for printing or digital distribution. LaTeX is widely used in academia.[not in citation given] LaTeX can be used as a standalone document preparation system, or as an intermediate format. In the latter role, for example, it is often used as part of a pipeline for translating DocBook and other XML-based formats to PDF.
Troll pi explained @ Things Of Interest Here's the "Troll Pi" or "Pi equals 4" image. Here's the breakdown, as simple as I can make it. All of the following facts are true: Panels one to four describe a sequence of curves. (Here, "curve" is a generic term referring to any continuous line, be it straight or crooked or curved.)Each curve in the sequence has a well-defined length of exactly 4. These facts are also true: Manual of Style (linking) Linking through hyperlinks is an important feature of Wikipedia. Internal links are used to bind the project together into an interconnected whole. Interwiki links bind the project to sister projects such as Wikisource, Wiktionary, and Wikipedia in other languages; and external links bind Wikipedia to the World Wide Web. Appropriate links provide instant pathways to locations within and outside the project that are likely to increase readers' understanding of the topic at hand. When writing or editing an article, it is important to consider not only what to put in the article, but what links to include to help the reader find related information, as well as which other pages should carry links to the article. Care should be taken to avoid both underlinking and overlinking, as described below.
DIY Montessori Fraction Materials Montessori fraction insets are fabulous. They’re also expensive and take up a lot of shelf space. For Montessori homeschools, that’s not very practical. I’ve found DIY Montessori fraction materials that will give children a hands-on experience of fractions at a fraction of the price. (Couldn’t resist saying that!)
