Teaching Math on an iPad In my High school, one of the last departments to realise a use for iPads was the Math department.

Their thinking was that Math had to be hand written and there was no digital functionality beyond a calculator that suited the learning of Mathematical problem solving. Scalars and Vectors Physics is a mathematical science. The underlying concepts and principles have a mathematical basis. Throughout the course of our study of physics, we will encounter a variety of concepts that have a mathematical basis associated with them. While our emphasis will often be upon the conceptual nature of physics, we will give considerable and persistent attention to its mathematical aspect. The motion of objects can be described by words.

Centuries ago, when Galileo was promoting the Copernican model in which the Earth spun on its axis and traveled around the Sun, there was great opposition from those who trusted their common sense: "How could the Earth be moving? I don't feel it moving!

17 Measurement Apps for Math and Science From edshelf by edshelf: Reviews & recommendations of tools for education If you teach math or science, you will likely find yourself asking your students to take out their rulers, compasses, protractors, thermometers, altimeters, and other measuring devices. Being able to see with a ruler and a protractor how a triangle with two equal sides really does have two equal angles can be powerful. Glenda Stewart-Smith of Surrey School District #36 in Canada put together this collection of iPhone and iPad apps that offer all of these measuring abilities and more.

The "Dark Side" of the Mandelbrot Set Via Join the Mathologer and his guest Darth Vader as they explore the Dark Side of the Mandelbrot set. Featuring an introduction to how the Mandelbrot set and the halo surrounding it is conjured up, an ingenious way to visualise what’s really going on inside the Mandelbrot set, as well as an appearance of the amazing Buddhabrot fractal. Special thanks to Melinda Green who discovered the Buddhabrot fractal in 1993 for letting us use her Buddhabrot pictures in this video. Check out her website for more information about this fractal as well as 4d Rubik’s cubes, stereophotography, etc

Time-Lapse GIFs Show Earth Transforming Over 25 Years Starting in the 1980s, Alaska's Columbia Glacier began retreating, shrinking from 41 miles long (its originally documented length in 1794) to 36 miles long in 1995. This is what that change actually looks like from space. The images are part of the Timelapse project from Google and TIME, what Google calls "the most comprehensive picture of our changing planet ever made available to the public." It comes from a collection of images taken between 1984 and 2012 as part of the Landsat program, a joint satellite mission between NASA and U.S. Geological Survey that has been snapping pics of Earth's surface since the early '70s.
