I was facing challenges when my four year old daughter requested me to teach her mathematic at home. The sine wave is one of the most basic wave patterns in mathematics and is depicted by smoothly alternating crest-trough regularity. Mathematics is used to create the complex programming at the heart of all computing. The Scriptures even inform us about what kind of mathematics is legitimate, the kind with the source of truth as revelation, verses any secularized version of revelation. Congratulations also to Calvin Deng and David Stoner, for placing first and third place in this year’s Virginia Tech Regional Mathematics Contest. The Mathematics Assessment Project is part of the Math Design Collaborative initiated by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

What is viewed as mathematical ability cannot just depend on the computational, but should also take into account the spatial reasoning, symbolic reasoning, logic and broad problem-solving ability. A scientific theory by definition should work all the time and none of the above do furthermore, they are not objective and that is the definition of a scientific theory. The project set out to design and develop well-engineered tools for formative and summative assessment that expose students’ mathematical knowledge and reasoning, helping teachers guide them towards improvement and monitor progress. Mathematics is about pattern and structure; it is about logical analysis, deduction, calculation within these patterns and structures.

Encyclopaedia of Mathematics online encyclopaedia from Springer , Graduate-level reference work with over 8,000 entries, illuminating nearly 50,000 notions in mathematics. Some say that the student who ignores God as he does mathematical tasks is not neutral, but even rebellious and ungrateful toward the Giver of all his knowledge (Proverbs 3:6;Hosea 4:6). Professor Auckly was the co-founder and is co-director of the Navajo Nation Math Circles Project.

Instructor Roger Casals has been awarded the José Luis Rubio de Francia Prize from the Royal Spanish Mathematical Society. Providing children with hands-on math games that approaches mathematical thinking and problem- solving concepts in a different manner will help the learning and engaging process that children need. The award recognizes an individual who has made a transformative impact on the mathematical sciences and their applications. Zala films spent two years following the project and produced a documentary film called Navajo Math Circles.

Hardy recognized Ramanujan’s brilliance in the early 20th century and mentored Ramanujan as he became a world renowned mathematician while enduring much personal trauma. Intuition and experimentation also play a role in the formulation of conjectures in both mathematics and the (other) sciences. See video examples of the standards for mathematical practice at different grade levels.
