Math is forever

Math is forever | Math, technology and learning | Scoop.it
With humor and charm, mathematician Eduardo Sáenz de Cabezón answers a question that’s wracked the brains of bored students the world over: What is math for? He shows the beauty of math as the backbone of science — and shows that theorems, not diamonds, are forever. In Spanish, with English subtitles.
Margarita Parra's insight:

Math is forever.

'Don't Become a Teacher': A History

'Don't Become a Teacher': A History | Math, technology and learning | Scoop.it
Teachers have a long history of being hesitant to recommend the teaching profession.
Margarita Parra's insight:

"If you don't like teaching, if you don't like children—then get out of teaching. ... Don't wait until you get married, because for some teachers that's a long time." (This, of course, was back in the days when primary education was a field reserved for unmarried women.)"

Yo me emociono cuando mis ex alumnos incursionan en la docencia. En algnos casos (contados) ¡me da miedo!

Margarita Parra's insight:

Este número de la Revista de Docencia Universitaria está dedicado al Aprendizaje Basado en Problemas. Me parece particularmente importante la lectura del artículo de Peter A.J. Bouhuij: "Implementing Problem Based Learning: Why is it so hard?"  

Porque no son enchiladas. Sin los cambios culturales y conceptuales que se necesitan para la implementación, no pasará de ser tratado como una moda, con pésimos resultados para los alumnos.

The Infinite Hotel Paradox - Jeff Dekofsky

The Infinite Hotel Paradox - Jeff Dekofsky | Math, technology and learning | Scoop.it
The Infinite Hotel, a thought experiment created by German mathematician David Hilbert, is a hotel with an infinite
number of rooms. Easy to comprehend, right? Wrong. What if it’s
completely booked but one person wants to check in? What about 40? Or an
infinitely full bus of people? Jeff Dekofsky solves these heady lodging issues using Hilbert’s paradox.
Margarita Parra's insight:

Hablemos de infinito, de la mano de Hilbert.

Mathematicians Chase Moonshine’s Shadow

Mathematicians Chase Moonshine’s Shadow | Math, technology and learning | Scoop.it
Researchers are on the trail of a mysterious connection between number theory, algebra and string theory
Margarita Parra's insight:

"In mathematics, monstrous moonshine, or moonshine theory, is a term devised by John Conway and Simon P. Norton in 1979, used to describe the unexpected connection between the monster group M and modular functions, in particular, the j function. It is now known that lying behind monstrous moonshine is a certainconformal field theory having the monster group as symmetries. The conjectures made by Conway and Norton were proved by Richard Borcherds in 1992 using the no-ghost theorem from string theory and the theory of vertex operator algebras and generalized Kac–Moody algebras." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monstrous_moonshine
