Are we alone? Setting some limits to our uniqueness

Are we alone? Setting some limits to our uniqueness | Math, technology and learning | Scoop.it
Are humans unique and alone in the vast universe? This question—summed up in the famous Drake equation—has for a half-century been one of the most intractable and uncertain in science.
Margarita Parra's insight:
"Rather than asking how many civilizations may exist now, we ask 'Are we the only technological species that has ever arisen?" said Sullivan."

Exploring the Myth of the Scientific vs. Artistic Mind

Exploring the Myth of the Scientific vs. Artistic Mind | Math, technology and learning | Scoop.it
It’s a stereotype, but many of us have made the assumption that scientists are a bit rigid and less artistic than others. Artists, on the other hand, are often seen as being less rational than the rest of us. Sometimes described as the left side of the brain versus the right side–or simply logical thinking versus artistic creativity–the two are often seen as polar opposites.
Margarita Parra's insight:
"Neuroscience has already shown that everyone uses both sides of the brain when performing any task. And while certain patterns of brain activity have sometimes been linked to artistic or logical thinking, it doesn’t really explain who is good at what–and why."

Margarita Parra's insight:
"As Yves Meyer was getting ready to publish a detailed mathematical proof that he had spent months working on, he decided do a final search of the existing literature. In the reference list of one of the papers he had just peer-reviewed, he noticed what he describes as a "bizarre" paper published in 1959 by Andrew Paul Guinand. Upon further investigation, he was shocked to discover that Guinand had formulated the exact same proof to solve the same problem that Meyer had been working on, though the solution had remained deeply buried and completely forgotten."

Why logarithms still make sense

Why logarithms still make sense | Math, technology and learning | Scoop.it
Logarithms are a notoriously tricky topic for A-level students to grasp.  Having just about got their heads around laws of indices, we suddenly expect them to blithely apply a new - seemingly arbitrary - list of rules that turn index rules literally on their heads: Some people argue that logarithms are an outdated topic and have…
Margarita Parra's insight:
"Given that logarithms and this logarithmic number sense are such a natural part of how our brains interpret quantities, it makes perfect sense to try and find a rigorous mathematical way to represent and manipulate them."

Why Zero Is So Ridiculously Important

Why Zero Is So Ridiculously Important | Math, technology and learning | Scoop.it
Zero is a strange beast. It took until the 7th century for it to be explicitly recognized as a number in its own right, when the ancient Indians developed a numerical system that expressed zero with its own symbol. Since the development of this number system, which we still use today, zero has been instrumental in our exploration of mathematics.

15 Uncanny Examples of the Golden Ratio in Nature

15 Uncanny Examples of the Golden Ratio in Nature | Math, technology and learning | Scoop.it
The famous Fibonacci sequence has captivated mathematicians, artists, designers, and scientists for centuries. Also known as the Golden Ratio, its ubiquity and astounding functionality in nature suggests its importance as a fundamental characteristic of the Universe.
Margarita Parra's insight:
"The Fibonacci sequence starts like this: 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55 and so on forever. Each number is the sum of the two numbers that precede it. It's a simple pattern, but it appears to be a kind of built-in numbering system to the cosmos. Here are 15 astounding examples of phi in nature."
