Engineer Discovers Something Amazing in Da Vinci's 'Irrelevant Scribbles'

Engineer Discovers Something Amazing in Da Vinci's 'Irrelevant Scribbles' | Math, technology and learning | Scoop.it
Never assume that Leonardo Da Vinci’s doodles are meaningless. That, at least, is the takeaway of a new study out of the University of Cambridge, which shows that a page of Leonardo’s scribbled notes from 1493—previously dismissed as “irrelevant” by art historians—is actually the first written demonstration of the laws of friction.
Margarita Parra's insight:
“The sketches and text show Leonardo understood the fundamentals of friction in 1493,” Hutchings said in a statement. “He knew that the force of friction acting between two sliding surfaces is proportional to the load pressing the surfaces together and that friction is independent of the apparent area of contact between the two surfaces. These are the ‘laws of friction’ that we nowadays usually credit to a French scientist, Guillaume Amontons, working two hundred years later.”

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.

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."

An Introduction to the Literary Philosophy of Marcel Proust, Presented in a Monty Python-Style Animation

An Introduction to the Literary Philosophy of Marcel Proust, Presented in a Monty Python-Style Animation | Math, technology and learning | Scoop.it

Those who know the name Marcel Proust, if not his work itself, know it as that of the most solitary and introspective of writers—a name become an adjective, describing an almost painfully delicate variety of sensory reminiscence verging on tantric solipsism.
Margarita Parra's insight:
"The reason why life may be judged to be trivial, although at certain moments it seems to us so beautiful, is that we form our judgment ordinarily not on the evidence of life itself, but of those quite different images which preserve nothing of life, and therefore we judge it disparagingly."

Amazing math from mathematicians to share with kids

Amazing math from mathematicians to share with kids | Math, technology and learning | Scoop.it
About two years ago I saw this Numberphile interview with Ed Frenkel: One of the ideas that Frenkel mentions in the interview is that professional mathematicians haven't done a good job sharing math with the general public. Although I'm not really the kind of professional mathematician Frenkel was talking about, I took his words to…
Margarita Parra's insight:
"It turns out that there are some fantastic ideas that are out there for kids to see. Some surprising fun I had sharing Larry Guth’s “no rectangles” problem with kids earlier this week (see below) made me want to share some of the ideas I’ve found in the last couple of years, so here are a few examples: (1) One of the most incredible lectures that you’ll ever see is Terry Tao’s “Cosmic Distance Ladder” lecture"

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…

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.
