## Free tools for maths education | 21st Century Educator

Brendan Cooper's curator insight,

Use the graphing tools of Geogebra and Wolfram Alpha to determin the following:

1. What are the x and y intercepts of the circle x^2 + y^2 = 9.

2. What is the angle sum of a hexagon in radians and degrees.

Tom Gilbert's curator insight,

Something to read (and hopefully understand) when I get to the appropriate topic.

## How DO We Learn Math?

What makes it possible to learn advanced math fairly quickly is that the human brain is capable of learning to follow a given set of rules without understanding them, and apply them in an intellige...

## Fun With Beer And Mathematics

After a long day of toil and trouble, there’s nothing quite like a cold, refreshing beer.

As you take your first pull from the bottle or glass, your worries immediately drift away, and as you set your vessel down, you begin to lose yourself in the effervescence of it all, just as the bubbles slowly and continually rise to the top.

That is, of course, unless you’re drinking a stout, such as the popular Irish drink of choice, Guinness. That's where science comes into play. Just like beer, science is often more fun when it’s shared. . . .

## Ignoring 500 Billion Galaxies: Mathematics vs Common Sense in the Debate About the Probability of Extraterrestrial Life

Carl Sagan said that "extraordinary claims, require extraordinary evidence." In a stunning display of mathematical logic vs common sense, David Spiegel of Princeton University and Edwin Turner from the University of Tokyo published a paper last summer that turns the Drake equation upside down using Bayesian reasoning to show that just because we evolved on Earth, doesn’t mean that the same occurrence would necessarily happen elsewhere; "using evidence of our own existence doesn’t show anything" they argue, "other than that we are here."

## The Mathematics of Altruism

For decades, biologists have debated whether individuals sacrifice themselves to save those who share their genes or in effect to benefit the whole group. University of Vermont researcher Charles Goodnight has shown through mathematical models that the two views of altruism, kin selection versus group selection, are in fact equivalent behaviors.

The research sheds new light on fundamental issues in evolutionary theory.

## Parents Guide / Math Skills Development

"Children know many math concepts through early play. As infants they know that they are small and their mother and father are big even though they do not know the words. Toddlers know that if they put one block on top of another, they will have two even though they do not know the words. They know that if they have 2 blocks and you have 10, you have more and they want them..."
