July is going smoothly so far. Enjoy our 3rd Weekly Update - weekly announcements, historical facts, mathematicians, interesting articles and great book recommendations.
We have recently started a little project: creating comins presenting different mathematical lessons. The first series we plan to create is about Basic Algebraic Concepts. We are very excited for this and we hope you will like it.
We wanted to thank everyone for the support and enthusiasm for all the things we are doing. Take a look at everything we discovered, shared, enjoyed during the 2nd week of July.
Recently we shared a book on the mathematical developments of the Native Americans. We thought to present some book recommendations about how mathematical ideas were developed in different cultures. As David Hilbert has said "Mathematics knows no races or geographic boundaries; for mathematics, the cultural world is one country". Enjoy!
We have decided to start a new series of blog posts. This series is going to focus on weekly announcements, historical facts, mathematicians, interesting articles and great book recommendations. Without any more explanations let's get into the announcements: Announcements We are working on this new series So excited for this idea First lesson will be... Continue Reading →
