Solving equations is an important aspect of understanding algebra and many other topics in mathematics. In this video I am looking at the order of operations and how understanding them helps us understand how to solve equations. https://youtu.be/AKOZCEHBx9Q This is the first video in a series of videos that will focus on solving equations. We... Continue Reading →
Before developing any complex mathematical theorems or theory in general, people had to understand and use numbers. You might think that this is an easy concept to understand, but philosophers have been arguing for a while about them. The big question is if the concept of numbers exists outside of our cultures and brain. Are... Continue Reading →
July is going smoothly so far. We are very excited that we can bring so much content. We have tried to be more organized this month and all the hard work is showing. If there is anything you would like to see in our posts, let us know in the comment box. We hope you... Continue Reading →
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 →
We are very thankful for all the great recommandations we have received in our LThMath Book Club on Facebook. In this post we wanted to share some intriguing answers to the question: A couple of people recomended "The Three Body Problem*" by Cixin Liu for some interesting dynamical systems. Some mentioned that it is "especially... Continue Reading →
Last year, I have read one little book for children about Katherine Johnson. This is the first children book I have read since I was a child and it felt very refreshing and beautiful. So, let us speak about "Counting on Katherine: How Katherine Johnson put Astronouts on the Moon" by Helaine Becker*. Overview This... Continue Reading →
