Topology was my favorite course in pure maths. I love it because it's a powerful abstract theory to describe intuitive and visual ideas about space. This article gives you an introduction to this amazing field. We'll introduce graph topology, metric spaces, continuity and connectedness.
Mathics is a free, general-purpose online computer algebra system featuring Mathematica-compatible syntax and functions. It is backed by highly extensible Python code, relying on SymPy for most mathematical tasks and, optionally, Sage for more advanced stuff.
More than facing mathematical or real world problems, today's greatest challenge of mathematics is to attract more and more minds to understand, use and improve modern mathematics. This post explains my solution to this great challenge.
Although highly appreciated by artists, self-reference has been a nightmare for mathematicians. It took one of the greatest, Kurt Gödel, to provide a better understanding of it. This article deals with paradoxes, recursion, fractals and Gödel's incompleteness theorems.
A researcher has found that engaging elementary school students in science for as little as 10 hours a year can lead to improved test scores in math and language arts.
