Some Thoughts on the Collatz Conjecture Including Its Implications for Philosophy
In 1937 Lothar Collatz posed what may be the simplest unsolved problem in mathematics. Mathematicians have, ever since, had to resist engaging with this vampire problem, which may stop them doing meaningful work ever again.
Multiplying 2 Digits Numbers Times Another Number the Easy Way
Was kind of testing this method of multiplying... and I was surprised myself
At-Home Opportunities to Teach Math
Math is a fundamental ability that will be utilized for your youngster's whole life. There is no getting away from it. Without math, your youngster would have a startling future and not be able to do basic errands, for example, heat treats and gap medication measurements accurately. The following ar
Locally Weighted Regression(lowess)
This article will explain the concept of locally weighted regression, which is a type of linear regression. We use linear regression in cases where the dataset is linearly correlated and is not suitable for non-linear datasets. For non-linear datasets, a concept of LOWESS is introduced.
Math 5: Geometry and Trigonometry
The Geometric figures are anyfigure that is formed in space that meets certain characteristics. For its study many factors are considered, the number of sides it has, the length of those sides, its internal angles, and that it is closed (that is, that all its sides are connected by a vertex).
Math 1: Least Common Multiple and Greatest Common Divisor
Math Lesson 1: What is it and how to calculate LCM and GCD.
My Father’s Workshop: Five Letter Opposite Words Game & Puzzle
The Five Letter Opposite Word Game and Puzzle is easy to make from a single sheet of paper in about 30 minutes with only a pencil, pen, and ruler. It is a slider type puzzle that involves moving letter pieces from top to bottom. Easy to make, hard to solve. Originally designed in 1957.
Monty Hall Problem: Choose The Other Door For The Goat
Few people would have predicted the mathematical controversy that would follow the first time the 'three door problem' was played on the quiz show, Let's Make A Deal. The game is easy to play, but the implications in terms of probability theory were controversial and divisive.
The Pancake Problem: How do we solve it?
An enthusiastic teacher goes overboard to discuss the famous Pancake Problem, bringing in sorting algorithms and recursion techniques in an analysis of stacks of different sized pancakes. Intuitive conclusions are drawn regarding the number of pancake tosses a hapless chef needs to make.
Pick’s Theorem To Find The Area Of A Polygon
The area of a flat shape can be estimated by dividing it into unit squares and counting their number. Pick's Theorem provides a method to find the exact area of a polygon drawn on a dotted grid. We look at how the Theorem works and establish a proof using Euler's formula.
Do I Love To Shake Hands? Let Me Count The Ways!
Shaking hands is one of the most common activities we do. But have you considered just how many handshakes you would have to make in a room full of people? We will delve into the mathematics of handshaking and combinatorial analysis.
Number of Regions Formed by Connecting Points on the Perimeter of a Circle
This mathematical investigation generally aimed to develop a mathematical formula to calculate the number of regions formed by connecting the points on the perimeter of a circle. Specifically, this investigation aimed to observe some patterns that will help the investigator develop a conjecture.
Ubiquitous Barcodes and ISBN
Virtually every processed item, be it animal, vegetable or mineral, has associated with it a signature known as a barcode. This article examines two standard footprints that provide substantial information about a product; EAN-13 and ISBN.
The Language of Mathematics
Mathematical language is a system used to express, communicate and convey mathematical information. It is distinct and unique from the usual language that people are used to and is used to communicate abstract and logical ideas. Mathematical language is characterized by abstraction symbols and rule.
Fibonacci Sequence and Binet's Formula
Fibonacci Sequence is popularized in Europe by Leonardo of Pisa, famously known as Leonardo Fibonacci. The nth term of a Fibonacci sequence is found by adding up the two Fibonacci numbers before it. But how can we find the nth term of a Fibonacci sequence without it's two preceding terms?

5 Representations of Relations and Functions
A relation or function can be represented in five ways–ordered pairs, table of values, mapping diagram, graph, and rule or equation. This article will give you the discussion on these 5 representations of relations or functions.
Mathematics and its Relation With Nature: Fibonacci, Turing Patterns and Chaos Theory
This article establishes mathematics' relation with beautiful components of nature. It focusses on the technicalities associated with it and explains the reason behind it. It's an answer to the curiosity that arises when we admire the beauty of these creations.
How to Memorize the Properties of Quadrilaterals
Geometric shapes are always good to look at but sometimes difficult to memorize with regards to what are the properties they have in common, what makes them different and so on. So, here we are to discuss some tips which makes learning the properties of quadrilaterals easy.
Finding the Correlation Coefficient Using Pearson Correlation and Spearman Rank Correlation
Spearman Rank Correlation and Pearson Correlation can be both used to identify the relationship between two sets of data. This a brief comparison between the two measures of correlation and there are examples provided to explain how to solve them.
Do You See False Patterns in Random Data?
Coincidence or the presence of a certain third, unseen factor? Is this how a conspiracy theory is born? An illusory correlation or in Latin, 'um hoc ergo propter hoc', "with this, therefore because of this," also called the false cause.
