This blog is a more accessible version of the Problem Solving blog I had on Myspace. Since that site is somewhat of a dying trend, I'll try to harvest some of the more memorable problems and concepts and build upon them here.

The problems and concepts covered in these writings has the potential to vary greatly from week to week. I'll try to keep things conceptually simple, but I can't make any guarantees.

Basically, I want to use this to highlight some of my favorite parts of Mathematics. We'll see algebra, trigonometry, geometry, probability and statistics, we may even get into some calculus and numerical analysis. I promise that I'll try my best to make things as lucid as possible.

It always irks me when a person will say, "I'm not a math person." Or, "I got as far as basic algebra and that was all I could understand." Mathematics is the language of our universe and if we look hard enough, sometimes we can see the fabric of our own reality. I'll never be able to understand how we became a world full of math-illiterates. I'll try to do what little I can to change that.

ReplyDeleteI actually just recently learned how to solve percentage problems. I never knew the formula, but now that I do it is kind of fun.

ReplyDeletebro i think i love you.

ReplyDeleteJust curious but have you read any books on problem solving? If so, which ones?

I'm pretty jazzed to read what you have coming.. it'd be nice to get those parts of my brain working again!
