**Math is Fun!**

Addition

Multiplication

Exponents

add := (x, y) -> x + y

sub := (x, y) -> x - y

mult := (x, y) -> x * y

divide := (x, y) -> x / y

exp := (x, y) -> x ^ y

log := (x, y) -> log y

In Computer Science

Everything is a Function

x

Counting

1 = 1

2 = 1 + 1

3 = 1 + 1 + 1

4 = 1 + 1 + 1 + 1

Repeated Addition

1 * 2 = 2

2 * 2 = 2 + 2

3 * 2 = 2 + 2 + 2

4 * 2 = 2 + 2 + 2 + 2

Repeated Multiplication

3 = 3

3 = 3 * 3

3 = 3 * 3 * 3

3 = 3 * 3 * 3 * 3

Math = Universal Language

Based on Logic

Is a "Discovery of the Natural World" or "Invention Used to Describe Natural Phenomena"?

ASK QUESTIONS!!!

ASK QUESTIONS!!!

Answer:

Science

Engineering

answers WHY things are the way they are

answers HOW to solve problems of everyday life

inspired by "Math is not linear" Prezi Presentation by Alison Blank

Pre-Calculus

Calculus

. . . . Stats & Trig gets thrown in somewhere along the line

an entire class just to get ready for Calculus -__-

How "they" WANT you to learn

addition/subtraction/multiplication/division

problem solving, "plug 'n chug"

shapes...

where you all are now. math in terms of functions

or "Analytical Geometry"

And That's Why

DISCOVERED!

INVENTED!

Yeah, I totally stole this from Alison Blank

Really awesome prezi, by the way, you should totally take a look at it!

"Math is a passionate subject, an expression like art or music. It is a human endeavor like anything else."

- Dr. Joaquin Bustoz

Also:

Mathematicians Absolutely

to go on Random Tangents

Mobius Transformations

..

"The essence of mathematics is not to make simple things complicated, but to make complicated things simple."

- Dr. Stanley Gudder

Why?

Well, What is ?

Math

Used to Communicate Abstract

Thoughts, Ideas, and Processes

To a Wide Range of Audiences

As Such, we can Expand and Spread

our Knowledge to one Another and

get to Where we are Today

so what's the point in repeating the same process over & over again?

Thanks to the Use of Recursive Formulas and Functions, Computer Simulations & Graphing Calculators are able to Produce some Pretty Amazing Effects.

Even in Nature, you can find:

in the Anatomy of Living Creatures (Biology)

in the Behavior of Atomic Structures (Chemistry)

in the Motion and Movement of Matter (Physics)

Patterns

Patterns

So What am I Asking you for?

Whatever you end up doing, there will be some time in your life you'll be using math

If you don't, how will you ever learn the things YOU want to learn?

And there is (or will be) something out there you're fascinated in

BOTH

Mandelbrot Set

then what?

How Math Should be

Easy, but

Thought-Provoking !

Predictable & Useful

in Everyday Life !

Competitive

& Exciting !

Kaleidoscopes!

The "Invention" of Zero is (arguably) Contributed to

**haha Calculus Joke**

pg. 26, From the book:

The word algebra is derived from the Arabic word al-jabr…[which] means 'a restoration,' a reference to the fact that, if a number is added to one side of an equation, then it must also be added to the other side in order to 'restore' the equality…Of course, today, algebra has come to mean a great deal more."
