Math is Fun! v3.0

A Prezi I made for my MAT 117 class. I believe I'll be adding more in the future. There's just too much about math that's fun! Be sure to comment on why you think math's fun too! =D No hate comments or spam please!!!

Transcript of Math is Fun! v3.0

FRACTALS!
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

The 1-2-3's of Math
Math = Universal Language
Based on Logic
Is a "Discovery of the Natural World" or "Invention Used to Describe Natural Phenomena"?

EVERYTHING
that you're learning now AND in life come back to you
WILL
Be Confident
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
Basic Arithmetics
Algebra
Geometry
More Algebra
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
Other Applications
Real-Life Fractals!

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
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."
