    in love with dance and mathematics. Math has always been my favorite subject in school, and my favorite time of the day has always been dance, where I can let my emotions out on the dance floor. Around high school, however, is when I determinately took notice that there is a possible connection between the work I perform in both of these areas. I realized that when I dance, I create shapes, patterns, angles and combinations, comparable to the ones I engender in mathematics. This epiphany has led

    the first ten million numbers, there would still be an infinite number of numbers left untested, ultimately resulting in the futility of this attempt. The only way to solve this mathematic impossibility, therefore, would be to create a mathematic proof by applying the work of previous mathematicians and scholars. A mathematic proof, as defined by Michael Hutchings of University of California-Berkley, is simply “an argument which convinces other people that something is true [through mathematical reasoning]”

    Mathematics At the recent annual meeting of the Psychology of Mathematics Education--North America Chapter, held in Florida, Bob and I were playing Frisbee on the beach. The lure of the surf soon led us into thigh deep water where waves added to the fun we were having with the wind.

    Mathematics In an attempt to express certain basic concepts of mathematics precisely, one should consider a handful of different accepted and developed conceptions. Pythagoras, in the Fifth Century B.C., believed that the ultimate elements of reality were numbers; therefore the explanation for the existence of any object could only be explained in number. Gottlob Frege stated, in an idea referred to as logicism, that mathematics could in some sense be reduced to logic. The views of Plato state

    By the time the Babylonians and Egypt developed their mathematics; Indians had worked independently and made an advanced mathematical discovery. During the early time of Indian, they were already familiar with arithmetic operations such as addition, multiplication, subtraction, multiplication, fractions, squares, cubes and roots. The evidence of using Pythagorean triples was also traced as part of Hindu mathematics long before Pythagoras. The Indian text known as “Sulba Sutras” contains a geometric

    Mathematics contributes to everyday life in some way or another. Some situations are simpler than others. Someone may just have to use simple addition or subtraction in paying his or her bills. Or someone may even have to use more complex math like solving for a missing variable in an equation to figure out the dimensions of a building. Mathematics will always be used in everyday life. Some theories and algorithms are more important or used more often than others. Many mathematicians have developed
