• A Passion for Math: Elly Schofield at TEDxClaremontColleges

    Elly is a student studying math. And she's mad. She's mad about how math was taught to her growing up and why nobody told her that being good at math has nothing to do with finishing problems quickly or flawlessly. She puts forth her idea of what more effective math curriculum might look like in the future.

From using mathematics to reveal patterns in our sex lives, to using sex to prime our brain for certain types of problems, to understanding them both in terms of the evolutionary roots of our brain, Dr Clio Cresswell shares her insight into it all. Dr Clio Cresswell is a Senior Lecturer in Mathematics at The University of Sydney researching the evolution of mathematical thought and the role of mathematics in society.

  • Tomorrow Today | In profile: Math genius Julia Ruscher

    21-year-old Julia Ruscher is a math genius. Numbers have been her passion from an early age. Now she is studying at the Berlin Mathematical School, where she is involved in research projects in Israel and the US. Julia Ruscher's area of expertise is stochastic processes, which seek to make sense of seemingly random occurrences. Her research focuses on the growth of animal and human populations. We spend a day with Julia Ruscher at university in Berlin and take a look behind the scenes at math research at the highest level.

Although around 40% of the UK undergraduates in mathematics are women, there is a well-documented leaking pipeline when it comes to women choosing to do a PhD and then choosing an academic career path. The proportion of women mathematicians declines rapidly the higher one looks on the academic ladder. Unfortunately, this often makes women who do choose this career path invisible, to students who are about to choose their A-levels, even to students who are already pursuing a maths degree. Therefore the women at the School of Mathematical Sciences at University of Nott...

Imagine that you had to take an art class in which they taught you only how to paint a fence or a wall, but never showed you the paintings of the great masters. Alas, this is how math is taught, and so for most of us it becomes the intellectual equivalent of watching paint dry. Edward Frenkel wants to open this secret world to all of us because it can teach us so much about the mysteries of the Universe. In this talk, he weaves the discovery of math with his personal journey, addressing the existential questions of finding out who we are; of truth, courage, and passion.

And yes - it can be combined with having a family!

Hi all, Quite a wondrous and playful exchange of enlightening thoughts and warranted contentions between a handful of igniting beings. ❧▬▬▬▬▬▬ Lawrence Krauss: You're a professor of math as well as physics. Probably, the only one on the table. Brian Green: Yeah. And, the question that comes to me is how do you* know that math is the language of the universe? (*Neil had previously stated that mathematics is the language of the universe) Bill Nye: I was going to say what about the multi? Neil deGrasse Tyson: The universe told me. Bill Nye: Pretty good first approximation. I'll tell ya. LK: Okay. Now, you mean science by revelation. BG: Could it be... I have a question about this. Could you imagine that one day far into the future we encounter some alien civilization and they say "Hey! Show us what you've done to understand the universe." We bring out our math books with all our theorems and physics and they turn to us and say "Math? We've tried that. It takes ya just so far. And, the real way to do it is like this..." NDT: I would say that whatever that real way is, is not manifest to us at this moment. And until that day happens where an alien tells us how backwards we are, all I could say is that the math that we did invent out of our human brain, as you surely know Eugene Wigner said "The unreasonable effectiveness of mathematics in describing the universe/" The fact that it works at all is sufficient enough for me. LK: But, here I want to have a note in here. NDT: Wait, and just because you still can't figure out your string theory, don't come then crying to me. Don't come crying to me, 'cause you can't figure it out. Ira Flatow: You got 'im started. See. You got 'im started. NDT: Don't get me started. LK: No. But, I want to go on record... IF: He warned you not to get him started. LK: But I want to go on record... I want to go on record and this is a momentous occasion. I want to go on record as agreeing with Brian. Bill Nye: Is anybody keeping the record? LK: But... No. In the sense that, it is facinating if you are a theoretical physicist to wonder, when you find something fascinating, whether some mathematical formulas are fascinating...whether it's a property of our brains or whether it's a property of the universe. And, we just don't know, I think, is the answer. If string theory is... BG: Right. But, let me ask you a question. I find it slightly confusing. Because Neil, you describe math as something that we create. So, why is it the thing that we create is somehow intrinsic to the universe as our description? NDT: Isn't that awesome? I don't lose sleep over that, I celebrate it. BG: It's a good thing. I celebrate it, too. LK: But, it is a question. There may be limitations on understanding the universe, because of the way our brains work. And, I think... NDT: It's surely the case. That's surely the case. LK: And for Republicans, it's only happened. But, ummm... No, but seriously. That is an interesting question. We really have to wonder about that. And if you're again working as some of us are at the forefront of physics, you wonder at some point when it's going to end. NDT: It's some Republicans. BN: To the questioner's question*, I wouldn't worry about the possibility that mathematics is going to turn out to be ineffective in describing the universe and use that as a reason to not keep practicing it. (*the original questioner's question: "I've always wanted to be an astronautical engineer, but I am horrible at math. But, I've got lots of passion. Can this dream ever be a reality and where do I start?" ❧▬▬▬▬▬▬ The above snippet was gleaned from: 2013 Origins: The Great Debate: The Storytelling of Science (*Personal note: I do suggest starting with part 2.
