• 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.

Relate to trying to help a friend who has a serious problem: a text message :( vs. meeting your friend face to face. Be responsible for your learning. It is too easy to "validate" your poor math test mark on the fact that you, and a few of your peers, agree that the "test was too difficult" or that the "teacher did not give enough examples to practice." You studied hard and failed a math test. What do you do? How you deal with failure is a major key to success! You work on a math problem and you cannot get the answer. When do you give up? Relate to persistence, grit. Math makes you think and discover truly interesting things, You realize that it's very little about talent, an...

    'Stop teaching calculating, start learning maths' - Conrad Wolfram on how re-conceptualized maths in education can step up to real-world needs. The importance of maths to jobs, society and thinking has exploded over the last few decades. Meanwhile, maths education fails to match-up. Why has this chasm opened up? Computers are central: when they do the calculating, people work on harder questions, try more concepts, and play with a multitude of new ideas. Conrad Wolfram explained why this fundamental shift is needed in education, and described the major project he's founded to build a dramatically new, problem-centric, computer-based maths curriculum. He asked which country could adopt a computer-based approach first, and leapfrog others in STEM. MORE about Conrad Wolfram: http://www.wise...

Do not waste your time. Reference to the 10,000 hours myth (and how, by age of 15 or 16, some kids spend that much time playing video games).

The usage of mathematics in baroque era has influenced many artists such as Bela Bartok, Arnold Schoenberg, Bach and many more.The combination of Fibonacci sequences and music has caused a new understanding in Turkish classical music history which is called Atonal Classical Composition. However, first and foremost, the understanding of “Positive Sciences and Arts shall never go together” has been broken. Jülide Ece Dursun is an IB student at Eyüboğlu High School whilst also being a part-time student in Kadıköy Fine Arts High School, Vocal Department. Her passion for music took its shape when she started taking piano lessons from one of the foremost musicians in Turkey, Namık Yakuboğlu. She aims to become a multi-instrumentalist, while being able to play violin alongside piano. Her musical passion soon met with mathematics when she enrolled in The Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TÜBİTAK) with a six-month long project where she combined maths with music. The project called “Voice of Fibonacci” has demolished the mentality that indicates that ‘positive Sciences and Arts shall never go together’ by combining maths with music. The project passed Regional Finals but did not win an award. Her determination to break through is as solid as a rock as she currently continues with another project, again combining arts with positive sciences. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
