    Mathematics cannot be learned by watching someone else (teacher, tutor, peer) do it -- you need to do it yourself. 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

    '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...

Limpopo top matric achiever hopes to improve communities using passion for maths. Johannesburg – Takalani Bambela from Limpopo’s Tshivhase Secondary School has told News24 that he wants to get into actuarial science to contribute not only to business and community development, but the economy as well. Maths and science have been stressed as subjects of importance as South Africa has been ranked as one of the worst performers in the world in both subjects. This did not deter Bambela, who was announced on Thursday as the top achiever in the maths, and maths and science categories. He achieved third position in quintile 2. He told News24 that he has been accepted at the University of the Witwatersrand to study towards a degree in actuarial science in 2018. The bespectacled youth said he loves maths and is looking forward to using his passion for the subject to give something back to communities and provide a platform for young minds. He said he hopes to do this by also opening up his own businesses which he hopes will help improve rural communities. "With actuarial science, I will be able to use the mathematical skills which I would have attained ... to help local businesses assess and manage the risks that they will encounter along the journey of their businesses. "This will result in local businesses growing ... then there will be more inflow of money into our country resulting in our economy growing," he said. Bambela’s achievements did not come easy. "It was all about hard work and getting support from my teachers and my parents, they always motivated me to study hard throughout the year and not let my dream vanish because of societal situations and my background," he said. 'My pillar of strength' Bambela explained that he didn't come from a well-off family and that he persevered through the help of his 56-year-old grandmother who took him in. He said without her, he would not be where he is. "My stepfather didn’t want me so I went on to live with my grandmother and from there on, my grandmother looked after me, she supported me, she was always there for me, she was my pillar of strength throughout my schooling career so I am very thankful to her," he said. Bambela encouraged this year’s matriculants to look beyond their current situation and to aim ahead. "They must see themselves in the future achieving big things." He said this vision should then motivate them to overcome any challenges which they will encounter.

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

Mathematics cannot be learned by watching someone else (teacher, tutor, peer) do it -- you need to do it yourself. 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, and a whole lot more about working hard. Don't lead a shallow life, reflect often on people and things that surround you. Whatever you truly care for (parents, friends, sports, hobbies) requires your energy, dedication and lots of time. 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). Imagine where you would be if you spent 10,000 hours doing math!

'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.
