Mathematics possesses not only truth, but supreme beauty
On a personal note...
-Inscription over the door of Plato's Academy
Give me something to construct and I shall become God for the time being, pushing aside all obstacles, winning all the hard knowledge I need for the construction ... advancing Godlike to my goal!
J. L. Synge
The following write-ups represent mathematical activities and experiences that connect the use of important and innovative technology with the mathematics studied by students at the secondary level. Click on each to delve into a new mathematic topic that integrates technology to help convey the topic.
Their interest will be stimulated if only we can eliminate the aversion toward mathematics that so many have acquired from childhood experiences.
It is my hope that these write-ups will help stimulate the interest of students plaqued with mathematics hang-ups and help them to understand that learning mathematics can be interesting, exciting, and useful.
