This idea comes by way of seeing literally dozens of threads about mathematics!
Yep...so you guessed it...I think we need a mathematics forum!
I understand a lot of what I am going to cover falls under education, computers and technology, philosophies, and of course space exploration (some of
every forum really), etc...!
The idea that we use new technology in High School and Colleges...and mathematics being the basis for a ton of scientific facts...might merit its own
One of the biggest factors in deciding what calculator to buy is the ability to use the calculator on high school standardized tests. The ACT and
SAT, the two most common college entrance exams, have restrictions that prohibit the use of certain devices. The ACT allows the TI 84 in all models,
but it prohibits the TI 89. The SAT allows both the TI 84 and the TI 89. Since these tests determine a great deal for post-high school education,
familiarity with one's own calculator is key to success on the math portions.
Some new code might need to be written for us math junkies...so instead of having something like this:
(x+a)^n=∑_(k=0)^n▒〖(n¦k) x^k a^(n-k) 〗
It would be seen in its more understood form...like this:
I think it would be appreciated by a lot of members if they could go to a forum and have some of their mathematical questions answered.
And for us math junkies...we would have a place to review calculator functions, explore theorems, and generally challenge each other intellectually
with stumping problems.
I can envision long winded discussions about poission theory's, statistical data, hypothesized analysis, etc...!
Maybe explore programs like Statdisk and Statcrunch!
I just think that it would be neat to have a place to do nothing but math...and seeing that it encompasses so many different forums...why not cover
the mathematical problems from those in one place?
Anyway...just a wild...off the hip... thought!
Here are a few examples of math related threads;
ETA: I suppose in the mean time...I would be happy to help out anyone with their problems...to the extent that I can anyway!
