guest post by David Tanzer Last time we introduced the concept of stochastic resonance. Briefly, it’s a way that noise can amplify a signal, by giving an extra nudge that helps a system receiving that signal make the jump from one state to another. Today we’ll describe a program that demonstrates this concept. But first, […]

Things should be as simple as possible, but not simpler (Albert Einstein) Following with conjectures about primes, it is time for Andrica’s conjecture. The great mathematician Leonhard Euler (1707-1783) pointed: “Mathematicians have tried with no success to find some kind of order in the sequence of prime numbers and today we have reasons to believe that […]

The sensing matrices in Uncertainty Quantification are very structured and so it is sometimes difficult to use solvers relying on gaussian measurement matrices and one wonders if solvers different from L1 could be contemplating in light of the recent SwAMP thing.Compressive Sampling of Polynomial Chaos Expansions: Convergence Analysis and Sampling Strategies by Jerrad Hampton, Alireza DoostanSampling orthogonal polynomial bases via Monte Carlo is of interest for uncertainty

Last year I found an activity from a sample textbook series that I really like for geometry terms.I bought foam circles from the Dollar Tree and wrote letters on them with Sharppies. Then I used magnetic tape and 3M tape to post the circles around the classroom.The textbook even shows how to set it up.Here's what it looked like for me:I included the game at the end of this worksheet done in class:

Two 12-hr work days down, 5 days until school officially starts. (Cliche about how there’s never enough time). I’m optimistic about this year, but I can’t remember a school year that I didn’t have a positive outlook. (Incurable, I’m told). Yes, this summer, I attended Twitter Math Camp, and there’s a lot of residual glow […]
