When it comes to simultaneous equations, I like to push the bounds of conventional pedagogical wisdom.

5:17 PM | PhotoMath, Solves Equations for You

Math teachers are not going to be happy with a new app called PhotoMath. The app solves equations using the camera function on a smartphone. Essentially, you just point the camera at an equation and the app computes, and spits out an answer. This may seem like a terrible idea because students won’t learn how to do basic math, but the app does ...

One of the exciting things about mathematical oncology is that thinking about cancer often forces me to leave my comfortable arm-chair and look at some actually data. No matter how much I advocate for the merits of heuristic modeling, when it comes to cancer, data-agnostic models take second stage to data-rich modeling. This close relationship […]
