2:07 PM | Meet the hyperbola
Rachel Thomas It might not be as familiar as the circle or parabola, but it's definitely worth getting to know the hyperbola! Out of the conic sections, we are most familiar with the circle and its generalisation, the ellipse, and the parabola. To most of us, the hyperbola seems a far stranger beast. read more

5:00 AM | Enseigner les mathématiques : entre réalité et utopie.
Les nombreux problèmes qui se posent dans l'enseignement des mathématiques n'indiffèrent personne. Beaucoup de gens en parlent, mais peu les posent de façon concrète. C'est que le débat est déjà difficile à porter auprès de la communauté mathématique, et il l'est encore plus au niveau du public. C'est à cet effet que le site Images des Mathématiques souhaite offrir un espace de discussions ouvert à tous ceux qui se sentent touchés par ces questions. Ils pourront y échanger […]

8:30 AM | The deconstruction of paradoxes in epidemiology
If a “revolution” in our field or area of knowledge was ongoing, would we feel it and recognize it? And if so, how? I think a methodological “revolution” is probably going on in the science of epidemiology, but I’m not totally sure. Of course, in science not being sure is part of our normal state. And we mostly like it. The post The deconstruction of paradoxes in epidemiology appeared first on OUPblog.         Related StoriesCelebrating World […]
