The true story of eighteenth-century mathematician Sophie Germain, who solved the unsolvable to achieve her dream.When her parents took away her candles to keep their young daughter from studying math...nothing stopped Sophie.

Most people think of mathematicians as solitary, working away in isolation. And, it's true, many of them do. But Paul Erdos never followed the usual path. At the age of four, he could ask you when you were born and then calculate the number of seconds you had been alive in his head.

This colorfully illustrated biography of the Greek philosopher and scientist Eratosthenes, who compiled the first geography book and accurately measured the globe's circumference, is just right for budding mathematicians, scientists, historians, and librarians!

As a child, Katherine Johnson loved to count. She counted the steps on the road, the number of dishes and spoons she washed in the kitchen sink, everything! Boundless, curious, and excited by calculations, young Katherine longed to know as much as she could about math, about the universe.

Every child is a natural mathematician, according to Mitsumasa Anno. Children are constantly comparing and classifying things and events they observe around them. As they try to bring sense and order into what they observe, they are actually performing basic mathematical feats.

Join Sir Cumference, Lady Di of Ameter, and their son Radius for wordplay, puns, and problem solving in this geometry-packed math adventure. King Arthur was a good ruler, but now he needs a good ruler. What would you do if the neighboring kingdom were threatening war?

Children's Choice Award winner Bethany Barton applies her signature humor to the scariest subject of all: math! Do multiplication tables give you hives? Do you break out in a sweat when you see more than a few numbers hanging out together?

Telling a story about pigeons should be simple. But what's a narrator to do when the number of feathered friends is constantly changing? Can our intrepid storyteller use math facts to keep up with the unstable quantities. . . or is this pigeon-centric tale doomed?

Mouse and her friends want to play tug-of-war, but they'll need to use some everyday math to figure out how to make teams that are equal. As Mouse looks at various solutions she is not sure what it means to be equal. Nothing works until Mouse starts to think about it mathematically and divides the teams based on weight. Wonderful illustrations capture Mouse and her animal friends from whiskers to tails as they work to measure and equalize their teams based on size, weight, and effort.

Mr. Tiffin and his students explore skip counting and estimation in a fun pumpkin-themed classroom experiment! This book makes a wonderful read-aloud companion to any math or science curriculum, and it's a fun way to reinforce counting skills at home.

Chuan and Jing Jing use their mathematical skills to ensure that the warlord wakes up on time. They are traveling to the emperor's palace, and they can only sleep for four hours before resuming their journey in order to arrive as the emperor's gates open.

Mathematician David M. Schwartz and illustrator Steven Kellog join forces to knock complex numbers down to size, with some help from Mavelossissimo the Mathematical Magician. It's a math class you'll never forget.

I think for me the first thing that comes to mind is that picture books can help make math feel more real for our kids. It moves those abstract ideas into the concrete. It uses the words and the pictures to do that. Things like shapes and patterns and numbers, a lot of that can be learned, can be approached even, without a curriculum at the beginning.

Yeah, I can remember my son asking, when he was younger and we were starting out with some math stuff, why he needed to know certain math concepts, and I noticed that was only happening with math. He was inherently fascinated by history. He loves stories. He loves science because kids want to know how things work. He loves nature and art and music, but why did he have to know what 475 watermelons minus 231 watermelons equaled? When would he ever encounter that kind of thing in real life?

Awesome. So those are two great reasons to introduce math concepts through picture books or to deepen math concepts through picture books. Number one, because they help our kids see math as real and useful for their actual life. Number two, because this is just a cozier way to do math. Maybe that even gives our kids a better chance to fall in love with it.

When you were talking about Mathematicians Are People Too, Kara, I used that book, I remember, with my oldest daughter, who was really into history and historical fiction, anything historical at all, whether it was a biography or it was a historical fiction novel or something. That book really captured her imagination because she needs a person. She needs a character to fall in love with, and that book puts the character at the front of the story. Then the math hangs on that.

I mean, are you kidding me? All that math to tell you how many runs a player gave their team, and then we just divide it by 10 and call it wins? This is the stat people tear their hair out over?

As instructors experiment with guided notes, certain features show a lot of promise. One that I found incredibly interesting was a style developed by engineering professor Susan Reynolds to accompany her lectures: The notes combine typed information, handwritten content, and graphics, but still leave room for student notes and working out example problems.

Additional back matter includes: a letter from Eugenia encouraging readers not to be intimidated by math, explanations of the math concepts explored in the book, and a recipe for Banana Butterscotch Pie!

Cryptography is about information processing. It can be described as mathematical transformations. Mathematics doesn't depend on the date. If I can decrypt something today, I could already decrypt it yesterday, assuming I have received no new information since yesterday. If you want to make something decryptable after a certain date but not before, you have to provide extra information at that date.

Fedorenko: As you know, for many years, centuries really, researchers have studied individuals with language problems. The reason there is very clear. We can learn a lot about how something works by looking at ways in which it can break or malfunction. We have learned a lot from individuals with both developmental disorders like autism, as well as acquired disorders like aphasia, due to a stroke or degeneration or head trauma or something like that.

But in terms of evidence, yes, it seems that the language system is relatively silent as, as measured with tools like fMRI, when you engage in playing chess, solving problems, doing math, all sorts of things that you would think would be closely linked to language or relying on linguistic representations. In individuals with severe aphasia or severe language problems, you can ask them to do all sorts of things. Short, of translating them into language, like understanding language or producing language, they can do everything that you and I can do. They can navigate the world, they can understand others' intentions, as long as you don't have to rely on the verbal cues, you can infer it from people's behaviors, actions, facial expressions, and things like that. They can do Sudoku puzzles. They have the same richness of their mental worlds as they did before they had this major stroke event, they just lose the ability to convert those thoughts into a code that other humans can understand.

Fedorenko: That's right. The question is there, was it necessary for language to be there early on to get some of these capacities to develop? That's an interesting question, because of course in these adult stroke cases they had both language and they had their general intelligence. Then at some point the language system is basically taken out and the rest of cognition seems okay. But maybe if you don't have access to language early on, you can't actually develop the ability to categorize things in the world or do math or something like that. Of course, it's much harder to ask that question because you can't deprive kids of language.

But there are cases where deaf kids are born to hearing parents, which is actually the majority of deaf kids, are born to hearing parents. Their parents don't know sign language because they typically wouldn't have had a reason to learn sign language. In some such cases, these kids don't get access to language for sometimes a few years, sometimes into their teenage years. It hardly ever happens in the U.S. anymore because of all the education about deafness and the importance of sign language, but from the anecdotal evidence and some sparse experimental evidence that exists, it seems that, again, most things you can learn without language. Not that it wouldn't be easier if you had language, but it's not like you can't learn math absent linguistic input. I think there's more work to be done on that. I think it's a very exciting population that can shed light on this question, but there's only a handful of individuals who really were lacking language for a long enough time that they would've mattered. I'm trying to team up with a researcher at BU to try to look at this more systematically.

We have looked at various model architectural types used to perform video classification. Now let us take a look at the types of activity recognition problems out there in the context of video classification.

Before we start off this section we need to make it very clear that we are only going to scratch the surface of the topic of boundary value problems. There is enough material in the topic of boundary value problems that we could devote a whole class to it. The intent of this section is to give a brief (and we mean very brief) look at the idea of boundary value problems and to give enough information to allow us to do some basic partial differential equations in the next chapter. 041b061a72
