    Pascals Triangle Blas Pascal was born in France in 1623. He was a child prodigy and was fascinated by mathematics. When Pascal was 19 he invented the first calculating machine that actually worked. Many other people had tried to do the same but did not succeed. One of the topics that deeply interested him was the likelihood of an event happening (probability). This interest came to Pascal from a gambler who asked him to help him make a better guess so he could make an educated guess. In the coa...

    Tenure is a topic that has produced much heated discussion in recent years. Some argue that tenure is an outmoded c once and, if institutions are going to remain competitive, they need to be able to have more flexibility to hire and fire faculty as student needs change.

Several state legislatures have mandated post...
  • Imaginary Numbers And The Microwave Oven
    535 words
    Imaginary numbers have had a great effect whether direct or indirect on the microwave oven. Although the concept has come out of left field, there is still a plausible explanation for their influence on the microwave oven. The fact remains that complex numbers have much less direct relevance to real-world quantities than other numbers do. An imaginary number could not be used as a measurement of how much water is in a bottle, or how far a kite has traveled, or how many fingers you have. There ar...

    Proportions of Numbers and Magnitudes In the Elements, Euclid devotes a book to magnitudes (Five), and he devotes a book to numbers (Seven). Both magnitudes and numbers represent quantity, however; magnitude is continuous while number is discrete. That is, numbers a recomposed of units which can be used to divide the whole, while magnitudes cannot be distinguished as parts from a whole, therefore; numbers can be more accurately compared because there is a standard unit representing one of someth...

    The History of Imaginary Numbers The origin of imaginary numbers dates back to the ancient Greeks. Although, at one time they believed that all numbers were rational numbers. Through the years mathematicians would not accept the fact that equations could have solutions that were less than zero. Those type of numbers are what we refer to today as negative numbers. Unfortunately, because of the lack of knowledge of negative numbers, many equations over the centuries seemed to be unsolvable. So, fr...

Have we ever thought of applying non-natural numbers in real life However funny it sounds, it may be possible (at least in this writing) to apply real numbers to the field or reality. It m...
