In this paper, we present the first in-depth study on the distributions of mathematical notation in two large scientific corpora: the open access arXiv (2.5B mathematical objects) and the mathematical ... Mathematical notation, i.e., the writing system used to communicate concepts in mathematics, encodes valuable information for a variety of information search and retrieval systems. ... Hereafter, we define these components as Mathematical Objects of Interest (MOIs)  . The importance of math objects is a somewhat imprecise description and thus difficult to measure. ...arXiv:2002.02712v1 fatcat:x6ulzyupzbexxk3xha7uolcyme
Following the study of the Hindu- Arabic notation, the children were led to consideration of notations using bases other than 10. ... To enlarge somewhat on one of these topics, the following explanatory state- ment is offered: In an attempt to interpret our decimal notation in a meaningful way, study was begun by analyzing place value ...
A number of previous researchers indicated that students' mathematics interest still low because most of them have perceived that mathematics is very difficult, boring, not very practical, and have many ... The c onclusion of this literature study is the Concrete-Pictorial-Abstract approach can be used as an alternative to improve students' mathematics interest. ... Some aspects of students interest that are, a sense of excitement, interest in learning, show concern when studying and engagement in learning: a) Students with a high mathematics learning interest will ...doi:10.1088/1742-6596/895/1/012072 fatcat:57zk7uejirbbvbpt5srybtt2oe
Mathematical platonism posits that all of mathematics resides in a realm of abstract objects that is separate from the sensible world. ... His interests include all areas of mathematics and its history. He writes an occasional mathematics column in The Irish Times and has recently published a book of articles entitled That's Maths. ...doi:10.33232/bims.0079.87.91 fatcat:pwfj7djj35azbh6q6lpksewgyi

A new formula for pi Perhaps one of the most interesting of the recent computer-discovered mathematical facts is what is now known as the "BBP" formula for π = 3.14159 . . .: π = ∞ k=0 1 16 k 4 8k + 1 ... Wolfram's entry on "History of experimental mathematics" (pg. 899) contains a number of interesting insights on the practice of using computers as exploratory tools in mathematics. 2. ...doi:10.1007/978-3-642-35482-3_6 fatcat:fo7mhvpynjczleq52vs2oukpba
Nearly two decades ago he decided to combine his two main interests, Mathematics and History, in the study of Medieval Arabic mathematics. ... Physical Sciences -PREMODERN POLYNOMIALS Oaks discovered that algebraists before Viète conceived of the objects of their study, that is monomials, polynomials, and equations, differently than we do today ...doi:10.32907/ro-106-3841 fatcat:da24yxfnnjaanlshqot3knnewm
So the great ideal of Plato and Leibniz, the ideal of Mathematics as the essence of all knowledge, might at last be attained. ... Mathematics is the key for the understanding of the whole Universe, unifying all human thinking, from Sciences to Philosophy and Metaphysics. ... At present, given this definition of a p-structure as a precise mathematical object,mathematical research, I believe, will be less concerned with the study of a given pstructure or even of a given functor ...doi:10.5281/zenodo.3930890 fatcat:snljdanvqrccpcexdo3mi5lq4q
During this course they are taught to measure and weigh (incidentally learning to realize the advantages of the decimal notation), to determine the surfaces and volumes of actual objects, to determine ... Laboratory work in Mathematics. Many schools now arrange that boys of 13-15 shall take, as part of their mathematics, a course of experi- mental work in the laboratory. ...
A mathematician is often surprised by the fruitfulness and unity of the mathematical world. One designs objects and spaces and worlds and then discovers that they are just like predecessor objects. ... What is needed is a close study of what mathematicians do. ...doi:10.1016/0001-8708(87)90012-0 fatcat:lkjvz37fz5b3lboeb2lyj4myuu
