What are the main considerations when designing a math system or library that can do symbolic computation on mobile devices? I’ve written several times about math apps on mobile devices but, inspired by a blog post by Ismael Ghalimi, I … Continue reading
The Business Analytics and Mathematical Sciences Department of the IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center invites applications for its 2013-2014 Herman Goldstine Memorial Postdoctoral Fellowship for research in mathematical and computer sciences. Areas of active research in the department include: … Continue reading
I’m on vacation this week and taking it easy, so I thought I would do a post that appealed both to gardeners and math afficionados. Here’s the problem we’re going to solve: Suppose you buy 100 feet of wire fencing. … Continue reading
I just received an inquiry from a reader who is looking for fellow teachers who are now using iPads in math classrooms for middle or high school. If you know of any, please comment here (or on reddit) and I’ll … Continue reading
Not many people know this, but I was briefly involved with artificial intelligence research in the early 1980′s. In fact, I had to miss my first wedding anniversary because I was at an AI conference in Austin, something I’m still … Continue reading
I had the honor of working for and with Dick Jenks for many years in IBM Research. With other computer scientists, he led the development of computer algebra systems like Scratchpad and AXIOM. I’m very pleased to be on the … Continue reading
Math apps for tablet devices like the iPad should teach you how to structure a problem and its solution so you become better organized and capable of learning more advanced topics. As I continue to ponder math software for tablet … Continue reading
As we reach the end of 2010 and so the end of the first calendar year for Apple’s iPad, I decided to look around one more time at the math software available for that tablet. I’ve previously done this in … Continue reading
From time to time I do a little survey of the math applications that have been made available for the iPad. I haven’t had time lately to really look through the full set of what has become available in the … Continue reading
Now that the iPad has been out for about 3 months and I have had mine for a bit longer than 2 months, I’m going to revisit math software on the iPad. I previously did a couple of blog entries … Continue reading
When students first start learning about fractions and decimals, they see that 1/2 = .5 1/3 = .3333333333… 1/4 = .25 1/5 = .2 1/6 = .1666666666… Some of the decimals are simple and others repeat, but evidently in a … Continue reading
Will issues around multitasking and the new restrictions on the use of dynamic languages stop the Apple iPad from being used as a serious device for mathematical and scientific software? Several days ago I did a blog post about how … Continue reading
Will the next generation of tablets lead to new and better user interfaces for mathematical software? Will this encourage the use of tablets in education? Back in the 80s and 90s I was a member of the Mathematical Sciences Department … Continue reading
