As we discover more and more about nature, we find it that nature can be described mathematically. Mathematics plays a fundamental role in…
As a whole, my experience with mathematics has been a positive one. However, I came to this assumption largely based upon the good grades that I received and the positive feelings that came from seeing those good grades. I think the real reason I like math is because there is a right answer and you can always find out whether or not you reached that correct answer. I was affirmed time and time again for having reached correct answers. However, how deep of an understanding did I have of why the…
Students' perceptions and attitudes towards teaching and learning mathematics play an important role in mathematics education (McLeod, 1989). The students learning outcomes are greatly related to their beliefs, perceptions, perspectives, and attitudes towards mathematics (Pehkonen, 2003). Evaluating and assessing students' mathematical knowledge and performance must be made with the awareness, recognition, and realization of their beliefs and perceptions. Systematic inquiry into students'…
“Mathematics as an expression of the human mind reflects the active will, the contemplative reason, and the desire for aesthetic perfection. Its basic elements are logic and intuition, analysis and construction, generality and individuality.” By Richard Courant. Mathematics is not just a mere subject which only consists of numbers but a universal language. Mathematics can be defined as “the study of relationships among quantities, magnitudes and properties, and the logical operations by which…
My intention to study Mathematics stems from my appreciation of the complexity and variety of the different branches which the subject encompasses. In my academic career I have particularly enjoyed the challenge of Further Mathematics, as many skills and disciplines are collated to reach a final and satisfying conclusion. Continuing my studies at Newcastle would give me the opportunity to diversify my knowledge and continue forming a solid foundation for further problem solving in my career.…

Experience with the types of mathematics that precede Calculus II will allow me to not struggle overly with new material such as partial fractions. Calculus II builds on the derivatives and integrals of Calculus I and the knowledge of how to simplify complex functions from Algebra. An…
question/theme within the mathematics department that keeps reappearing time and time again is, "when am I ever going to use this" or "when is this going to be useful to me". Even I can say that the same thoughts had crossed my mind when studying surds in year seven. This can be a frustrating sticking point for both students and teachers alike. Consequently more questions have arisen from this such as: are certain topics too abstract? Has the application of mathematics been properly communicated…
Equals Mathematics Equals Mathematics is a program that focuses on foundational mathematics skills. It can be differentiated to apply to a wide variety of students including students with a range of disabilities and English language learners. This system provides a wide range of materials including books, manipulatives, worksheets, posters, and online activities. Target Audience This program is not specifically targeted toward a specific age range. Rather, it is targeted toward teaching…
Some people may think that since I am majoring in mathematics I’ve always been good at math. Surprisingly that is not my case, my interest in math was not developed until I my mid teenage years. Currently math is my favorite and strongest subject academically. In this paper I will share my history with math; throughout it, I will discuss my good and bad years of math, how my interest in math started, the persons who inspired me the most to follow this field and how math have made an impact in my…
