3 reasons why kids are bad at math

this is a short note that I have written for my website. I hope you enjoy reading it. I want to complete it then but for now I want to know what is your idea about it: do you know any other reason for this issue? do you have any suggestion to solve it?

Michael Atiyah 1929-2019


From: Mathematical Institute of Oxford University 

We are very sorry to hear of the death of Michael Atiyah. Michael was a giant of mathematics. He held many positions including Savilian Professor of Geometry here in Oxford, President of the Royal Society, Master of Trinity College, Cambridge, the founding Directorship of the Isaac Newton Institute and Chancellor of the University of Leicester. He was awarded the Fields Medal in 1966 and the Abel Prize in 2004.

Calculus, oh dear calculus!


Calculus has been always interesting for each of us in mathematics. No matter how advanced your field of research is, no matter how many years you have worked on different parts of mathematics, and even no matter how many times you have taught it to first semester students of science and engineering; again it is interesting and it has many different problems that you have never seen them before. Almost every mathematician has wrote a book or has had this idea to write a book on the subject. It may be the only part of mathematics with this amount of textbooks. Who can be so dare to claim that he could even review all of them in his lifetime?

Why Are There So Few Women Mathematicians?


How a corrosive culture keeps women out of leadership positions on math

JANE C. HU NOV 4, 2016 – Atlantic

As soon as mathematician Chad Topaz ripped the plastic off his copy of the American Mathematical Society’s magazine Notices, he was disappointed. Staring back at him from the cover were the faces of 13 of his fellow mathematicians—all of them men, and the majority of them white.  “Highlighting all this maleness and whiteness—what is the message that is being sent to the membership?” he wondered.

A Beautifully-Designed Edition of Euclid’s Elements from 1847 Gets Digitized: Explore the New Online, Interactive Reproduction


Article by: Josh Jones  from Open Culture

For two millennia, Euclid’s Elements, the foundational ancient work on geometry by the famed Greek mathematician, was required reading for educated people. (The “classically educated” read them in the original Greek.) The influence of the Elements in philosophy and mathematics cannot be overstated; so inspiring are Euclid’s proofs and axioms that Edna St. Vincent Millay wrote a sonnet in his honor. But over time, Euclid’s principles were streamlined into textbooks, and the Elements was read less and less.

Unraveling the Mathematics of Smell


Scientists have created a “map” of odor molecules, which could ultimately be used to predict new scent combinations 

The human nose finds it simple to distinguish the aroma of fresh coffee from the stink of rotten eggs, but the underlying biochemistry is complicated. Researchers have now created an olfactory “map”—a geometric model of how molecules combine to produce various scents. This map could inspire a way to predict how people might perceive certain odor combinations and help to drive the development of new fragrances, scientists say.
