  • Mon, 07 Jun 2021 20:11:49 +0000: Lack of math education negatively affects adolescent brain and cognitive development - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    Adolescents who stopped studying math showed a reduction in a critical brain chemical for brain development. This reduction in brain chemical was found in a key brain area that supports math, memory, learning, reasoning and problem solving.
  • Mon, 07 Jun 2021 12:46:36 +0000: Applying mathematics takes 'friendship paradox' beyond averages - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    In network science, the famous 'friendship paradox' describes why your friends are (on average) more popular, richer, and more attractive than you are. But a slightly more nuanced picture emerges when we apply mathematics to real-world data.
  • Fri, 04 Jun 2021 17:54:42 +0000: Early warning system for COVID-19 gets faster through wastewater detection and tracing - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    A new research paper builds on previous research of COVID-19 testing in municipal sewer systems and subsequent tracing the virus back to the source by more accurately modelling a system's treelike network of one-way pipes and manholes, and by speeding up the detection/tracing process through automatic sensors installed in specific manholes, chosen according to an easier-to-use algorithm.
  • Tue, 01 Jun 2021 17:57:33 +0000: Turbulence in interstellar gas clouds reveals multi-fractal structures - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    Astronomers describe the complex structure of the interstellar medium using a new mathematical method. The dispersion of interstellar turbulence in gas clouds before star formation unfolds in a cosmically small space.
  • Fri, 28 May 2021 21:17:55 +0000: Candy-like models used to make STEM accessible to visually impaired students - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    A breakthrough study aims to make science more accessible to people who are blind or visually impaired through small, candy-like models.
