  • Mon, 26 Oct 2020 13:54:11 +0000: Divide and conquer :A new formula to minimize 'mathemaphobia' - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    Maths - it's the subject some kids love to hate, yet despite its lack of popularity, mathematics is critical for a STEM-capable workforce and vital for current and future productivity. New research finds that boosting student confidence in maths, is pivotal to greater engagement with the subject.
  • Thu, 22 Oct 2020 18:45:49 +0000: How genetic variation gives rise to differences in mathematical ability - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    DNA variation in a gene called ROBO1 is associated with early anatomical differences in a brain region that plays a key role in quantity representation, potentially explaining how genetic variability might shape mathematical performance in children, according to a new study.
  • Wed, 21 Oct 2020 18:09:08 +0000: Novel method for measuring spatial dependencies turns less data into more data - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    Researcher makes 'little data' act big through, the application of mathematical techniques normally used for time-series, to spatial processes.
  • Wed, 21 Oct 2020 15:32:43 +0000: Mass screening method could slash COVID-19 testing costs, trial finds - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    Using a new mathematical approach to screen large groups for COVID-19 could be around 20 times cheaper than individual testing, a study suggests.
  • Mon, 19 Oct 2020 16:55:37 +0000: A new approach to artificial intelligence that builds in uncertainty - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    Artificial intelligence isn't perfect. In fact, it's only as good as the methods and data built into it. Researchers have detailed a new approach to artificial intelligence that builds uncertainty, error, physical laws, expert knowledge and missing data into its calculations and leads ultimately to much more trustworthy models.
