  • Wed, 08 Apr 2020 22:47:26 +0000: STEM students learn as well online as in classrooms - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    Students learned just as much in online STEM college courses as they did in traditional classroom settings, and at a fraction of the cost, according to a first-of-its-kind study.
  • Mon, 06 Apr 2020 15:07:19 +0000: Researchers hope to improve future epidemic predictions - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    As the world grapples with the COVID-19 pandemic, a new mathematical model could offer insights on how to improve future epidemic predictions based on how information mutates as it is transmitted from person to person and group to group.
  • Wed, 25 Mar 2020 16:08:37 +0000: How to break new records in the 200 meters - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    Usain Bolt's 200m record has not been beaten for ten years and Florence Griffith Joyner's for more than thirty years. And what about if the secret behind beating records was to use mathematics? Thanks to a mathematical model, researchers have proved that the geometry of athletic tracks could be optimized to improve records. They recommend to build shorter straights and larger radii in the future.
  • Wed, 25 Mar 2020 15:08:55 +0000: New mathematical model can more effectively track epidemics - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    As COVID-19 spreads worldwide, leaders are relying on mathematical models to make public health and economic decisions. A new model improves tracking of epidemics by accounting for mutations in diseases. Now, the researchers are working to apply their model to allow leaders to evaluate the effects of countermeasures to epidemics before they deploy them.
  • Wed, 18 Mar 2020 18:36:58 +0000: Mathematicians develop new theory to explain real-world randomness - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    Brownian motion describes the random movement of particles in fluids, however, this revolutionary model only works when a fluid is static, or at equilibrium. In real-life, fluids often contain particles that move by themselves, which can cause stirring in the fluid, driving it away from equilibrium. Now researchers have presented a novel theory to explain observed particle movements in these dynamic environments.
