- Tue, 10 Jul 2018 22:53:59 +0000: Challenging the conventional wisdom on calculus - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
Contrary to widely-held opinion, taking high school calculus isn't necessary for success later in college calculus -- what's more important is mastering the prerequisites, algebra, geometry, and trigonometry -- that lead to calculus. That's according to a study of more than 6,000 college freshmen at 133 colleges.

Researchers are using stigmergy, a biological phenomenon that has been used to explain everything from the behavior of termites and beavers to the popularity of Wikipedia, to build new problem-solving autonomous robots.
- Thu, 21 Jun 2018 16:18:57 +0000: Engineering bacteria to exhibit stochastic Turing patterns - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
A new study has brought science one step closer to a molecular-level understanding of how patterns form in living tissue. The researchers engineered bacteria that, when incubated and grown, exhibited stochastic Turing patterns: a 'lawn' of synthesized bacteria in a petri dish fluoresced an irregular pattern of red polka dots on a field of green.
