  • Mon, 20 Nov 2017 19:15:07 +0000: Survey taps students' motivation in STEM - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    Researchers are learning more about undergraduates' experience in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) classes and sharing a set of survey questions that will help researchers and educators at other universities do the same.
  • Fri, 17 Nov 2017 19:17:13 +0000: Mathematician's study of 'swarmalators' could direct future science - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    How does the Japanese tree frog figure into the latest work of a noted mathematician? As it turns out, quite prominently. Researchers used the curious mating ritual of male Japanese tree frogs as inspiration for their exploration of 'swarmalators' -- their term for systems in which both synchronization and swarming occur together.
  • Wed, 15 Nov 2017 20:36:40 +0000: What is the computational power of the universe? - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    Can a close look at the universe give us solutions to problems too difficult for a computer -- even if we built a computer larger than a planet? Physicist Stephen Jordan reflects on this question in a new NIST video, along with a scientific paper that considers one particular tough problem the universe might answer.
  • Mon, 13 Nov 2017 21:29:20 +0000: Using a mathematical lens to look at disease as a whole body problem - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    A novel computational method allows researchers to parse how multiple organs contribute to a disease over time, giving a more holistic view of disease and potentially revealing new avenues for intervention.
  • Fri, 10 Nov 2017 21:40:20 +0000: Engaging children in math at home equals a boost in more than just math skills - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    Preschool children who engage in math activities at home with their parents not only improve their math skills, but also their general vocabulary, according to research from Purdue University.
