  • Wed, 09 Aug 2017 11:36:29 +0000: 'Robin Hood effects' on motivation in math - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    Students from families with little interest in math benefit more from a school intervention program that aims at increasing math motivation than do students whose parents regard math as important. A study indicates the intervention program has a "Robin Hood effect" which reduces the "motivational gap" between students from different family backgrounds because new information about the importance of math is made accessible to underprivileged students.
  • Fri, 04 Aug 2017 13:13:44 +0000: New model for bimolecular reactions in nanoreactors - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    Theoretical physicists have devised a mathematical model of two different molecules reacting within so called nanoreactors that act as catalysts. They gained surprising new insights as to what factors promote reactions and how to control and select them. The model is relevant for a wide range of research fields, from biophysics to energy materials.
  • Thu, 03 Aug 2017 14:31:50 +0000: Online assessment could improve math marks of deaf learners - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    Online mathematics assessment could help improve the mathematics performance of deaf and hard-of-hearing learners in South Africa, suggests a new report.
  • Wed, 26 Jul 2017 13:15:06 +0000: New 3-D technique uses water and robotics to reconstruct complex objects - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    'Using a robotic arm to immerse an object on an axis at various angles, and measuring the volume displacement of each dip, we combine each sequence and create a volumetric shape representation of an object,' says an expert.
  • Thu, 20 Jul 2017 20:26:04 +0000: One step closer to halting the spread of Zika, Dengue, Chikungunya - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    A mathematical model can serve as a guide to make monthly predictions on when people are at greatest risk for contracting mosquito-borne viruses, such as dengue, Zika and chikungunya, due to climate conditions, scientists report.
