Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online New research published in the journal Psychological Reports could change the way math is taught in the classroom. The traditional outlook on math is that it is a skill you are simply born with, but a team at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) in Trondheim says it is practice that makes perfect, rather than natural talent. Researchers tested the math skills of 70 Norwegian fifth graders with an average age of...

John P. Millis, PhD for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online In my 'Introduction to Astronomy' course, I am often faced with a challenge: Many of the theoretical models that we have created to explain the Universe around us are quite difficult to visualize. This is sometimes particularly difficult for those not studying in a scientific field, but I even find myself struggling under the weight of mathematical constructs where the connection to reality is opaque at best. Humans, in...

Algebra
2014-01-02 11:06:39

Algebra, from the Arabic al-jebr, meaning “reunion of broken parts”, is one of the wide-ranging parts of mathematics, combined with number theory, geometry, and analysis. Algebra can basically be considered as doing computations much like that of arithmetic with non-numerical mathematical objects. Initially, these objects were variables that represented either numbers that weren’t yet known or unspecified numbers, permitting one to state and prove properties that are true no matter...

Geometry
2014-01-02 10:21:51

Geometry is a branch of mathematics that is concerned with questions of shape, size, relative position of figures, and the properties of space. A mathematician who works in the geometry field is called a geometer. Geometry arose independently in numerous early cultures as a body of practical knowledge concerning areas, lengths, and volumes, with elements of a formal mathematical science emerging in the West as early as Thales. By the 3rd century BC, geometry was put into an axiomatic form by...

Applied Mathematics

Applied mathematics is a branch of mathematics that focuses on mathematical methods that are usually used in science, engineering, business, and industry. Therefore, “applied mathematics” is a mathematical science with specialized knowledge. The term “applied mathematics” also explains the professional specialty in which mathematicians work on practical problems; as a profession focused on practical problems, applied mathematics focuses on the formulation and study of mathematical...

Algorithm
2013-12-16 10:46:30

In mathematics and computer science, an algorithm is a step-by-step procedure for calculations. Algorithms are used for calculations, automated reasoning, and data processing. An algorithm is an effective technique expressed as a finite list of well-defined instructions for calculating a function. Starting from an initial state and an initial input, the instructions describe a computation that, when executed, proceeds through a finite number of well-defined successive states and eventually...

attercop
  • A spider.
  • Figuratively, a peevish, testy, ill-natured person.
'Attercop' comes from the Old English 'atorcoppe,' where 'atter' means 'poison, venom' and‎ 'cop' means 'spider.' 'Coppa' is a derivative of 'cop,' top, summit, round head, or 'copp,' cup, vessel, which refers to 'the supposed venomous properties of spiders,' says the OED. 'Copp' is still found in the word 'cobweb.'
