Video Explanation


A Little Effort Makes All the Difference

Real mathematics is about inquiry, communication, connections, and visual ideas. We donít need students to calculate quickly in math. We need students who can ask good questions, map out pathways, reason about complex solutions, set up models and communicate in different forms - Jo Boaler, Professor of Mathematics Education, Stanford University

Using Dropbox

You will find that some of the resources are stored in my dropbox account, if you have a dropbox account which is free you can automatically sync the files.  If you click on the link you will see a blue button which says "Download," press the little down arrow after the word Download and select "add to my Dropbox" the shared folder will then appear in your Dropbox list. 

For me the motivation to become a mathematician was the sheer beauty of the ideas, structures, and new ways of looking at the world. A world without knowing about primes, symmetry and 4D geometry would be like never hearing Mozart, seeing Picasso, or experiencing Shakespeare. A world without maths would be impoverished politically, technologically, scientifically and culturally.
