Calcea Johnson and Ne'Kiya Jackson have added four further novel proofs of the theorem that had also not been published before, and left clues for another five. Teen mathematicians Ne’Kiya Jackson (left) and Calcea Johnson (right) who have done what mathematics texts said was impossible, finding a noncircular trigonometric proof of Pythagoras Theorem. Image Credit: Calcea Johnson High school students Calcea Johnson and Ne'Kiya Jackson did something in 2023 that most mathematicians had thought impossible: They discovered a way to prove Pythagoras' theorem using trigonometry that did not depend on circular reasoning. Now, they have published their work in a...

String theory scientists studying the behavior of high energy particles say they have stumbled upon a mathematical “hack” that revealed a whole new way to represent the irrational number Pi. While the research is purely theoretical, the duo behind the Pi hack says this kind of theoretical work holds rewarding potential. The researchers also believe their work could lead to a number of potential breakthroughs in the future, similar to how theoretical breakthroughs made by physicists nearly a hundred years ago resulted in technological advancements decades later. AFTER 4,000 YEARS, PI IS STILL A MYSTERY Defined as the ratio of...

Supporting kids with math homework is a common afterschool activity. But beyond the basics, new curricula and teaching strategies are making it harder for parents to help and it's taking a serious toll on children's confidence and learning. In a study from the University of South Australia, researchers have found that mathematics homework can sometimes cause more harm than good. Exploring how homework policies and practices affect families, researchers found that mathematics homework could inadvertently affect a child when it often: was too difficult for a child to complete independently, and/or with the support of a parent required significant support...

I don’t have a mathematics background, but have done well in math generally, understand some of the concepts. I’ve been interested in this problem since seeing a YouTube video from the science channel Veritasium on the subject. After going over it for a time, I noticed some patterns in the numbers that are most divisible by 2. Here’s a summary of what I found, and I wonder how it fits into the picture. 1. Starting from 0: 3(0)+1=1. 2. Next, starting from 1: 3(1)+1=4. That’s the initial “4>2>1.” 3. Then, substitute 2: 3(2)+1=7. And 3: 3(3)+1=10. And 4: 3(4)+1=13. 4....

"This is the third coin of this type found in excavations in Jerusalem, and one of the few ever found in archeological excavations," said the researchers.During the Great Revolt against Rome, the Jews in Jerusalem minted bronze and silver coins. Most of the silver coins featured a goblet on one side, with ancient Hebrew script above it noting the year of the Revolt. Depending on its denomination, the coins also included an inscription around the border noting either, "Israel Shekel," "HalfShekel," or "QuarterShekel." The other side of these coins showcased a branch with three pomegranates, surrounded by an inscription in...

Actor Terrence Howard reportedly said it is "immoral for the United States government to charge taxes to the descendants of slaves" after being ordered to pay nearly $1 million in back taxes. According to a report from the Philadelphia Inquirer on Thursday, a federal judge in Philadelphia ordered the Academy Awardnominated actor to pay $903,115 in back taxes, penalties and interest. "For more than a year, the 54yearold star of the TV hit ‘Empire,’ whose last listed address was in Plymouth Meeting, rebuffed IRS efforts to collect $578,000 in income taxes it says he failed to pay between 2010 and...

The United States must focus on helping American children to develop an understanding, appreciation, and love for math.. The most recent results of the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) highlight a concerning trend for U.S. students in the field of math. In comparison to their counterparts in other industrialized nations, American students are falling behind. The rather sobering results revealed a 13point decline for U.S. students when compared to the 2018 exam. In stark contrast, 28 countries and economies managed to either maintain or improve their 2018 math scores, with countries such as Switzerland and Japan leading the way—and...

Democrats are constantly telling us how great public schools are and how much we must value school teachers. So what happens when a Democratcontrolled city has almost two dozen schools with zero students performing at grade level?FOX 45 News in Baltimore reports:23 Baltimore schools have zero students proficient in math, per state test resultsBaltimore City is facing a devastating reality as the latest round of state test scores are released.Project Baltimore analyzed the results and found a shocking number of Baltimore City schools where not a single student is doing math at grade level. “We’re not living up to our...

"Math is hard, let's go shopping!" When Mattel released a talking Barbie who offered that bit of teenage wisdom, public reaction was so furious they pulled her off the shelves. Mattel is still trying to recover from the PR disaster. I assume they fired the guy who came up with that little gem. Not that it mattered much. I have every confidence he's enjoying a new career, designing math programs for American public schools. What else can I think about programs that encourage children to "shop" for the correct way to multiply? That ask kids what "color" they think math...

Racial and ethnic disparities in advanced math and science skills occur far earlier in the U.S. than previously known. Our new study finds that 13% of white students and 16% of Asian students display advanced math skills by kindergarten. The contrasting percentage for both Black and Hispanic students is 4%. These disparities then continue to occur throughout elementary school. By fifth grade, 13% of white students and 22% of Asian students display advanced math skills. About 2% of Black students and 3% of Hispanic students do so. Similar disparities occur in advanced science skills. What explains these disparities? Factors that...

Lebron James’ I Promise School in Akron, Ohio is facing major backlash from Akron Public School Board members after it was reported that the school hasn’t had one student from its 8th grade class pass a state math test in over three years. Akron Public School board member Valerie McKitrick was shocked by the new revelation and stated “Not one? In three years?” after she was presented with data that showed not one single student in the school’s fall 8thgrade class couldnpass a Ohio stated math proficiency test. Keith LiechtyClifford who serves as Akron’s district director of school improvement went...

The Kansas Board of Regents is considering stripping specific university math requirements after it was found that a significant percentage of college freshmen fail algebra, NPR affiliate KCUR reported. The Regents, who oversee the system’s six public universities, are considering implementing the Math Pathways approach which matches students to a math course based on their major instead of mandating algebra for all incoming students. While many universities require that all freshmen pass algebra as a prerequisite for graduation, one in three Kansas students reportedly fail the course, which could delay a student’s graduation. Daniel Archer, vice president of academic affairs...

If someone proposes a solution to an "existential problem" that has no chance of success, should we be forced to take the problem seriously? If the climate alarmists truly believe there is a climate emergency, then they should be able to answer the first basic question about "the plan." Are the numbers in the plan even remotely achievable? Remember: based on their screeching, we have only twelve years before we all die from "manmade climate change." To answer that question, let's break part of the plan into the most basic math problem: can we replace 25%, 50%, or 75% of...

Christina Pushaw, Governor Ron DeSantis’s press secretary, is an extremely effective communicator. For example, on Saturday, Pushaw managed to cut through the smog of lies that Democrats use to claim that they’re not teaching Critical Race Theory (“CRT”) in America’s schools. She did this by publishing incredibly foul, racebased math homework that is on the curriculum in Missouri public schools. Every since conservative Americans discovered, mostly thanks to the Zoom classrooms that Fauci’s lockdowns forced on America’s schools, that their children are being taught Critical Race Theory precepts (Blacks are victims; Whites are evil), Democrats have been denying that CRT...

A concerned parent posted a picture of their third grader's common core math homework yesterday. Frustrated, they called the homework "ridiculous." Just how ridiculous? Third graders are now being taught how to multply single digit numbers using six steps. Common Core is the overcomplication of simple problems. So, how do you solve 7 times 5? You don't just solve it quickly in your head. You don't count by seven five times. Instead, you are supposed to break five into two smaller numbers. It doesn't explain why you don't break seven down, but students are supposed to instantly know that five...

Laurie Rubel, a professor of math education at New York’s Brooklyn College, does not appear to be fond of the discipline she teaches. In fact, she apparently believes math is inherently racist. She recently tweeted, “the idea that math (or data) is culturally neutral or in any way objective is a MYTH.” In a separate tweet she noted that math “reeks of white supremacist patriarchy” after stating, albeit incoherently, “along with the ‘of course math is neutral because 2 + 2 = 4 trope’ are the related (and creepy) ‘math is pure’ and ‘protect math.’” Appearing drunk on her own...

So I did a proof of the Collatz Conjecture, and am wondering if anybody here familiar with the process of getting it published. This place has a lot of experts, and if the proof holds, it would be news in itself. Proof is here: https://easyupload.io/8yx8a4
