## New ActivityThe latest activity to be updated on this site is called "Two-Step Percentages" (An exercise in which each problem requires two percentage calculations to find the solution.). So far this activity has been accessed 49 times and 4 people have earned a Transum Trophy for completing it. Learning about Two-Step Percentages in maths is important for pupils as it helps develop their critical thinking skills and problem-solving abilities. By requiring pupils to perform two separate percentage calculations to find a solution, this topic challenges their understanding of percentages and strengthens their mathematical skills. ## Recent News:## Higher-order interactions can remodel the landscape of complex systemsScientists report on how higher-order interactions can reshape a system at large -- even global -- scales. more... ## Language agents help large language models 'think' better and cheaperResearchers have devised an agent to help large language models 'think.' more... ## Recent study reveals reduced maths performance of adults with DyspraxiaDyspraxia, also known as Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD), can have a bigger impact on adult mathematical performance than previously thought, according to new research. more... ## Unveiling the math behind your calendarIn a world where organizing a simple meeting can feel like herding cats, new research reveals just how challenging finding a suitable meeting time becomes as the number of participants grows. The study dives into the mathematical complexities of this common task, offering new insights into why scheduling often feels so impossible. more... ## Big algebras: A dictionary of abstract mathSeveral fields of mathematics have developed in total isolation, using their own 'undecipherable' coded languages. Mathematicians now present 'big algebras,' a two-way mathematical 'dictionary' between symmetry, algebra, and geometry, that could strengthen the connection between the distant worlds of quantum physics and number theory. more... ## Mathematical proof: Five satellites needed for precise navigationWhat is the shortest route to the next stop or the agreed meeting point? Global positioning systems (GPS) have become a routine part of everyday life for most people. Until now, however, the minimum number of GPS satellites needed to determine the exact position of a mobile phone or other navigation device has remained a matter of conjecture. Researchers have now proved that a precise location can be determined in most cases with five or more satellites. At present, we can generally be sure of having contact to only four satellites. more... ## Mathematicians model a puzzling breakdown in cooperative behaviorA model developed by evolutionary mathematicians shows that as conditions for cooperation improve between two species, mutually beneficial behavior can unexpectedly become unbalanced. Cooperative behavior pools in one species, the other consumes the spoils. more... |
