    Maths programs. (FREE) On the knoppix CD there are a few.

    I like bc - in a console type man bc to see the manual
    bc -l                  loads BC with trig functions
    scale=100         1000 dp's (default is 20)
    a(1)*4               PI

    Plus Magazine

    Plus is an internet magazine which aims to introduce readers to the beauty and the practical applications of mathematics. A lot of people don't have a very clear idea what "real" maths consists of, and often they don't realise how many things they take for granted only work because of a generous helping of it. Apparently, some people even have the idea that it's boring! Weird. Anyway, we hope that even if you're such a person now, you won't be after looking through one or two issues of Plus, and that you'll come back and read future issues as they come out.

    Plus provides feature articles, which describe applications of maths to real-world problems, games, and puzzles; reviews of popular maths books and events; a news section, showing how recent news stories were often based on some underlying piece of maths that never made it to the newspapers; a puzzle for you to sharpen your wits against; a lucky dip of mathematical curiosities; and opinions on various maths-related topics and news stories. We have a regular interview with someone in a maths-related career, showing the wide range of uses maths gets put to in the real world. And all past issues remain available online, which besides making for good browsing is, we hope, a useful resource for maths school students and teachers.

    I strongly recommend this site for anyone interested in maths and programming, which is probably a lot of people on this forum. It's a collection of maths problems that you will need to use a combination of maths and brute force number crunching to solve. There are 27 Irish people on it - let's keep the side up!

    Euler topic merged with Useful links thread.

    Maybe we could integrate this into boards.ie? I know they have done it over on www.thestudentroom.co.uk


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,109 ✭✭✭✭Pherekydes


    The powers that be are the ones to ask. Maybe start a feedback thread about it or try Hobbes, who's created lotsa stuff for boards.

    This is a link to the youtube account of the Massachusetts IT, they have some fantastic basic linear algebra lectures posted, definately the most comprehensive teaching of maths I've ever stumbled upon. If you go to their main page they have posted lectures from some other subjets too.

    If you want to use Math Overflow, check out their faq first. A few things it says include:

    Math Overflow is not for homework help. Try to make sure your question is of interest to at least one other mathematician ... the intended audience is professional mathematicians, mathematics graduate students, and advanced undergraduates ...
    Math Overflow is not a discussion forum ... Blogs and threaded discussion forums are a more appropriate place for discussions.

    I'm not entirely sure why you've bolded mathematician...
    Questions inevitably lead to discussion, I don't thing you'll disagree with that, and that's what happens in just about every topic there, just look at the replies to specific comments.

    He bolded mathematician as that part of his post is quoted verbatim from MathOverflow and it is bolded there.

    Here is a link to videos on topology somebody put up on youtube.
    Came across them here and it's a good place if you have any suggestions
    to put to the maker of them.
