Today, I want to talk about struggling with mathematics. I think the best way to do this is by reacting to something G.H. Hardy said. While doing some research on Hardy, I came across a blog by Maria Popova of Brain Pickings. I was overjoyed to see one of my favorite writers talk about my […]
I had the pleasure of visiting Bletchley Park this year. The home of the WWII code breakers. I got to see the work and legacy of one of my favorite mathematicians, Alan Turing. What I remember most about Alan Turing from my visit was his Teddy Bear. You see, as an adult Turing bought a […]
One of my favorite blogs to read is Life Though a Mathematician’s Eyes. I was fortunate when the author decided to do a collab with me! I am so honored! Below is my interview with the author. Bio: I am a professional mathematical concept disrupter who believes that the study of mathematics is like air […]
Today I want to focus on my recent trips to London. They represent some of the most significant moments of my life. I am grateful that I’ve had the means to visit other countries.
For the past few years, I’ve been working on research around writing a biography of G.H. Hardy. Hardy is a far cry from the socially awkward and shy man he appears as in anecdotes. When I look at his actions, his writing, his friendships… I can only think of him warmly.
I was sitting on my twin bed tucked away in the living room of my mother’s apartment. In my early thirties, I had a fight with my father. Abiding by his rules had pushed me too far. So I moved to Oregon to live with my mom. My family believed that I could only survive […]
Science gifts aren’t always easy to find. So, when you come across a shop that really gets it. You want to throw as much support them as possible. The following list features some of my favorite items that I have purchased over the years.
Some recent events triggered a depressive episode. For the past week, I’ve been feeling helpless and overwhelmed. I admit that I started losing some hope that things would improve. Luckily, I had a math dream! I think it was my brain’s way of cheering me up.
Update: I wanted to post a message here to let people know this isn’t a biography of Hardy. This is just my silly idea that he might be misunderstood. If you are interested in Hardy’s life & work check out this book. G.H. Hardy wasn’t always my favorite mathematician. My first love was Gauss. A […]
Recently, I’ve read some excellent articles that cover math anxiety. They have me reflecting on my own childhood. I remember this time vividly, due to the trauma I experienced. Even as an adult, it is difficult to leave the painful experiences behind.
I get really steamed when people tell me that I must be good at math because I love it so. This is not the case. If you had talked to any of my previous math teachers they would tell you different. I was always the slowest person in class to understand new concepts.
