Learning by Watching

How do you use this thing?

I think everyone is aware that children learn by observation.  How many times have you settled in to watch TV only to have the toddler next to you change channels? or turn the TV off?  They did see you do it after all.

Recently, researchers have pushed this concept further and have found that children as young as 2 intuitively use mathematical concepts such as probability to help make sense of the world around them.  In a study at the University of Washington, toddlers could tell the difference between two different game winning strategies based on the success rate of those strategies.

For more information on how to work your TV remote, check with your toddler.

Spotlight on AMS

We're Just Doing Our Jobs

 . . . which, it appears, quite a few people appreciate since the Colorado School of Mines was voted #2 in the nation as part of the College Factual survey for the Top 10 Colleges for a Major in Math.  We've always known that Mines is a great place for math and now so does everyone else.  Our program is designed to teach our students how to approach complex problems in a way that is applicable for a job in engineering, mathematics, business, finance and other careers.  As reported in USA Today, our graduates earn an average starting salary of $54,000 and report a mid-career salary of $100,000.

Sounds like a good place to be!

For more information on the Dept. of Applied Mathematics and Statistics, stop by.  We'll gladly discuss the possibilities!
