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.

Beyond the 4th Dimension -- What's it Like to be a Mathematician

Please join us at Thursday, Sept. 25, at 4:00pm in Coolbaugh Hall 219 as we welcome Professor Ian Sloan from the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia for his special presentation.  His talk will discuss a variety of examples of the 4th dimension and then dimensions beyond.  His non-technical talk will explore the paradox of real-world problems which tap into the unimaginable, higher dimension.
