    Finding truth value of each propositional variable.

    Note: ^ represents and. V represents or ~ represents not T represents True F represents False My solution... I started by substituting T in all variables.... [p^(qVr)]^ ~r [T^(TVT)] ^ ~T (T^T) ^ F T^F F The answer is p = True q = True r = False

    Compute (1+x+x^2+x^3)^2

    This is a problem from Gelfand's Algebra. Needed to verify my solution. My solution to the problem above was the following. 1+2x+3x^2+4x^3+3x^4+2x^5+x^6 Thanks.

    Appreciate the input Choppy. :) I have always been told that it is easier to transition from certain fields then vice versa. Case in the point, I know a professor who teaches financial engineering at a reputed school. He said that for someone with a strong mathematics background who might have...

    Schools Research and Graduate School .

    Is it true that if you try getting into research with a certain faculty ( not your major ), they would rather choose their own over you? For example , would it be difficult for a mathematics major to get into biophysics research in undergrad? Would the biophysics or any other research ( insert...

    Interesting ideas for mathematics presentation

    Ah well! Today was the final day of the topic submission. I ended up choosing to do a presentation on Euler's identity, An in-depth analysis from a historical, mathematical and scientific perspective. The presentation will be held in late April.

    Interesting ideas for mathematics presentation

    I will be doing a presentation in the science symposium at my community college. The common theme is always topics from biology or chemistry but never from physics or mathematics.. I am a Math major and love pure mathematics, I am interested in presenting the great theorems of mathematics...

    Programs Proof based classes for biomathematics major?

    Thanks for the replies...I shall be taking proof based classes too. After all what's the point of being a math major without classes like real analysis, right?

    Programs Proof based classes for biomathematics major?

    Would proof based classes like real analysis, abstract algebra etc be helpful to a biomath major. Currently, I am a math major in a good community college, almost on the verge of transferring to a 4 year institution. My goal is eventually to get into med school and pursue radiation oncology but...

    Is the Math/Science Taught at MIT, Caltech, etc. Harder?

    OP, from your post it seems like at some point you would love to be a part of a top tier school and that certainly can be done. Not all community colleges are created equal. Some are known for their academic rigor and some academically, are like taking a walk in the park. Assuming that in your...

    Topics in General Chemistry 2

    In my previous post I have already mentioned what topics have a carryover from 1 to 2. As far as nomenclature goes it will be essential especially in acids and bases and also you might encounter problems sometimes where you are supposed to find the molar mass of a compound. You will given just...

    Topics in General Chemistry 2

    Well! Certainly expect to have a lot more math in general chemistry 2 than 1 but the math is very basic...algebra 1, and logarithms. There will be tons of equations. What separate champs from chumps is the intuitive understanding of the equations, variables and basic concepts pertaining the use...

    Is A- in Calculus 2 a bad grade?

    Well! First off I love Math with a passion and I get very excited doing it. That's exactly what happens to me when I see a test and I try to go fast due to the excitement, thus costing me points. Also sometimes the problem is simple enough but I overthink making it more complicated than it...

    I am kind of bummed today because I got my finals result for calculus 2 and ended up getting an A- .Truth to be told it was the best Math course I have taken so far and the professor was outstanding. Its just that I am always hanging in the 90-92 range not just for math but for physics and...

    Best Ways to Self Learn Math

    Dumplump! While you can have a strong opinion you don't have to use words like "garbage" etc because it is still trash talking, especially when done behind a persons back and behind the keyboard. Also remember that one man's food can be another man's poison. Even though you might have not...
