  • A Non-Euclidean Story or: How to Persist When Your Geometry Doesn’t

    • Authors: Rami Luisto
      Abstract: Too little mathematics has been written in prose. Thus we prove here, via a fantasy novellette, that a locally L-bilipschitz mapping f : X → Y between uniformly Ahlfors q-regular, complete and locally compact path-metric spaces X and Y is an L-bilipschitz map when Y is simply connected. The motivation for such a result arises from studying the asymptotic values of BLD-mappings with an empty branch set.As far as the author is aware, the result is new, even though it would not be hard for specialists in the field to prove. The proof is essentially a modest extension of the ideas in [L17] in a more general setting when the branch set is empty.

    • Abstract: A Fibonacci poem follows the Fibonacci sequence to any length in its count of syllables per line, or words per line, or lines per stanza, or any other countable thing connected with the poem. A Fib is a special case of Fibonacci poem, a poem of 6 lines whose syllable line count follows the first 6 numbers of the Fibonacci sequence: 1; 1; 2; 3; 5; 8. The present collection of Fibs arose out of the Bridges poetry community in response to the Bridges organization’s efforts to make the Bridges 2021 conference more interactive.

  • Book Review: Reckonings: Numerals, Cognition, and History by Stephen
           Chrisomalis

    • Authors: Milton Rosa et al.
      Abstract: This review of Reckonings shares our thoughts on the diverse insights presented by Stephen Chrisomalis’s version of the history of numerical notation. Chrisomalis suggests that members of distinct cultural groups write numbers as an active choice in accordance with their own sociocultural contexts, which reflect the influences of historical, cognitive, social, economic, political, environmental, and cultural factors. This book integrates comparative, cognitive, and evolutionary understandings on numerical cognition with historical and linguistic evidence on the use and transformation of numeral systems through the historical advancement of numeracy. Chrisomalis offers an interesting historical perspective on numbers that builds upon three main themes: numerals, cognition, and history. Reckonings can inspire us to view the concept and constructs of numeracy through a historical and sociocultural lens.

  • Mathematics for the Masses: Door-to-Door Missionaries of Math and
           Twelve-Step Recovery Programs

    • Authors: Daniel S. Helman
      Abstract: Conversion of strangers, or proselytizing, is a feature of a range of groups for religious, organizational and other aims. In twelve-step recovery programs, such as Alcoholics Anonymous, belief in a higher power is a requirement for working the steps to recovery. People are encouraged to find a higher power of their own understanding. This paper presents a model for using mathematics as a higher power, and shows how recovery works with mathematics in that role instead of a more traditional higher power such as God. A contemplative definition of math is given along with a description of a three-categoried epistemology: mathematics, science, and the personal. This epistemology is shown to be sufficient to work the Twelve Steps, with mathematics as a higher power. Proselytizing is not required.

  • An Urgent Plea for More Graduate Programs in Statistics Education

    • Authors: David Eli Drew et al.
      Abstract: Lately, much has been written about the importance of amplifying statistics-related content in the K-12 curricula. This can be viewed in parallel or as an addendum to the existing mathematics curricula in the United States. Nevertheless, a key component of this debate is the lack of robust and cutting-edge academic programs in statistics education. In this piece, we emphasize the urgent need for investing in creating strong statistics education programs, which would significantly contribute to nurturing quantitative literacy as well as preparing a more informed citizenry in the 21st century.

  • Decisions, Decisions: How Should The Votes Be Counted'

    • Authors: Michael J. Caulfield
      Abstract: It is a simple matter for the members of a group to decide among two options. When there are three or more options among which to choose, the situation is much more complicated. This is precisely what faces the electorate each time there are more than two candidates running for a single office. And while there is debate over which voting method should be used, there is wide agreement over the method that should not be used: plurality, the most common approach taken in the United States. This article presents a simple classroom activity which provides students the opportunity to explore this issue in the context of a group of friends deciding which movie to watch. The methods of plurality, Borda count, approval, Condorcet, and Instant Runoff are discussed, along with advantages and disadvantages of each. All theoretical discussions are illustrated with voting data collected from fifty-eight students; an accompanying spreadsheet contains the data and the tabulations corresponding to each method.

  • A Cognitive View of "Pandemic Meditation" (A Mathematical Visual
           Poem)

    • Authors: Kazmier Maslanka
      Abstract: Mathematical visual poetry is a poetic genre whereby metaphorical expressions are created using mathematical structures. Within the structure, the poetics are understood by the cross-mapping of numerous conceptual domains including visual, lexical, and mathematical. Here I focus on one particular mathematical visual poetic structure: what I call a Similar Triangles Poem or Proportional Poem. To illustrate the ideas discussed, I present "Pandemic Meditations," a mathematical visual poem; in particular I discuss how this mathematical poem uses the mechanisms of poetic metaphor in the context of the embodied mind. The intent of this paper is not to explain "Pandemic Meditation," for explanations of poetry serve only to kill it. Instead, the intent here is to give the reader the tools to access similar triangles poems in general, and this expression in particular, and to show how it functions within the definitions of poetic metaphor. This paper can be used as a template to study all similar triangles visual poems, and more generally, as a source to study visual poetry.

  • Twisting the Cube: Art-Inspired Mathematical Explorations

    • Authors: Lingguo Bu
      Abstract: A cube can be twisted in a playful manner for visual and algebraic insights. The twisting process and the resulting ruled surfaces can be demonstrated using 3D modeling tools (e.g., GeoGebra® and Autodesk Fusion 360®) or elastic cords on a 3D-printable scaffold. The twisted cube is aesthetically appealing, posing interesting questions that are worthwhile at multiple levels. Algebraically, the volume of the twisted cube is shown to be two-thirds of the reference cube. The twisted faces are parts of hyperbolic paraboloids, whose implicit and parametric equations can be established from diverse perspectives in support of further dynamic explorations and discussions about the surface area.

      Abstract: In 2009, a literature scholar, Melanie Bayley, proposed that Lewis Carroll's famous books about Alice visiting the magical and illogical Wonderland were attempts to mock and critique the modern mathematics of the day. In this short paper, I aim to support Bayley's thesis and expound upon Carroll's artful use of symbolism to attack excessive use of symbolism in mathematics.

  • The Nature of Numbers: Real Computing

    • Authors: Bradley J. Lucier
      Abstract: While studying the computable real numbers as a professional mathematician, I came to see the computable reals, and not the real numbers as usually presented in undergraduate real analysis classes, as the natural culmination of my evolving understanding of numbers as a schoolchild. This paper attempts to trace and explain that evolution. The first part recounts the nature of numbers as they were presented to us grade-school children. In particular, the introduction of square roots induced a step change in my understanding of numbers. Another incident gave me insight into the brilliance of Alan Turing in his paper introducing both the computable real numbers and his famous ``Turing machine''. The final part of this paper describes the computable real numbers in enough detail to supplement the usual undergraduate real analysis class. An appendix presents programs that implement the examples in the text.

      Abstract: In this piece I propose a perspective shift, from a simplified view of mathematics story problems to a more academically rigorous perspective that integrates mathematical proficiency and language practices crucial for educating bilingual students. The data presented in this article provide a window into what preparing bilingual pre-service teachers to teach mathematics might involve. I discuss issues that arise in the context of preparing Spanish-English bilingual pre-service teachers in a way that can inform their practice in linguistically and culturally diverse classrooms.

  • An Amends Letter From a Recovering Mean Professor

    • Authors: Feryal Alayont
      Abstract: The following is an amends letter written by a recovering professor enrolled in a twelve-step program for mean professors. The letter is directed to current and past students who have been hurt by the insensitive behavior of the professor in response to the students' mathematical anxiety and other emotional defenses in their learning. As common in twelve-step programs, the purpose of an amends letter is for the recovering person to clearly identify their hurtful actions and the effects on their victims, and to take responsibility for them. By sharing this letter openly, the professor, identified by their twelve-step program name only, hopes to reach as many as possible of their students. They also hope that other professors will be encouraged to look at their own behavior in the classroom and make positive changes in their own behavior to provide a more psychologically safe classroom environment to their students.

  • Lessons Learned from the Disorder of Operations

    • Authors: Egan J. Chernoff
      Abstract: The purpose of this article, in general, is to explore certain possible outcomes associated with an underaged gambler attempting to collect his rightful winnings. More specifically, this article is a thought experiment investigating the union of (1) skill testing questions, (2) the equation that recently broke/divided the internet, and (3) how different outcomes render different elements of the thought experiment moot. For example, when the final arbiter has total dominion over a particular outcome, the mathematics of a skill testing question is rendered moot. The article concludes with a discussion revealing how disorder of operations could be considered the teaching and learning of mathematics version of other famous controversial issues (e.g., gun control, animal rights, welfare, etc.) found in society.

  • In Search of Star Clusters: An Introduction to the K-Means Algorithm

    • Authors: Marcio Nascimento
      Abstract: This article is a gentle introduction to K-means, a mathematical technique of processing data for further classification. We begin with a brief historical introduction, where we find connections with Plato’s Timæus, von Linné’s binomial classification, and the star clustering concept of Mary Sommerville and collaborators. Artificial intelligence algorithms use K-means as a classification methodology to learn about data in a very accurate way, because it is a quantitative procedure based on similarities.

  • Navigating a Calculus Course During a Pandemic: A USMA Perspective

    • Authors: Shane K. Smith et al.
      Abstract: In this article we analyze publications written about different teaching modalities and evaluate how each applies to a calculus class during the on-going COVID-19 pandemic. We focus on the positives and negatives of teaching and learning in a virtual, classroom, or HyFlex environment. Although arguments could be made for each environment, especially given different institutional objectives, this work aims to explain why we eventually preferred teaching our Fall 2020 multivariable calculus course in a face-to-face classroom setting at the United States Military Academy at West Point. We also offer measures of performance to compare the current COVID-19 semester with previous semesters. The results support two major conclusions drawn from our decision to teach in-person under in a time constrained environment: learning modality matters in mathematics and this pandemic will influence student-teacher interaction for semesters to come.

  • On the Mathematics of Social Distancing

    • Authors: Robert Haas
      Abstract: Early in the COVID-19 pandemic, when spring began to make itself felt, photos showed New Yorkers enjoying the outdoors, while properly socially distanced, by sitting on the grass in a square lattice of circles. But the planners should have consulted a mathematician for the design, because significantly more people (over 15% more) could enjoy the same area safely if the circles were closer packed into a hexagonal lattice.

  • Teaching Preservice Teachers in the Time of COVID: What’s Worth
           Keeping'

    • Authors: Kathy Liu Sun et al.
      Abstract: As we begin to transition from online instruction to in-person, we (four mathematics teacher educators) reflect on how COVID-19 impacted our instruction and address the question: what will we take back to in-person instruction' This article includes our individual reflections and an analytical synthesis of them. Findings reveal that there were unanticipated ways that human connection and consideration arose from teaching online, much of which we want to maintain in some form when returning to brick and mortar classrooms. We conclude by highlighting the value and importance of reflection for our own well-being.

  • Mindfully Navigating the Wind and Water: Defining the Currents of
           Metaphors that Interfere with Excellence in Mathematics Education

    • Authors: Rob Blom et al.
      Abstract: We bring to the forefront of educational thought a specific attitude toward the COVID-19 crisis that harnesses the symbolism of wind and water to navigate the cultural storm interfering upon our mathematical and pedagogical craft. The purpose of our paper is to open up space for opportunities in mathematics education using integral mindfulness as the rudder to readjust our bearings. More specifically, through conceptual analyses and making explicit the currents of change, disorder, and technology, we can apply discernment to these metaphors that intersect our pedagogy to re-align efforts and attitudes toward an integrated (aperspectival) culture of mathematics education. Through shared responsibility during these tumultuous times, we can once again strive toward the pursuit of excellence in mathematics education.

  • Unmotivated, Depressed, Anxious: Impact of the COVID-19 Emergency
           Transition to Remote Learning on Undergraduates’ Math Anxiety

    • Authors: Melinda Lanius et al.
      Abstract: In summer 2020, we invited the 6761 undergraduate students who took a Spring 2020 math course at the University of Arizona to participate in a survey, with 13% responding. We asked about their experience with the emergency transition to remote learning and measured their math anxiety before and after the transition using the well-established Abbreviated Math Anxiety Scale(AMAS). “Unmotivated, depressed, anxious” are the words one undergraduate used to describe their emergency transition to remote learning. Our results indicate that limited access to quality technology and inadequate communication with an instructor were the two greatest predictors for an increase in math anxiety after the emergency transition to remote learning. These results may encourage instructors to foster community with their students, especially during emergency remote learning.

  • Nilpotents Leave No Trace: A Matrix Mystery for Pandemic Times

    • Authors: Eric L. Grinberg
      Abstract: Reopening a cold case, Inspector Echelon, high-ranking in the Row Operations Center, is searching for a lost linear map, known to be nilpotent. When a partially decomposed matrix is unearthed, he reconstructs its reduced form, finding it singular. But were its origins nilpotent'

  • Teiresias, Proportions, and Sexual Pleasure

    • Authors: Spyros Missiakoulis
      Abstract: In this short article, I claim that Teiresias, the blind prophet of Apollo, in order to answer the question of whether “in sexual intercourse the woman had a larger share of pleasure than the man did”, measured the abstract concept of sexual pleasure and acted as a present-day scholar. With the help of numerical, not geometrical, proportions, he ended up with the conclusion “a man enjoyed one-tenth of the pleasure and a woman nine-tenths”.

  • Happiness in Mathematics Education: The Experiences of Preservice
           Elementary Teachers

    • Authors: Jeffrey Pair et al.
      Abstract: In this paper, we discuss preservice elementary teachers (PSTs) self-report of their happiness or unhappiness. Several times throughout a mathematics content capstone course, PSTs responded to prompts in which they described times from their past schooling experiences or during the course in which they experienced happiness or unhappiness in learning mathematics. Through thematic analysis, we examined their common experiences related to happiness and their mathematics learning. We found that PSTs’ happiness is related to expectations of themselves, their teachers, their peers, and mathematics itself. The study illuminates PST beliefs about mathematics teaching, collaborative group work, and the nature of mathematical understanding.

  • Middle School Students Generating Mathematical Problems from a Real-life
           Situation

    • Authors: David Coffland et al.
      Abstract: In this study, we examined the effect of different presentation formats of a realistic situation on students’ mathematical problem-posing behavior. We divided thirty-six middle school students into two groups, gave them a pretest, and then showed them a realistic, problem-posing situation in Artifact or Video format. We used Silver’s core dimensions of creativity, namely fluency, flexibility, and originality, to measure participants’ problem-posing activity. The results for the fluency measures showed that the Artifact group wrote more questions than the Video group but the same number of mathematics problems. The Video group posed problems in more mathematical domains than the Artifact group. Overall our results indicate that mathematics instructors should align the presentation format with goals of the problem-posing exercise.

  • Makers Do Math! Legitimizing Informal Mathematical Practices Within Making
           Contexts

    • Authors: Amber Simpson et al.
      Abstract: In this paper, we argue that making activities within non-formal learning environments (e.g., museums, libraries) provide opportunities to engage youth in what we define as mathematical practices for making, everyday mathematical practices within the context of making activities. The mathematical practices identified from two non-formal school-based contexts highlighted three mathematical practices for making: informal measurement, spatial reasoning, and curiosity. These practices are identified in prior scholarship as being beneficial and foundational for the understanding of mathematical concepts. As educators and researchers turn to non-formal and informal contexts, with an eye toward understanding ways youth engage in the activity of making, descriptions of mathematical practices for making build upon prior everyday mathematical practices and open up a new landscape of inquiry.

  • Intersection Cographs and Aesthetics

    • Authors: Robert Haas
      Abstract: Cographs are complete graphs with colored lines (edges); in an intersection cograph, the points (vertices) and lines (edges) are labeled by sets, and the line between each pair of points is (or represents) their intersection. This article first presents the elementary theory of intersection cographs: 15 are possible on 4 points; constraints on the triangles and quadrilaterals; some forbidden configurations; and how, under suitable constraints, to generate the points from the lines alone. The mathematical theory is then applied to aesthetics, using set cographs to describe the experience of a person enjoying a picture (Mu Qi), poem (Dickinson), play (Shakespeare), or piece of music (Anna Magdalena Bach).
