## Math Can Be Fun

It's fun to try and figure out a problem in life. Math gives us the opportunity to use our minds to use reasoning and come up with solutions.

Many of the Links shown on the left really make math a game. Math games can be a fun way to have fun and expand your mind.

The brain is really interesting the way it can learn as you challenge it with things that are new and unusual. The brain will change and will physically change as you learn. It seems impossible, but the more you challenge your mind it will expand and you can have fun expanding your ability to think. It's that easy, and it's fun too.

## It's fun to work with shapes, fractions, and percentages

Figuring out the different shapes can be interesting and even fun. A triangle seems so simple but to find the sides and angles is interesting. Formulas seem difficult until you see it's not that hard. Understanding formulas is the key to sucess for math.

Geometry is unique and interesting in so many ways. The shapes and formalas to figure the math to match the shapes is exciting. A theorem was discovered in the days of the Greeks. Pythagorean math was way ahead of it's time. But that was thousands of years ago. The Egyptians must have had a great knowledge of math to build their amazing pymarids. They even calulated the star positions in the nights sky and mirrored the heavens in the position of their pyramids on earth (Giza - the Orions Belt).

The interesting thing about math is that it was understood by the ancient people of the world. Even in Meso America (Mexico, Central America, and South America) there was a great understanding of math and how it worked. The calendar of the ancient people in Meso America was very accurate. Some say that their understanding of math, the calendar and the stars, surpassed any other civilization, even the ancient Egyptians.

Math is more than what you learn in your math class. It is an amazing expanse of scientific and world thought. Some say that eveything can be proven matematically. That remains to be seen.

This site is primarily for the novice and elementary student. But advanced math on the internet is also easy to find in a goodle search. Tha Pythagorean Theorem is an interesting search. Also a search: "math facts" is good. Search: general subjects as: geometry, algebra, trigonometry and calculus.

The Greek scientists and mathemeticians had a lot to say about many subjects.

In England Sir Isaac Newton in the 1700s invented calculus (advanced math). He explained how the planets went around the sun when visited by Edmond Halley (who discovered Halley's Comet). As Newton was explaining how gavity worked in his own mathematical terms, he (Newton) created calculus! Later he wrote a great tretis on math in the greatest book every written about math called "Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica". Today it is still considered one of the greatest books ever written, not just on math, but on any scientific subject. Newton had a gift. And Einstein expanded the concepts of Newton to even further understanding about space and time.

Einstein's e=mc2 was just a theory until one day it created the atomic era in the world. Sometimes thinking about math can bring new insights of the world around us.

When Alexander the Great was conquering the world many years ago he would send information of his discoveries to Aristotle. Aristotle was had a mathmatical and scientific mind and was always searching for new and interesting things.

Today we are moving into worlds of knowledge that have been there for millions of years but we didn't see them until now.

With the power of the micron microscope and the hubble space telescope was can se so near and so far that our ancient relatives would be so surprised. Our knowledge base has never been at such a fever pitch for understanding math, science, and whatever we are researching. Even the DNA has been uncovered. What next.

You might be that person that is finding a solution through mach, science, and logic that can open the door to a new tomorrow.

Have a great time with this web page
