A fun and useful page: Estimate Distance

What do you all think?

A page to help clear up any confusions people may have about Scalars Vectors and Matrices.

Corrections, suggestions please!

I decided to add a section on the worn logarithm book, and found that Simon Newcomb actually discovered that!

See my revised version (use refresh): First Digits Rule

Thanks Guys!

A new page, on "Benford's Law": First Digits Rule

What do you think?

Thanks!

Great, will add : and define a Universal Set for the Complement example.

Has anyone else seen I used for irrationals?

Good point, will amend.

A new page: Set Symbols

What do you guys think of it? Any mistakes?

Fine, thanks. Blue. Yes.

And you?

Thanks Ganesh, Bob, Bobby!

Funny! But a good point, it would be nice to have one for BODMAS and BEDMAS.

A new page: Math vs Maths ... and more

Good page? Any mistakes? Do you have your own thoughts on this?

And any more examples for the second half would be appreciated.

Hi Bob,

Thanks for that, I will look into how I might be able to repeat the tabs in this version.

I think imgur (or the like) is the best solution for image hosting at the moment.

Every so often we get people asking lottery type questions, so I thought I would make a page to try to help them understand how chance works etc.

Here is my draft: The Lottery

I would value your feedback, any mistakes you may find, and any suggestions for inclusions.

Thanks bobby ... yes and yes: ±√(2x^2+c) − x is what I get now.

And another in the Diff Eq series: Homogeneous Differential Equations

The main weakness in this page is no explanation of why they are "Homogeneous". I played with linking **f(zx,zy) = z^n f(x,y)** to **dy/dx=F(x/y)** form but failed. If anyone knows a user-friendly way of explaining why "Homogeneous" that would be nice.

Comments, suggestions and error checking welcome.

Les is going to make some questions (with worked answers) for the bottom of the page.

Makes sense to me, I will put ±, thanks.

Have made changes to the page Separation of Variables

Is it looking better now? Did I miss any of your points in the rewrite?

Continuing on with the series on Differential Equations: Solution of First Order Linear Differential Equations

Credit also goes to Les Bill Gates, a very capable mathematics teacher, for these pages.

I have been experimenting with a new way of formatting dy/dx etc, so if you notice any formatting issues could you screen print and post them so I can see (but try Refresh first).

I would value any feedback, ideas for improvement, and error checking!

Yes please do!
