"To clarify my comments, I do not literally repeat the definition 50 times consecutively, as in a mantra.
But at each relevant moment, I repeat the definition, perhaps stating it slightly different, perhaps encouraging the class to 'fill in the…"
"y is a function of x when:
for each allowed value of x, there is only one possible answer for y.
Repeat that about 50 times and I find that students have a pretty decent understanding. I say this when looking at tables of values to determine if…"
The objective of setting this group is to aggregate ideas and strategies for introducing a Mathematics concept in a classroom at all levels. I think right start would definitely help in making lesson easy to understand as well as interesting.
"What about the unit circle do you want your students to know? I have a project that I give my College Algebra students which involves using the unit circle to find the roots of unity of various degrees (for example, finding all the cube roots of 1,…"
"Yes, I am using the Wolfram Alpha widget on my course pages (in our LMS), but I don't know if my students are really using it.
I don't know why though. I remember when I was a student that I would always want to check my answers. However,…"
"Thanks again for checking the buttons. I am using button tags rather than input tags, so that I could place images on the buttons. So I'm wondering if iPhone doesn't like images in buttons either or perhaps it doesn't like button tags…"
"Thanks for bringing this to my attention. The links don't work, but do the buttons that are showing still insert text in the text area? I do not own an iPhone and am not too familiar with it. What is the browser on the iPhone? Is it not Safari?…"
"Could be a problem with the JS on the iPhone OS. If I tap and hold one of the links, I get a JS popup with options to Open or Cancel. The action of Cancel is obvious, but if I tap Open, I'd expect the action to be carried out (to display other…"
"Dylan, the other one was one that I sent from my laptop and retrieved on the iPhone. This one I created on the iPhone, and noticed the links don't work -- "Display Calculus Buttons", "Display Other Buttons", and…"
"Wow, thanks Bob for checking it out and posting the nice screenshot of your iPhone. It looks nice on there. I apologize for us getting off on the wrong foot. I'm not sure how much demand there is for displaying math on twitter, but it's…"
Wish no longer! All you have to do to view math in your tweets is use TweetMath and enclose your LaTeX between $: and :$. For example, $:x^2:$. Here are some screenshots: And the result: At the moment, only TweetMath will render math in tweets. TweetMath is a web-based twitter client and is really just a slight modification of the already popular opensource twitter client dabr. dabr was designed to be especially mobile friendly.

Welcome to Mathematics 24x7. The purpose of this network is to just talk about all possibilities in Mathematics .There are people who love this subject and at the same time there are ones who are struggling for it.
Let us join our hands and look for all possibilities to make it interesting for everybody.
Thanks for joining this network.
