Perhaps it is because we don't teach logic, that mathematics seems disjointed from reality for many students. I propose logic should be as elementary in education as arithmetic, and then used at higher levels to teach simple coding (not to make them computer scientists, but to teach them computers can be an omnitool to empower them), statistics, and reasoning in every other discipline
Would a call for DRM free Ebooks fall on deaf ears?
I have access to many many e-books through my University, but I can't really read them at my leisure. In order to read them I need to install a proprietary app that doesn't run on my Nook (E ink definitely wins out over a digital display). I would love to read books on say, neural networks or quantum computing while I go about my day. However, since I can't bring them with me, and I'm not busting out my laptop to read, it's not an option.
Congratulations to JAXA for pushing science a little farther today!
