...COMBANITARICS
* A branch of mathematics concerning the study of finite or countable discrete structures. Aspects of combinatorics include counting the structures of a given kind and size (enumerative combinatorics), deciding when certain criteria can be met, and constructing and analyzing objects meeting the criteria (as in combinatorial designs andmatroid theory), finding "largest", "smallest", or "optimal" objects (extremal combinatorics and combinatorial...

...effective for students to improve their knowledge.
Today, students learn in the most and to the great extent if they will learn it through doing it by themselves. By introducing this type of teaching strategies, E-Module for Discrete Structures with biometrics is made to enhance the quality of education and instruction inside the classroom.

...Theory of Knowledge

“... what the ordinary person in the street regards as mathematics is usually nothing more than the operations of counting with perhaps a little geometry thrown in for good measure. This is why banking or accountancy or architecture is regarded as a suitable profession for someone who is ‘good at figures’. Indeed, this popular view of what mathematics is, and what is required to be good at it, is...

...Zoltan Dienes’ six-stage theory of learning mathematics
Stage 1.
Most people, when confronted with a situation which they are not sure how to handle, will engage in what is usually described as “trial and error” activity. What they are doing is to freely interact with the situation presented to them. In trying to solve a puzzle, most people will randomly try this and that and the other until some form of regularity in the situation begins to emerge, after which a more...

...Chapter 2: THE NATURE OF MATHEMATICSMathematics relies on both logic and creativity, and it is pursued both for a variety of practical purposes and for its intrinsic interest. For some people, and not only professional mathematicians, the essence of mathematics lies in its beauty and its intellectual challenge. For others, including many scientists and engineers, the chief value of mathematics is how it applies to their own work....

Biographical Sketch: Thales and Hypatia
Thales
While it is clear that Euclid definitely set a precedent for geometry and mathematics as a whole, he was not alone in his work, his endeavors, or his ideas. He certainly was not the first to come up with these theories or rules for geometry either. Before there was Euclid, there was Thales of Miletus. Thales, along with other mathematicians or “geometers” laid some of the foundation for Euclid to compile...

...History of mathematics
A proof from Euclid's Elements, widely considered the most influential textbook of all time.[1]
The area of study known as the history of mathematics is primarily an investigation into the origin of discoveries in mathematics and, to a lesser extent, an investigation into the mathematical methods and notation of the past.
Before the modern age and the worldwide spread of knowledge, written examples of new mathematical...

Set (mathematics)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
This article is about what mathematicians call "intuitive" or "naive" set theory. For a more detailed account, see Naive set theory. For a rigorous modern axiomatic treatment of sets, see Set theory.
