Jonathan Matte has been teaching Mathematics for 20 years, the last 13 at Greens Farms Academy. Formerly the Mathematics Department Chair, he is currently the 12th Grade Dean and Coach of the GFA Math Team and the CT State Champion Quiz Team. A former Jeopardy! contestant, Jon’s outside-of-the classroom passions lie in the world of puzzles and games, both as a competitor (in the American Crossword Puzzle Tournament and the World Puzzle Championships, among others) and a creator (orchestrating the long-running GFA Puzzle Hunt and crafting puzzles that have made their way into GAMES Magazine).

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

I found this fascinating and exciting. I don’t get the negative disparaging comments. He helped me a non mathmatical person understand the creativity inherent in mathmatics. I guess some people just like to thinkIt is clever to engage in juvenile put downs. Thank you sir for giving us the gift of information and seeing the world through your unique experience. Don’t ever stop comminicating your excitement about this wonderous reality we share.

Einstein provou que a gravidade não existe, com a sua teoria de espaço- tempo. E que a massa é que provoca tal deformação. Qual a força que deforma o Espaço-Tempo. Seria uma espécie de gravidade negativa, que afasta o Espaço-Tempo ao invés de atrai-lo? Não pode haver causa sem um efeito. Tem que haver uma causa. Será que a massa faz parte do Espaço-Tempo? Fala-se e escreve-se muito sobre ondas gravitacionais. Como podem existir sem gravidade? Deveria ser chamadas de ondas de Espaço-Tempo, e não de gravitacionais. Hans

ALoonwolf says:

Everyone knows 1+1=2. Therefore everyone knows all mathematics. All they need to learn is the meaning of the symbols you use to represent things.

'Whatever you're going to learn, is already in you.'
That's one of best thoughts I ever came across. It generates so much excitement, inquisitiveness and confidence in learning!
