#### Macosxnerd101's Blog > Counting Subsets and the Binomial Theorem

Posted 06 July 2013

The Power Set on a finite set S, denoted P(S), has 2|S| elements. Similarly enough, Sum_{i}^{n} C(n, i) = 2n...

#### Macosxnerd101's Blog > The Importance of Multiplicative Functions

Posted 03 July 2013

I came across this thread today, where the OP was attempting to solve a problem regarding counting divisors. Here, the use of a multiplicative function provided means to optimize when counting divisors for larger numbers.

First, let's define two terms- multiplicative and completely multiplicative. A multiplicative function f...

#### Macosxnerd101's Blog > Which Math Course(s) Should I Take?

Posted 09 June 2013

There are a lot of threads asking about math courses to take, so I figured it was time to put together a blog entry on this. I'm making the assumption that you, the reader, are some sort of an IT or CS major, so I'm starting at Calculus and moving my way up. This isn't a complete or comprehensive list of math courses commonly available...

#### Macosxnerd101's Blog > Graph Theory Love- Four Color Theorem

Posted 03 September 2012

This semester, I am taking a class called Applied Combinatorics, which has a large Graph Theory component. Today, my professor was introducing planar graphs. We got sidetracked on the Four Color Theorem, which states that a planar graph requires no more than four distinct colors so that no adjacent faces have the same color. I have been working on...

St00pid geometry mess'n with the fundamental equations of quantum theory.
Also, again, make math art -> get rich and famous.

These people shouldn't touch our educational system. I do agree that perhaps Algebra could be taught a bit differently. High school geometry wasn't my thing, and I'd opt for a more college proof-writing class over it again. Getting rid of math as a requirement? That's ridiculous.

I just saw this comment! I see more people run from engineering than I do math. A lot of engineers actually switch into Math Ed, which is for people that want to teach high school math.

That's interesting! Sadly, Geometry and Topology aren't my fields (pun intended).

Other news - when you get bored with equations you can transition into art.

I saw that! That's really neat that mathematicians were able to bound the distance between pairs of primes.
