## It’s A Math, Math World (Intro and Poll Results)

Welcome to the new math and stats blog titled, **It’s A Math, Math World**. I plan to bring you new and exciting news and views regarding the world of math and statistics at least once a week. I will bring you mostly (I hope) some original content from my years of experience as an undergraduate math student and as a graduate statistics student.

I recently posted a survey on th web which asked people what they would like a new math blog topic to be. The link to the results is:

Below is a link to the survey.

An overwhelming number wanted the topics to be

1) statistical applications and programming

2) clarification & analysis of common math issues

3) general topics such as preparation for a career in math/stats, educational topics, etc.

4) The write-in candidates requested my looking at counter-intuitive math findings, tutorials on newer concepts, and looking at modern applications and misuses of math/stats in modern life.

I wil try to touch on a few of these areas and see in which direction I proceed. Look for my first 2-part blog post regarding “Communication Skills and the Mathematical Sciences” in the next few days.

Looking forward to reading your blogs!

Thanks for the comment and continued interest, Carmine. I will talk with you soon.

I’d be interested in whether and why people think Calculus is important for undergraduates to study. Does this depend on their major? Should students be learning, say, probability and statistics instead, or in addition? Thanks for any insights you and your followers might offer.

I think that for Calculus, it should be necessary, especially if you are going to really study probability and statistics in detail. To really explore these topics, you need basic Calculus (integration and differentiation). I think probability and statistics should be studied across any major that will handle data such as math, engineering, marketing, comp science, social and natural sciences, etc. Every dicipline involved with data wants to analyze and explain/control variation in their data. Who is not handling data nowadays?

Just my 2 cents!

hey all, Keep up the good work. very informative, and love all the information provided. I love everything i have read so far

Pretty good post. I just stumbled upon your blog and wanted to say that I have really enjoyed reading your blog posts. Any way Ill be subscribing to your feed and I hope you post again soon. Angel

I dont really know what you talking about here. This cant be the only way to think about this can it? It appears like you understand a lot, so why not explore it more? Make it more accessible to everyone else who may not concur with you? Youd get a lot a lot more individuals behind this if you just stopped making common statements.
