• “The mathematical sciences particularly exhibit order, symmetry, and limitation; and these are the greatest forms of the beautiful.” ~ Aristotle
• “The whole of arithmetic now appeared within the grasp of mechanism.” ~ Charles Babbage
• “For the things of this world cannot be made known without a knowledge of mathematics.” ~ Roger Bacon
• “In the fall of 1929 I made up my mind to try the experiment of abandoning all formal instruction in arithmetic below the seventh grade and concentrating on teaching the children to read, to reason, and to recite – my new Three R’s. And by reciting I did not mean giving back, verbatim, the words of the teacher or of the textbook. I meant speaking the English language.” ~ L. P. Benezet
• “LOTTERY: A tax on people who are bad at math.” ~ Ambrose Bierce
• “Can you do Division? Divide a loaf by a knife - what's the answer to that?” ~ Lewis Carroll
• “Although I am almost illiterate mathematically, I grasped very early in life that any one who can count to ten can count upward indefinitely if he is fool enough to do so.” ~ Robertson Davies
• “If there is a God, he's a great mathematician.” ~ Paul Dirac
• “Proof is an idol before whom the pure mathematician tortures himself.” ~ Arthur Stanley Eddington
• “ far as the laws of mathematics refer to reality, they are not certain; and as far as they are certain, they do not refer to reality.” ~ Albert Einstein
• “Do not worry about your difficulties in mathematics. I can assure you that mine are still greater.” ~ Albert Einstein
• “And the whole [is] greater than the part.” ~ Euclid
• “A prime number is one (which is) measured by a unit alone.” ~ Euclid
• “Mathematicians have tried in vain to this day to discover some order in the sequence of prime numbers, and we have reason to believe that it is a mystery into which the human mind will never penetrate.” ~ Leonhard Euler
• “Last Theorem - It is impossible to separate any power higher than the second into two like powers.” ~ Pierre de Fermat
• “Mathematics is the queen of sciences and arithmetic is the queen of mathematics.” ~ Carl Friedrich Gauss
• “The mathematics are distinguished by a particular privilege, that is, in the course of ages, they may always advance and can never recede.” ~ Edward Gibbon
• “Anyone who cannot cope with mathematics is not fully human. At best he is a tolerable subhuman who has learned to wear shoes, bathe, and not make messes in the house.” ~ Robert Heinlein
• “One cannot escape the feeling that these mathematical formulas have an independent existence and an intelligence of their own, that they are wiser than we are, wiser even than their discoverers... ” ~ Heinrich Hertz
• “Geometry is one and eternal shining in the mind of God.” ~ Johannes Kepler
• “Since geometry is co-eternal with the divine mind before the birth of things, God himself served as his own model in creating the world.” ~ Johannes Kepler
• “Music is the pleasure the human mind experiences from counting without being aware that it is counting.” ~ Gottfried Wilhelm Baron de Leibniz
• “Mathematics may be defined as the economy of counting. There is no problem in the whole of mathematics which cannot be solved by direct counting.” ~ Ernst Mach
• “Mathematics is the science which draws necessary conclusions.” ~ Benjamin Peirce
• “The highest form of pure thought is in mathematics.” ~ Plato
• “Number is the ruler of forms and ideas, and the cause of gods and daemons.” ~ Pythagoras
• “There is geometry in the humming of the strings, there is music in the spacing of the spheres.” ~ Pythagoras
• “I like mathematics because it is not human and has nothing particular to do with this planet or with the whole accidental universe - because like Spinoza's God, it won't love us in return.” ~ Bertrand Russell
• “In universities, mathematics is taught mainly to men who are going to teach mathematics to men who are going to teach mathematics to.... Sometimes, it is true, there is an escape from this treadmill. Archimedes used mathematics to kill Romans, Galileo to improve the Grand Duke of Tuscany's artillery, modern physicists (grown more ambitious) to exterminate the human race. It is usually on this account that the study of mathematics is commended to the general public as worthy of State support.” ~ Bertrand Russell
• “Mathematics, rightly viewed, possesses not only truth, but supreme beauty —a beauty cold and austere, like that of sculpture, without appeal to any part of our weaker nature, without the gorgeous trappings of painting or music, yet sublimely pure, and capable of a stern perfection such as only the greatest art can show. The true spirit of delight, the exaltation, the sense of being more than Man, which is the touchstone of the highest excellence, is to be found in mathematics as surely as poetry.” ~ Bertrand Russell
• “Physics is mathematical not because we know so much about the physical world, but because we know so little; it is only its mathematical properties that we can discover.” ~ Bertrand Russell
• “Arithmetic is numbers you squeeze from your head to your hand to your pencil to your paper till you get the answer.” ~ Carl Sandburg
• “Arithmetic is where numbers fly like pigeons in and out of your head.” ~ Carl Sandburg
• “Mathematics is the only good metaphysics.” ~ William Thomson, Lord Kelvin
• “I never did very well in math - I could never seem to persuade the teacher that I hadn't meant my answers literally.” ~ Calvin Trillin
• “We could use up two Eternities in learning all that is to be learned about our own world and the thousands of nations that have arisen and flourished and vanished from it. Mathematics alone would occupy me eight million years.” ~ Mark Twain
• “Let us grant that the pursuit of mathematics is a divine madness of the human spirit, a refuge from the goading urgency of contingent happenings.” ~ Alfred North Whitehead
• “With my full philosophical rucksack I can only climb slowly up the mountain of mathematics.” ~ Ludwig Wittgenstein
• “Trigonometry is a sine of the times.” ~ unknown

Algebra Basic Concepts - Gr 4-9
Poster Set

Algebra is a form of mathematics in which letters represent numbers. An Equation is an algebraic statement containing an unknown value whose value must be found; ie. X + 10 = 10, therefore X =10. A formula is a set of algebraic symbols which show a mathematical fact; ie. A = L x W or Area = Length x Width. ...

Algebra Basic Concepts poster set presents information about algebra terms and formulas, how to perform basic operations with integers, and how to solve linear equations; 4 posters, 4 reproducible activity sheets, and a teacher's guide. Gr 4-9

Systeme Metrique (The Metric System), Limited Edition
Systeme Metrique (The Metric System), Limited Edition

The metric system is a decimalized (10) system of measurement using base units:
• meter=length,
• gram=weight,
• liter=capacity.

The decimal system proposed in England by John Wilkins (1668) is thought to have been introduced to France by people like Benjamin Franklin. Eventually Louis XVI of France asking a group of genius' to develop a ‘unified, natural and universal’ system of measurement to replace the widely varying systems then in use. The system developed by the group, among them Lavoisier, was adopted by the revolutionary government of France.

Thomas Jefferson, the American ambassador to France during the American War of Independence, established the decimal system for the new United States currency system; he was unsuccessfully for the adoption of a decimal system of weights and measures.

Perspective is the technique of manipulating the the perceptual abilities of the human eye, and expectations of the human brain, to create illusions of 3 dimensions (height, width and depth) on a 2 dimensional (height and width) surface.
