Sir Francis Galton, The Bean Machine / Galton Box. Device to demonstrate the central limit theorem, in particular that the normal distribution is approximate to the binomial distribution.

This poster aligns the words kids see in word problems with the Math operations they represent. It has helped my students translate word problems into equations that are easily solved.

Could do something similar for integrated science and defining the variables for power, velocity etc.

Giants of Science - Here is a chronological list of a few mathematicians and scientists whose towering achievements have helped shape the Science of their times and ours.

Arkani-Hamed, Nima is a... super good looking...wait, i mean... faculty member at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton and former professor of physics at Harvard University. A particle physics theorist working to relate theory to experiment, Nima seeks to explain the extreme weakness of gravity relative to other fundamental forces by postulating large extra dimensions and supersymmetry.

MATHEMATICIANS: Fern Hunt, Ph.D., Research Mathematician at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Mathematical Modeling Group, gives a brief lesson on the Fibonacci Numbers #CareerGirls

FREE cheat sheet for students. A great visual way to remember the difference between GCF and LCM.

KURT GODEL. Made the remarkable discovery (and proved it) that all consistent systems of axioms are incomplete. Take math, for instance. Godel's proof states that there are TRUE statements (theorems) about math, that math itself does not have the ability to prove true. I sure hope Riemann's Hypothesis is not undecidable.
