Maryam Mirzakhani has become the first woman Fields medalist for drawing deep connections between topology, geometry and dynamical systems.

A Tenacious Explorer of Abstract Surfaces Maryam Mirzakhani’s monumental work draws deep connections between topology, geometry and dynamical systems. She is the first woman to win the highest honor in mathematics — the Fields Medal

The hypocycloid with n cusps is the curve traced out by a point on a circle rolling inside a circle whose radius is n times larger. The hypocycloid with 2 cusps is sort of strange: It’s just …

I would like to thank everyone for being loyal Calculus Humor supporters. I would like to get some feedback on the future of Calculus Humor. I first want to say that Calculus.

Proof: (1+2+3+….+n)^2 = 1^3+2^3+3^3+….+n^3. Explains this Image: (1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8)^2 = 1^3+2^3+3^3+4^3+5^3+6^3+7^3+8^3 S(square) = (1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8)x(1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8) = (1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8)^2 Also, S(square) = SUM of small squares = 1x1^2 + 2x(2^2) + 3x(3^2) + 4x(4^2)+…….+8x(8^2) = 1^3 + 2^3 + 3^3 + 4^3 + 5^3 + 6^3 + 7^3 + 8^3

Proof: = Explains this Image: = S(square) = = Also, S(square) = SUM of small squares = + + + = + + + + + + +

Your kids don& like math? Maybe it& because math suffers from a bit of branding problem. That& where Hydrogene (previously on Neatorama) stepped in with this gorgeous set of minimalist posters of great mathematicians.

“ A smooth straight-line ride is not possible on triangular wheels: its wedges would cut into the ground. ”

It turns out smooth straight-line ride on triangular wheels is not possible. Wedges cut into ground.

Pythagoras proof from circle. Inscribed triangle formed by semicircle is a right triangle. Similar triangles are formed having angles which are complementary.

Since I'm not that good at (as I like to call it) 'die-hard-mathematics', I've always liked concepts like the golden ratio or the dragon curve, which are easy to understand and explain, but are
