You should then get a quotient of 152.94blah blah blah (blah blah blah means more decimals, but 152.94 is pretty much 153, so that's what I did). So the average adult human weighs 153 pounds.... I also read that just the engine of the EMD 710 from General Motors weighs about 8 tons!!! P. S. I have no idea what a EMD 710 is, but it's some kind of train." - Andre, highlighted in the Pre-Algebra PoW's Latest Solution http://mathforum.org/pows/solution.htm?publication=4891 -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- SURVEY: TEACHERS' RESPONSES TO STUDENTS' MATHEMATICAL SOLUTIONS http://bit.ly/2l18zwK Researchers want to know: How do you respond to different students' work on the same math problems? -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- Now taking place: Math education conversation of the day "Thanks to both of you for hosting again and for getting us thinking about our work in new ways!" - Brian, tweeted to @MFAnnie and @maxmathforum during #elemmathchat https://twitter.com/MFAnnie/status/832424581235236864 -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- MATH4OFFICE https://math4office.com/ On Tuesday, an automated math recognition and correction engine for Microsoft Office had its first public beta release. Math4Office checks arithmetic expressions and calculations entered within normal text as you type. Fee versions for students and professionals, available to demo with a 30-day free trial, extend the add-in functionality across Microsoft Word, Outlook, and PowerPoint on Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 10. Have ideas for how to make this software even more intuitive?
