Imagine a world where no one knew how to do math. If people just used computers for their calculations, what would happen when there was a new problem that required a specific calculator? If nobody knew how to do the math, there would be no one to make the calculator and then there would be no solution to the problem.
Lots of practice is one answer. When Pascal was asked 'how to become an expert mathematician', his answer was 'find an insoluble problem and attempt a solution.' Another solution would be to attempt to answer for yourself, some of the math questions in wikianswers.
It only has one solution.
Math is best learned through practice and application of mathematical processes or formulas to real-world problems. It is one thing to memorize a math problem with a known solution, but another thing to have to figure out a solution to a unique and original problem. Students will best gain an understanding for math through the latter, and will better retain this knowledge by practicing its application rather than by being asked to memorize problems.
He solved one of the most famous math problems for which no solution existed. The problem is called the Poincare conjecture. It comes from a mathematical field called topology. Unfortunately it is quite a complex problem even to describe, certainly to difficult for me.
No one has a favorite math problem, not even Justin Bieber.
A complex math problem is one that is hard to solve.
You do it wrong. With out order of operations, the same math problem could have several different answers. In math, there is only one answer.
One to one correspondence is the basis of all math. Counting and marking the number on a stick.
