I spent a full 20 minutes at this site on my first visit. I say first because I do intend to go back. Dr. Barnbaum has a way with words when it comes to explaining some of the many ways in which math and physics are intertwined. Her site also includes a section addressed toward math phobia. As a former math phobic myself, I really appreciate the insight which she provides. As a college student, I am finally learning that math is an integral part of our world. I wish that my teachers had taken the time to explain to me when I was younger the true importance of math, rather than just teaching me various formulas without explanation. My eyes are opening to the power of math and it's a wonderful discovery! This web page has certainly contributed to my understanding. Dr. Barnbaum includes a list of suggested reading materials, as well as math quotes. Great site!
