My section of the website on John Nash and on Game Theory satisfies the goals of exploring mathematical concepts in a more open-ended fashion, building bridges from mathematics to other topics, and working with others in a responsible and harmonious fashion. It covers information on Nash’s life, introduces us to his Nash Equilibrium, and discusses some of the applications and examples of game theory. The game theory discussed is not, however, limited to the ideas of Nash.

For my component of the website, there are explanations on the four probability properties, Pascal’s Wager, and the Bernoulli Trials. This project allows for exploring mathematical concepts in a more open-ended fashion, building bridges from mathematics to other topics, becoming more self-aware and reflective about learning, learning from mistakes, and working with others in a responsible and harmonious fashion. There are examples of the mathematicians' works and its relation to modern society, as well as biographies about Pascal and Bernoulli.

This piece should satisfy

4) Learning from your mistakes

5) Work with others in a responsible and harmonious fashion

 

I did the sections called Probability Laws, Chance Games and Math in Music with Vivien. Building this website was completely new to me and it took some time to learn how to upload the songs and how to format parts of the site. I made mistakes like not having the proper letters bolded or having letters too small, so this was a good learning experience for me. I think we also really worked well together to make the website better. Even when Emma had to leave a week earlier, she made sure she sent us all of her information and trusted us to put up her sections. Then Vivien and I formatted, added everything else and the result is this functioning website on probability, game theory, chance games and more.


math is fun!
