Well, the answer is quite easy to understand. A point only remains a point when the size is infinitely small (the first diagram) and if the size increases (as shown in the second diagram) it becomes a collection of many points. A point is basically like a pixel on a screen, for better understanding you could make use of this example. So, when 2 pixels on ...
For combinatorics, Kenneth Bogart's Combinatorics through Guided Discovery is outstanding. For self study and guided exploration.
One way to detect that an exercise has some importance is if its result is used later in the text. As for lists of crucial but omitted results... well, I doubt such lists exist, and if they did, they'd omit things too, and people would object to those omissions. Not because every subject has a canonical list of crucial results and authors neglect to ...
I'm not sure there is an efficient way of finding out. The best way I know of is to consult a variety of textbooks. Different authors have different ideas of what is important.
Square One Television was an excellent PBS show from the late 80s - early 90s that was entirely focused on teaching math in an entertaining way. You can find some full episodes floating around Youtube as well as a number of the individual sketches. Unfortunately, as far as I know, the series has not been released on DVD as yet.
Work hard, play hard. I know it sounds cliché, but if you're a dedicated graduate student you can easily spend 90+ hours a week doing research, teaching, and coursework for several weeks. When things slow back down, take a day off to celebrate that you made it through those tough weeks. It’ll make it easier when things pick back up. Moreover, find a hobby ...
Go to compileonline.com's Matlab/octave page, enter the following, and click on "Execute Script": A = rand(3); B = rand(3); [V,D] = eig(A,B) Unfortunately their Python page doesn't seem to support numpy, but they also support R if you like that. Another option for octave specifically is Octave online, but it only supports line-by-line interpretation of ...
I'd suggest an online interpreter for Python, like: https://www.pythonanywhere.com/try-ipython/ Python (with the packages NumPy and SciPy) is a popular open-source alternative to Matlab. So, using an online interpreter like the one above can give your students a realistic impression on how to solve eigenvalue problems in practice. Example First import the ...
At this generality, Feynman's algorithm for solving problems is applicable. Write the problem down. Think really hard. Write the solution.
I am giving it a try here: Go the the website http://mathforum.org/social/math.disabled.html Maybe, just maybe you may find somehting (or somebody) to get some answers. I gave +1 for your question though. But it is tough. Arguably powerpoint slide shows is a method to have notes of how to do problems, is another thing that comes to mind. Good luck
