I'm the sole developer for a publishing house, doing on-line courses and exams.

We have a web designer, who typically does layouts and courses, but I do anything that involves programming logic.

comment Why learn to solve differential equations when computers can do it?
My eight year old just asked me the same question about adding and subtracting.

comment How big is infinity?
I would also recommend "The Quest for Infinity" by Brian Clegg. Highly readable, even for the non-mathematician.

@n.1 Keep your cis-normative privilege out of it!

comment Limit: $\lim_{n\to \infty} \frac{n^5}{3^n}$
I'm not sure if I can do this, but I'll throw it out and see if it sticks.

comment Is math built on assumptions?
i is a definition. But it comes from a huge assumption: Assume we actually could take the square root of -1. If we could, we'd call it i. and the implications of that statement follow quite spectacularly.

comment What was the first bit of mathematics that made you realize that math is beautiful? (For children's book)
For reasonable values of all.

comment How to convince a math teacher of this simple and obvious fact?
I would ask your math teacher to prove the assertion. That's how it works. You have already disproved it by providing counterexamples.

comment Proving $\frac{a^4}{b^3} +\frac{b^4}{c^3} +\frac{c^4}{a^3} \ge 3$
How did you get to the second line? It looks like it should solve down to x^8/y^6 >= 1 (take roots to simplify further). Something is wrong here, or there's a huge step missing.

The probability that A drew 5 balls is 100% since the question states: " A draws 5 balls"

I'd start by sketching out what I know. Draw the asymptotes and intercepts.
