java based math libarary to handle multiple math scenarios 
by Joe in Programming Languages 

We are planning to do something similar to what is available in this
site AAAMath. We would like to generate sample questions which will add /
mult / div / sub (either 2 numbers or 3 numbers or one of the numbers could
be a constant ..). Would like to know if there are any libraries which
provide a higher level abstraction on the above basic math operations (e.g.
provide a single method which i

Jquery/Javascript Math: Why are these two 1 line math problems not giving the same answer? 
by jason166 in Web Design 

Shouldn't these two math problems give the same answer?
Brackets/parenthesis are done first, right? so it should add them all, then
divide it by 2, then subtract 10. The second answer below is the one giving
me the correct value that I need, the other one gives a value that's a long
ways off. var pleft = $(this).offset().left +
($(this).width() /2)  ($("#questionwrapper").w


Include classes of Mahout math libraries of both core & math folders  Eclipse  Hadoop 
by jrf in Programming Languages 

My issue is similar to this one : Runing a simple Mahout program , but a
bit more complicated. I am writing hadoop code, and would like
to use Mahout math libs (e.g. SparseRowMatrix & VectorWritable
classes). The problem is that the former example class lies at
math folder of latest SNAPSHOT of Mahout, while the latter is placed under
core folder  and both share the

In Ruby, is there a way to “arr.sort {i Math.cos(i) * Math.sin(i)}” instead using i,j and repeat it twice? 
by textmate in Programming Languages 

Such as the code: irb(main):001:0> a = [1, 2, 3, 4,
5] => [1, 2, 3, 4, 5] irb(main):002:0> a.sort {d,e (d 
3).abs <=> (e  3).abs} => [3, 2, 4, 1, 5] # sort by
closest distance away from the number 3
it is not so
good to repeat the expression twice, and it is too trivial to create a
function just for that expression. Is

Math Games to Teach Children to Improve Their Math Skills 
by Mai72 in Education 

Math can be difficult to teach. Since math can be especially difficult for
students many of them shut themselves off from the lesson than try to
learn. However, when incorporated into a fun or accessible activity,
students become more engaged and interested in math, sometimes not even
recognizing that they are learning it. These games work best for younger
students, primarily those between kinderg

Math.max and Math.min outputting highest and lowest values allowed 
by destrekor in Programming Languages 

so I'm trying to make a program that will output the sum, average, and
smallest and largest values. I have everything basically figured out except
the smallest and largest values are outputting 2147483647 and 2147483647,
which I believe are the absolute smallest and largest values that Java will
compute. Anyway, I want to compute the numbers that a user enters, so this
obviously isn't correct.

interactive tools and simpler notation than conventional math. Can someone
confirm this from experience, specifically for learning mathematical t

operator precedence and associativity with Math.Floor(Math.Random()) 
by DCal430 in Web Design 

I understand how the code works, in terms of the results it gives.
First, it gets a random number, and, second, using Math.floor() it rounds
down the results of Math.Random. Therefore, it's moving from right to left
through the code. Math.floor(Math.Random * num);
