Mathematics expresses itself everywhere, in almost every facet of life – in nature all around us, and in the technologies in our hands. The co-efficients needed when a binomial is expanded form a symmetrical triangle, usually referred to as Pascal’s Triangle after the 17th Century French mathematician Blaise Pascal , although many other mathematicians had studied it centuries before him in India , Persia, China and Italy , including Al-Karaji.
It’s perhaps strange that for a subject that relies so strongly on mathematical proof, there is no right or wrong answer when it comes to answering the question, what is mathematics?” Aristotle defined mathematics as the science of quantity”, while Isidore Auguste Comte preferred calling it the science of indirect measurement” and Benjamin Peirce the science that draws necessary conclusions”.

Members of the Colorado State Board of Education are charged by the Colorado Constitution with the general supervision of the public schools. Often individual concerns can be handled if you begin at the source and follow proper channels before approaching members of the Board of Education. Examination is the pivotal point around which the whole system of education revolves and the success or failure of the system of examination is indeed an indicator of the success or failure of that particular system of education.
The Board may also meet privately in closed session to discuss confidential matters such as personnel, labor negotiations, or legal issues. Regular Meetings: On the third Thursday of each month, again with the exception of August, the Board convenes in regular meetings, which are held in Summit High School’s Media Center.

Some individuals work directly on issues of classroom practice, others identify as much with fields such as educational policy analysis, curriculum theory, teacher education, or some particular subject-matter domain such as math or science education, as they do with philosophy of education.
And they coexist as impulses within broad philosophical movements, and even within the thought of individual philosophers themselves, sometimes conflicting in a way that might help explain the tendency toward reflexive self-examination and uncertainty that so exercises philosophy of education as a field.
