A classification system for science news

Science news and articles are becoming increasingly popular, but with so much being written about so many things, it can be confusing for the beginner science enthusiast to grasp what they’re reading and how to interpret it. A simple classification system could help remedy this…

It is possible to define a consistent addition of points on certain kinds of curves (elliptic curves). This arithmetic plays an important role in modern mathematics. For instance, Wiles’ proof of Fermat’s last theorem is a consequence of the modularity theorem (once known as the Taniyama-Shimura-Weil conjecture), which gives a strong connection between elliptic curves and modular forms. Elliptic curves over finite fields also have cryptographic applications, or can be used for integer factorization.

When people ask me how I can be a math major and still say I’m not good with numbers, I’m like ‘here, let me draw you a picture.’

All so true.

^For those that are considering majoring in math but are deterred by their lack of number skills, there’s definitely more to mathematics than simply numbers. (I’m not dissing stats or number theory or algebra though. Those are cool too!)

Can’t decide if I want to do post-grad stuff in theoretical physics or pure maths. Need to sort my mathematical life out this year…
