Here is a whole new way of looking at math that liberates math phobes from their anxiety, enables business people to do their jobs more effectively, challenges and informs math buffs, and provides educators with the tools to teach math easily and effectively. How can it do all that? By reuniting numbers and meaning, two subjects that should never have been separated in the first place. Entertaining, anecdotal, and immensely practical, this extraordinary book offers a revolutionary way of looking at math as a language, something that we've all heard before but which has never made sense until now. Mathsemantics is that rare book that will change the way you look at the world—and provide the most sensible and inspiring answer yet to the problem of American innumeracy. "Eye opening . . . a good antidote to innumeracy."—Library Journal

​This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 11th International Conference on Intelligent Computer Mathematics, CICM 2018, held in Hagenberg, Austria, in August 2018. The 23 full papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from a total of 36 submissions. The papers focos on the Calculemus, Digital Mathematics Libraries, and Mathematical Knowledge Management tracks which also correspond to the subject areas of the predecessor meetings. Orthogonally, the Systems and Projects track called for descriptions of digital resources, such as data and systems, and of projects, whether old, current, or new, and survey papers covering any topics of relevance to the CICM community.

It s Not about Math It s about Life

In his book , Mathsemantics : Making Numbers Talk Sense , MacNeal , points out how unnatural this may be for young children . “ There's no way for the child to construct the needed mathsemantics from ordinary childhood semantics .

For a long time, all thought there was only one geometry — Euclidean geometry. Nevertheless, in the 19th century, many non-Euclidean geometries were discovered. It took almost two millennia to do this. This was the major mathematical discovery and advancement of the 19th century, which changed understanding of mathematics and the work of mathematicians providing innovative insights and tools for mathematical research and applications of mathematics.A similar event happened in arithmetic in the 20th century. Even longer than with geometry, all thought there was only one conventional arithmetic of natural numbers — the Diophantine arithmetic, in which 2+2=4 and 1+1=2. It is natural to call the conventional arithmetic by the name Diophantine arithmetic due to the important contributions to arithmetic by Diophantus. Nevertheless, in the 20th century, many non-Diophantine arithmetics were discovered, in some of which 2+2=5 or 1+1=3. It took more than two millennia to do this. This discovery has even more implications than the discovery of new geometries because all people use arithmetic.This book provides a detailed exposition of the theory of non-Diophantine arithmetics and its various applications. Reading this book, the reader will see that on the one hand, non-Diophantine arithmetics continue the ancient tradition of operating with numbers while on the other hand, they introduce extremely original and innovative ideas.

In this illuminating look at what has gone wrong in broadcast newswriting, veteran network newswriter Mervin Block shares his feelings on this alarming decay. His analysis of television news anchors' words reveals a mangling and strangling of the English language, as well as violations of broadcast style; but worse, there is a disturbing amount of distortions, deceptions, discrepancies, inaccuracies, time-twisting, and misrepresentations. Offering an intelligent critique of the most popular broadcast news outlets, this work looks at how substandard news reporting affects democracy at its most basic levels.
