Math FactsType ForumThis is a bad suggestion, but maybe there could be a forum full of 'mathtype facts or information' designed to help people and children with mathematics? The Formulas section is...'kind of' designed to help people, but maybe another forum designed for this thing would be useful. #2 20060817 22:30:13
Re: Math FactsType ForumOn the contrary, a good idea. Like the other good idea of a symbol and definition section. I just have to figure a good structure for it. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #3 20060830 16:39:48
Re: Math FactsType ForumWkipedia has a a good lot of mathematical symbols with their definitions. Although I suspected they wouldn't have all the details and symbols. Last edited by Devanté (20060830 16:40:24) #4 20060830 19:23:14
Re: Math FactsType ForumYeah, that's good! "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #5 20060830 22:16:11
Re: Math FactsType ForumSounds good... #6 20060830 23:29:20
Re: Math FactsType ForumFor the geometry symbols I used mostly images I made myself. But the Wikipedia characters look fine on my PC, but maybe not on others. So maybe we can use some of them successfully. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #7 20060831 02:22:54
Re: Math FactsType ForumIf some of the characters that are on Wikipedia may not show up on some users' screens and could be of some use to us, we could easily get a snapshot of the character and crop it down to a good size to use on the forum/site as a character image, rather than as plain text. #8 20060831 21:09:57
Re: Math FactsType ForumYou need two sizes of each symbol  large for the first column, and small for the examples. If I had the time I would get on to it straight away  copy the "Geometry Symbols" page, rename it "General Symbols", and start populating it with symbols.
