A true liberal arts education equips us not only to understand mathematical form and structure but also to craft a thoughtful essay, to appreciate a performance or painting, to juggle molecules and matter and, dare I say, to compete on the athletic field. Nor am I arrogant in believing that mathematics alone holds the keys to unlocking the future. This implies two conjectures of Hernando, McGuire and Monserrat.  Below is a summary of the functions and variables provided. I am not deluded into thinking lives are transformed when my students understand the gradient of a function or the eigenvalue of a matrix. And later on in his Mathematics: Form and Function (1986). Mathematics > Combinatorics We determine all planar functions on F_q of the form c --> c^t, under the assumption that q >= (t-1)^4. While manipulating the elements of art  line, shape, color and form, one is also playing with mathematical functions, geometry, numbers and graphs. Mathematical ideas do not live fully until they are presented clearly, and we never quite achieve that ultimate clarity.

This is a very intuitive way to feel and learn math. Each is described, with an example, on this page. To improve somewhat the built-in generator we can use a table in the form:.
