# Thread: math project - what to do it on?

1. I must do a project on anything math related.
I'm planning on doing it on a famous mathematician.

Who should I do my project on?

(im not going to do Euclid, Pythagoras, or Nash because they are just too popular)

2.

3. What about the Riemann Zeta Function (since Mathew failed :wink: )?

4. Gauss might be good, since he has contributed to loads of different mathematical areas. But he's also popular, in the mathematics world at least.

5. You know what? I might actually do the Riemann Zeta Function and explain what it is.

I'm looking through Gauss on wikipedia right now.

What about Paul Erdős? He seems rather interesting.

6. Math - what to do it on?

Paper is a good start

And you might need a calculator too.

I usually find i do

Edit - and a nice sharp pencil to do it with too

7. Erdős is a fantastic idea! He was definitely one of the most interesting math personalities.

was that a joke?

Is that a joke?

I was being utterly serious

The query was math project - what to do it on?

So i was giving my answer to the question

Shallow? Your understanding and logic would hardly make a puddle!

You seem to have skimmed my post without paying any attention (I assume you do this often).

I did say "[was that a joke?] otherwise..." so you should have no reason for getting angry.
Your post was useless because I only asked "Who should I do my project on?" and not "How should I start my project." Please read before you reply, thanks.
This conversation can serve no purpose anymore.

Honestly, I have no idea who Nash is. Apparently I'm very out of the mathematicians-loop.

Check out Euler, he's done tons of good stuff in mathematics...though perhaps that's not a good thing, depending on how big the project has to be.

I'm sorry but your wording above makes no sense whatsoever

Could you try to make a little more sense in future

Thanks

Big kiss from monkey x

Oh BTW I think it is you that is getting angry, really, you should try to be more calm and rational, it's not good for your health to get yourself in such a state

Oh well, just stick to the maths then.

15. Nash is the guy from the movie "a beautiful mind", no? His stuff has to do with economics modeling or trend prediction or whatever.

16. Selene, as long as you understand what I was saying, spelling does not matter. This is a forum, hardly an English class. I do however apologize for my misspellings.

I use microsoft office to correct my spellings (you know, the red squiggly thing under misspelled words?) English is not my first language.

Anyways, continuing this conversation seriously has no effect on either of us. So please step down from your chariot of ignorance and summon the ability to stop. I have no time for your replies anymore.

Yeah!! Its a really cool movie because Nash was playing a board game called 'Go' in that one scene! (not saying that it was the best part of the movie, but Go is one of my favorite games)
