Mr. Dael's World of Mathematics

Mr. Dael's World of Mathematics is a place where students and parents can get information about his mathematics classes at Alexander High School. It is also a place to find out interesting facts about mathematics.


This is really amazing.

This is the weird world of water…


These Simple Animations by a NASA Scientist Prove The Speed of Light Is Torturously Slow A series of new animations by a NASA scientist show just how zippy – and also how torturously slow – the speed of light can be.

Great Internet Mersenne Prime Search - PrimeNet

Really cool. Great Internet Mersenne Prime Search - Finding world record primes since 1996. GIMPS is an organized search for Mersenne prime numbers using provided free software.

I like this.

Too bad we were not in school today.

Happy e day! In celebration of Euler's number, today, 2/7/18, is known as e day. How will you celebrate?

What Holds The Magnets Up?

This is a very attractive question.

Largest known prime number discovered: 50th known Mersenne prime ever found, on computer volunteered in collaborative project

Wow! A collaborative computer project has discovered the largest known prime number. The new prime number is nearly one million digits larger than the previous record prime number, in a special class of extremely rare prime numbers known as Mersenne primes.

Can He Make The Shot?

Every physics student at Alexander HS should be able to answer this question. Learn about and practice Classical Mechanics on Brilliant

Great Big Story

This is really cool.

Robert Lang is a physicist who worked at NASA studying lasers and has 46 patents on optoelectronics to his name. However, that's not what he's best known for now: he's a legend in the world of origami. His intricate designs are second to none, and they actually have applications back in engineering.

Hitting the Sun is HARD

This is an interesting video from the Science Dump explaining the difficulties in sending a spacecraft plunging into the surface of the sun.

I hope that after taking my class that the magic component is reduced to about 5%.


This is really satisfying to look at.

Vivid glowing auroras in Jupiter’s atmosphere! Our Hubble Space Telescope spotted this stunning light show. This observation program is supported by measurements made by our Juno spacecraft, which arrives at Jupiter on Monday. While Hubble is observing and measuring the auroras on Jupiter, Juno is measuring the properties of the solar wind itself; a perfect collaboration between a telescope and a space probe. More:

Auroras are created when high-energy particles enter a planet’s atmosphere near its magnetic poles and collide with atoms of gas.

One of the tragedies of mathematics.


CERN scientists 'break the speed of light'… Scientists said on Thursday they recorded particles travelling faster than light - a finding that could overturn one of Einstein's fundamental laws of the universe.


Interesting Science and Fiction.

Is it more or less than the output of a star? Asking for a friend.
