Mathematics is a language to describe physics laws at the most fundamental level – the laws of numbers. Great scientific advancement often demands that physicists and mathematicians work hand in hand
For mathematics Professor Po-Shen Loh, math is the art of creative thinking. And teaching math wasn’t enough for this self-described math evangelist. He launched Expii, a free math education platform that gathers difficult math problems and shares techniques for solving them.
Po-Shen Loh is a Hertz Foundation Fellow and Carnegie Mellon mathematics professor who thinks that history is a much harder subject than math. Do you agree? Well, your position on that might change before and after this video.
Po-Shen Loh is a Princeton-educated mathematician, Carnegie Mellon professor, the head coach of the U.S. International Math Olympiad team, and now he’s adding start-up entrepreneur to his knock-out resume. Loh has created Expii, a math and science education tool that aims to turn every smartphone into a tutor.
Americans are generally lousy at math, right? At least that’s what we hear every time there is an international test and the United States doesn’t come in close to the top.
Carnegie Mellon University placed first in the Mathematical Association of America’s 77th William Lowell Putnam Competition, the premier mathematics competition for undergraduate students in North America.
Meet Po-Shen Loh, the professor at Carnegie Mellon University and head coach for Team USA, who paved the way for the U.S. to win the International Mathematical Olympiad for the second consecutive year.
