For seven years, Paul Lockhart’s A Mathematician’s Lament loved a samizdat-style attractiveness within the arithmetic underground, ahead of call for triggered its 2009 book to even wider applause and debate. An impassioned critique of K–12 arithmetic schooling, it defined how we shortchange scholars through introducing them to math the other way.

Taking the natural logarithms of the given distances and periods produces the following results. 8. 8 From ln y ϭ 32 ln x, it follows that y ϭ x 3͞2, or y 2 ϭ x 3. In other words, the square of the period (in years) of each planet is equal to the cube of its mean distance (in astronomical units) from the Sun. Johannes Kepler first discovered this relationship in 1619. LINEAR ALGEBRA APPLIED Researchers in Italy studying the acoustical noise levels from vehicular traffic at a busy three-way intersection on a college campus used a system of linear equations to model the traffic flow at the intersection.
