Where do you use math in your profession?
If your going to explain math from a pure mathmathecal view point, yes that's hard But look around you math is everywhere every physiques formula is a probable example, who don't know the example of car A and B are racing, A has speed x B has speed y B start ahead of A by distance d How long will it take A to pass B That's a simple physiques formula, could be used as an example. Not only physiques there is biology, chimistry, programing, etc... Math is everywhere in anything we use, even the sofa I'm sitting on is built using math I can't think of anything not related to math, one way or the other. One of math fascinating math implementation is in natural inspired algorithm there is a software called netlogo with lots of pre programed examples, a bit hard for kids but can be used by the teacher in a session or two to given students some live solved problems The software can be found here http://ccl.northwestern.edu/netlogo/

Open Source University, Open Source Civilization
Very nice idea. Lets suppose we have achieved that, a full open source university. But could a person with an open source degree still be able to find a respecteble job? Or what would he do with an open source degree? I really appreciate the hard work done in this field. But talking about open source or free online courses like Stanford courses and MITx with friends, there first reaction is, OK that's great but what do I do with it. These are great sources of knowledge, but in real life you live with bread not ideas. If these ideas are to gaine popularity or to spread they must have practicul uses specially in developing countries. Acquiring new knowledge is great having courses available for everyone is great but unless a practicul use is found I don't know??
