  Map (disambiguation) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Generally, a map is a two-dimensional representation of a three-dimensional space.
In mathematics, a map is a generalization of a function.
Road map is also used metaphorically for a plan, for example "Road map for peace".

 Communications in Mathematics
This perspective on inquiry is especially significant for mathematics education, given the dominance of a "techniques curriculum" (Bishop, 1988) that represents mathematics as a collection of facts and procedures.
Engaging students in mathematical inquiries, that is, inviting them to experience and appreciate first hand the ambiguity, nonlinearity, and "conscious guessing" (Lampert, 1990) associated with the mathematical thinking of professional mathematicians, is one way to demystify mathematics learning for students (Borasi and Siegel, 1994b).
From this perspective, reading serves as a means of receiving the expert's message (and may be perceived by the teacher as an obstacle to students' learning when appropriate reading skills are lacking), whereas writing functions as a mode of knowledge display that provides evidence that the students have achieved the desired learning outcome (Pimm, 1987).

 Careers in Mathematics
Mathematics is among the most fascinating of all intellectual disciplines, the purest of all art forms, and the most challenging of games.
Mathematics is often done in conjunction with another field: biology, physics, economics, or a host of others.
Applied mathematics draws heavily on analysis, differential equations, and linear algebra to solve problems in statics (making sure the beams are strong enough to hold up the bridge), mechanics (describing how a pendulum moves), electricity and magnetism (calculating the magnetic field induced by an electric current), and many other areas.

 MAP · Mathematics, Algorithms and Proof
The MAP club is born at a Dagstuhl meeting in the beginning of January 2003.
Which was striking at Dagstuhl was on one hand the plurality of subjects studied by the participants and on the other hand a deep and subtle unity of *style* in the very nature of the various breakthroughs which were reported.
The whole domain of mathematics might be formalized, and such an organization amounts on the contrary to consider that algorithmic and logic constitute more primitive subjects than mathematics.

The fields in the "bubbles" are the major heading areas in the Mathematics Subject Classification (MSC) scheme.

 Quantum Gravity Concept Map   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
The Quantum Gravity Concept Map is a highly experimental work: its goals are to help the author organize his own understanding of the subject, and to test the hypothesis that html is a natural language for the construction of a concept map.
That the language of mathematics is necessary for the expression of that understanding is a corollary of the notion of objective reality: physics may only concern itself with those phenomena which are independent of the physicist.
But while the mathematics behind both General Relativity and Quantum Field Theory is rich and complex, it is the purpose of this work to organize the concepts which are described by the mathematics: those ideas which both experiment and mathematics validate, but whose expression does not use mathematics.

 The Most Colorful Math of All
Given any map, there is, however, a reasonably fast way to tell whether or not you can color it with two colors, and we do know you won't ever need more than four colors.
To get an idea of how impractical this would be, select a map such as Bumpington, (which is relatively simple, in the sense that it doesnt have very many regions) and try to find a systematic way of counting all the different ways it can be colored with fewer colors--three colors or even two.
Additional maps are easy to draw, and you will learn a lot about map coloring by experimenting with maps to give to your students that will challenge them and let them apply what they know.

While the mathematical details of the projection process can be rather complex, the student will interact with specially designed software that takes a simple approach to the teaching the mathematics behind map projections and their equations.
Aside from the mathematics of the equations, the student will also become familiar with the various parameters that are often associated with projection equations.
This transformation is commonly called a map projection because the latitude and longitude values are "projected" (a mathematical term) into a Cartesian coordinate system (x and y).
