Q17. Start by understanding what the problem is asking. What is the exact question you need to answer? Next, figure out what information you already know, and what you need to know in order to answer the question. While there is no ONE BEST way to solve word problems, first, it's important to understand what the problem is asking. What exactly is the question you need to answer? The next thing to do is to figure out what information you already know, and what you need to know in order to answer the question(s). Or you might want to rewrite the problem in your own words, and work with that information. Next, you need to figure out how to get from the information you're given to the answer you want. What can you do with your given information? What other tools might you need? A different formula? It's a good idea to do the work one step at a time if it's a big problem, so you don't try to solve the whole thing at once. It's much easier to keep the pieces of the problem in order if you work this way, and much easier to avoid mistakes. It's important to check your work as you go, and, after you finish, to make sure you're getting results that make sense.
Q18. Math is changing. Since the computer revolution, a new image of the subject is gaining acceptance: the study of space-time patterns. Dynamic math is outpacing the static concepts established by the ancients. Presently the main branches are usually listed as: arithmetic, geometry, algebra, and dynamics (aka analysis). Sometimes logic, topology, chaos theory, and others, are listed as well.
Q19. Arithmetic is all about number, counting, order, etc. It is ancient but still evolving, albeit slowly, eg, finding more primes.
Q20. Geometry is the study of spatial (static) patterns such as triangles, circles, cubes, pyramids, etc. This ancient branch of math is still evolving, eg, noneuclidean geom, 1750, fractal geometry, 1972.
Q21. Algebra is an extension of arithmetic dealing with the solution of equations. Geometric algebra is an intermediate step in which geometrical constructions are used to solve equations.
Q22. Computers have radically changed the way math is done and taught, and new knowledge found.
