Being a programmer, one of the challenges I find with math is unfamiliar notation. I'll use summation as an example (as I actually understand that one):
You could explain this formula fairly easily with a description (for all integers between 3 and 7, square each value and then add the squares together). The more complex the formula, however, the more complex the description.
When I learn a new type of formula notation, I find it helps to create a "sudo code" version. Here's a sudo code example (again, very basic) for summation:
For each integer i between 3 and 7:
CurrentValue = i^2
SummedValue = SummedValue + CurrentValue
This not only provides an explanation of the notation, but allows my programmer mind to understand the process for performing the calculation.
From a CBM perspective, are there any resources that provide this type of math-to-code examples?
