Creativity in Mathematics (theory)

Project description
Creative Assignment #1
Work on this Assignment to get an A grade.
Please send me the system you think about before writing the whole paper. I want to check if the system you thought about is right or not and I want my professor to accept it before you write everything so please send me the system as soon as you are done..by Tuesday or Wednesday or maximum Thursday.
Overview:
The purpose of this assignment is to develop a new number system to be used in place of our current Hindu-Arabic, decimal (base-10) number system.
Outcomes:
At the end of this project, you will have:
– constructed an entirely new set of numerals that is not borrowed from any current or
well-known ancient number system or alphabet
– defined either a positional or non-positional system that is not a variant of the decimal
(base-10) number system or other well-known number system (e.g. Roman Numerals)
– outlined methods for performing basic arithmetic (e.g. adding, subtracting, multiplying
and dividing) on the numbers in your system
Food for thought:
– How did you come up with your numeral system?
– Why did you create it the way you did?
– How would you teach children to use this system? Specifically…
o how would you teach them to count?
o how would you teach them basic arithmetic?
– What are the benefits of this new system?
– What are the drawbacks of this new system, especially in comparison with our current
Hindu-Arabic system?
– Do you believe that you (or anyone else) could improve on our current numeral system?
o If yes, what would need to be done in order to improve the system?
o If no, why do you believe our current system is the pinnacle of human
achievement in the area of numeracy?
Requirements:
– Your assignment should be approx. four (4) pages (to a maximum of 5), double-spaced: o Approx. two (2) pages detailing the number system and explaining arithmetic
o Approx. two (2) pages for your wCreative Assignment #1
