# Mathsfont For Thought

Welcome to Thought Quotes. The quotes given here prove beyond doubt that it is thought that creates, and that thought precedes action. It is now universally recognised that destiny, good luck, bad luck, fortune, misfortune, etc. Are all euphemisms for 'result of thinking'.

3. In What Is Thought? Eric Baum proposes a computational explanation of thought. Just as Erwin Schrodinger in his classic 1944 work What Is Life? Argued ten years before the discovery of DNA that life must be explainable at a fundamental level by physics and chemistry, Baum contends that the present-day inability of computer science to explain thought and meaning is no reason to doubt there can.

On this site you will find all sorts of things related to Mathematics and its teaching. There will be thoughts and

ideas posted on a semi regular basis. There will be resources that I have written and used as a Maths teacher at various times over the last 30 years. The more interesting of these ideas and resources will come from a view of the subject and of teaching the subject that is a little different to the dominant view of our times. This may strike a chord with you or it may challenge and provoke you to look at things differently. The aim is that you find the site and the resources fun, different from what you might normally see and useful.

Using format strings in Python I can easily print a number in 'scientific notation', e.g.

What is the simplest way to format the number in LaTeX format, i.e. 1times10^{+09}?

The siunitx LaTeX package solves this for you by allowing you to use the python float value directly without resorting to parsing the resulting string and turning it into valid LaTeX.

When the LaTeX document is compiled, the above code will be turned into . As andybuckley points out in the comments, the plus sign might not be accepted by siunitx (I've not tested it), so it may be necessary to do a .repace('+', ') on the result.

If using siunitx is somehow off the table, write a custom function like this:

Testing:

1.5e-10 style scientific notation looks ugly in LaTeX math mode , Notebook sets MathJax up automatically, so no idea what packages they use). Context: floating point numbers and numerical programming. For Then if -4 <= exp < p, the number is formatted with presentation type ‘f’ and precision p-1-exp. Otherwise, the number is formatted with presentation type ‘e’ and precision p-1. In both cases insignificant trailing zeros are removed from the significand, and the decimal point is also removed if there are no remaining digits following it.

You can write a frexp10 function:

Formatting in LaTeX style is then:
