MUSKOGEE — A private school that bills itself as Oklahoma’s oldest higher education institution may unceremoniously fade into history, catching students off guard during finals week and leaving them, faculty and staff in flux entering summer break.Bacone College is temporarily shuttered — about 90 of its 95 full-time employees laid off until further notice — as its new president and board of trustees search for $2.5 million in funding. The administration is urging students to secure an option in case the Christian liberal arts school remains closed, while hoping funds emerge soon enough to re-open in June or July.With closure a practical reality, some Bacone students may have nowhere else to go for legal or financial reasons. Some are happy to transfer as they feel their campus living environment hasn’t met expectations. Others want to return but may not be able to wait out an uncertain financial picture.The four-year school’s mission involves trying … [Read more...] about ‘It is so sad that we can’t solve this problem’: Bacone students, staff grappling with closure of college

Everyone knows I like to analyze the trailers of upcoming movies—in particular, movies that I'm excited about. In this case, it's Incredibles 2. I have high hopes for this one since the first Incredibles was really great. In the trailer, we see Mr. Incredible doing his job—helping out with math homework (that's one of the things dads do). Here is how that goes down. Dash: "That's not the way you're supposed to do it, dad. They want us to do it this way." Mr. Incredible: "I don't know that way—why would they change math? Math is math. Math is math!" This is what makes a great movie. There are probably quite a few parents that can relate to this. But who is right? Is math math? Or are you supposed to do it some other way? How about an example? Solve the following: Timmy has 2,314 pieces of candy that he want to share between among his group of 8 friends. How many pieces of candy does each friend get? Yes, I think that's a silly question—but I also think that … [Read more...] about Asks: What’s the Right Way to Solve a Math Problem?

It’s no secret that the OneSpin team loves contests. Last year around this time, we set a challenge to engineers everywhere: solve the famous Einstein’s Riddle using a formal tool.After an enthusiastic response, we decided to make the holiday puzzle an annual event, with a different subject area each year. Our engineering team was challenged to come up with a new topic, and my idea, which centers on what has been called the “World’s Hardest Sudoku,” was chosen for this year’s puzzle. You can learn more about the contest here. Read on to find out how I came up with the challenge.Several months back, I ran across a news article entitled, “Unsolvable Sudoku: Do you dare to try?” I spent a week’s worth of consecutive evenings working on the puzzle (pictured here) for a few hours every day, but I was only able to manage to jump back and forth between a handful of steps. It has been said that, on a difficulty scale of one to five stars, … [Read more...] about Using Formal To Solve The World’s Hardest Sudoku
