Ender's Game Paper Topic - The Difference Between Mathematics and LiteratureThis is the end of an interesting paper topic from my Ender's Game. I found this paper topic, which involved math and creative writing, interesting.
You may remember Eugene V. Atkin from his Ender's Game essay, which you can find here on Amazon. In this essay, he states that literature is important to us, and it is important for everyone to read more than once a day. It is also important to use words creatively, and to interpret the world. How many times have you heard 'She is always smiling, she knows what she wants?' If you are wondering why this type of sentence doesn't occur more often in a novel like Ender's Game, that is because we have an abnormal reading habit.
As in most stories, mathematics will be used, but there is an interesting distinction between mathematics and literature. Yes, a child is going to learn about one and they are going to learn about the other, but a writer has much more control over the second. Why do we allow such a large gap to exist?
One of the things that happens is that a child may be asked to learn math by a teacher who doesn't know a thing about math. It is important for a teacher to know a little about the subject before the student starts, because as the student gets older, they become more familiar with what is happening and begin to build their knowledge. At the same time, children are using other people's words as if they are their own, and so they understand words better when they are not directly told them.
They will learn how to tell if something is true or not by observing it, and at the same time a reader will be able to tell if something is truthful by the way it was worded. This is a great illustration of what I have been talking about. In a sense, readers and writers have a much greater ability to express themselves than do children. To illustrate this, consider what happens when a writer writes a novel about the colonization of Mars.
A writer will have the ability to do a lot of things, and no matter how complex or interesting their plot may be, the ending is going to be the same. It is only when the author wants to deliver the reader to a different location, to a different time or to a different period that the author begins to turn his or her attention to a different concept, to a different place or time. The reason I have mentioned this is because if the writer takes a simple story and delivers it in a complex manner, the reader may take that as meaning that there is something wrong with the story.
Instead of doing this, the writer should remain focused on the goal he or she set out to achieve in the beginning of the story. By doing this, the writer will be able to reach the readers, and he or she will be able to reach the children at the same time. By concentrating on creating something complex, instead of attempting to make it simple, the writer is going to get an equally complex result.
In conclusion, it is important to maintain a balance between mathematics and literature because, by understanding the difference between what is a mathematics concept and what is a literary concept, the writer is going to be better equipped to write. Once a writer is able to successfully reach this balance, they will be able to tell the story in an amazing manner, and they will be able to make their readers connect with their characters.
