Geometry and Eratosthenes In Professor Russ physical science class, there’s a plethora of subjects you, as a student, are bound to cover. This semester we had discuss over twenty different fields of science; the first being Geometry and Eratosthenes computing circumference of earth. We started the final semester off with two worksheets. The first was the “Angles of a Triangle”, we had to cut out the three angles of the triangle and piece them together in a shape. The three angles form a straight line; which led us to theorize that when you take three angles of a triangle and put them together they form a straight line. After the Angles of Triangle assignment, the next was parallel line cut out exercise. From this assignment we learned that equal angles should fit together, and that angles are equal in quadruplets. However, when we added numbers to our angles, from
Eratosthenes Earth Circumference assignment, we learned that to put numbers on an angle you have to divide the arc length the circumference, the diameter, or radius.

Celestial Lights Movements Theorist The second subject we went over was Ptolemy, Copernicus, Tycho Brahe, Keplers theories of Celestial Lights Movements and. Now, according to Ptolemy the Earth is standing still and the sun and stars are circling the Earth. On the other hand, Copernicus thought that the earth was circling the sun and the surrounding stars were still. Tycho Brahe believed that the
Earth doesn’t move and the sun plus…

Number Theory and Cryptography Expanded coverage allows instructors to include just a little or a lot of number theory in their courses. The relationship between the mod function and congruences has been explained more fully. The sieve of Eratosthenes is now introduced earlier in the book. Linear congruences and modular inverses are now covered in more detail. Applications of number theory, including check digits and hash functions, are covered in great depth. A new section on cryptography integrates…
