His work has been exhibited throughout northern California and pacific northwest. For the past four decades Duchscher has dealt with the exploration of geometric forms and has focused on the element of line. This has allowed him to create illusionary and actual phenomenon. The use of linear parallel in his artwork has lead to an investigation in space, since the three-dimensional forms seem to be two-dimensional depending on certain angles people view the sculpture. The artist is concerned with the three-dimensional existence compared to their two dimensional aspects and illusionistic…

  • Analysis Of Do The Right Thing By Spike Lee

    This can be seen when the different races speak straight into the camera about they hate other races. It can also be seen when Lee himself looks into the camera and says, “You’re all racists”. Lee also uses different lighting to expose the extreme heat that the characters are faced with. Overall, Lee produced his film by exploiting pre and post classical Hollywood cinema techniques by using music and facing the camera on the characters in different angles and using close up shots. Having…

  • Mere Definition Essay

    In the article, The Role of Definition, the author discusses how a mere definition can affect the way a student will interpret information. A definition can contain concepts that are difficult to understand and will hamper a student’s ability to learn. As math in the classroom progresses, The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics recommends that the students create their own definitions of for mathematical terminology with the modification from a teacher. This is done to get the student to…

  • Trisine Functions: Definition Of Sine Ratios In A Triangle

    statement: For any acute angle α, we draw a right triangle that includes α. The sine of α, abbreviated sin α, is the ratio of the length of the opposite this angle to the length of the hypotenuse of the triangle. If we simplify we get a formula which says: It is shown in a diagram below. We can see immediately that this definition has a weak point. It does not tell us exactly which right triangle to draw. There are many right triangles, large ones and small ones that include a given angle α.…

  • Unit 1 Swimming Research Paper

    For my mathematical exploration paper, I have decided to base it on the topic of swimming as it can be affiliated with many mathematical components. However, I was profoundly interested in determining the optimal kicking angle as it caught my recognition. As I further explored this topic, I decided to endeavour to connect a swimmer’s water movement with the quantity of water being pushed around against the flow. As a swimmer myself, I was greatly interested in determining the optimal angle to…

    member attempting to stop it and may unhook from the line and land on a group member’s foot, this risk will be minimised by wearing closed in shoes at all times and letting the masses reach equilibrium without human interaction. The ruler being used is made of plastic and can be shattered easily at which point the edges will be pointy and possibly sharp. To avoid being harmed by the ruler; it will be removed from the lab bench as the mass is released to minimise the risk of the weight shattering…
