• The Pythagorean Theorem: Euclidean Geometry

Johnny Martinez Period 7th Pythagorean Theorem The Pythagorean Theorem also known as Pythagoras’s theorem is a relation in Euclidean geometry that are the tree sides of a right triangle. It’s the sum of the areas of the two squares on the legs equals the area of the square on the hypotenuse. The equation use for it is A squared plus B squared equals C squared.The Theorem relates the lengths of the three sides of any right triangle. The theorem is named after the ancient Greek. There is evidence that indicates that Pythagorean Theorem was well- known to the mathematicians of the first Babylonian Dynasty (20th to 16th centuries BC) which would have been over a thousand years before Pythagoras was born. People say that Pythagoras discovered the theorem at least fifteen hundred years before Pythagoras was born. But no one really knows when it was founded or discovered. The Pythagorean Theorem was known long before Pythagoras but he might have been the…

• Non Euclidean Geometry Essay

Eliot explores a myriad of interpretations of the meaning of logos in the Four Quartets through Einstein’s theory of Relativity, by examining it through the bending of space and time, ultimately using this lens to arrive at the conclusion of the Incarnation. This curvature of spacetime opened the doors to the reality of a new method of understanding the world: non-Euclidean Geometry. Non-Euclidean Geometry differs from several key postulates of traditional Euclidean Geometry. These reworked…

• Agnosticism: What´s An Individual Religion?

for themselves. Religion, in many cases three main components within itself. First and the most obvious, the history of an individual religion, it’s culture and concepts which are explored within it. Second, the rules or mechanics of religion. Lastly, faith being the core of religion, due to the requirement of it for someone to believe what the individual’s religion is formed around. To show that faith isn’t only required for religiousness, math, seen as a universal truth which itself cannot be…

• Nikolai Ivanovich Lobachevsky

professor of mathematics at Kazan University for nineteen years, devised a method for finding roots of a polynomial and published a plethora of material on algebra, numerical analysis, astronomy and probability. His most important discovery was the idea of non-Euclidian geometry, the thought of which was met with scorn and derision during his lifetime, but one that would go on to be a cornerstone for our modern understanding of…

• Romeo And Juliet Act 1 Scene 3 Scene Analysis

All the scenes in the play were short and barely any characters were called by name. They also did not go in order of the pamphlet that spells “Shakespeare.” Throughout my paper, I try to describe each scene to the best of my ability with the info of which play they are acting out or about just the scenes in general. The beginning of the play began with people cleaning up the stage with brooms. The three people were slouched over sweeping close together. This showed medium topography and close…

• Van Hiele Levels Of Geometric Reasoning Essay

The Van Hiele Levels of Geometric Reasoning describes how students learn geometry. It was a theory worked on by Pierre Van Hiele and his wife, Dina Van Hiele-Geldof. They were Dutch researchers and teachers. They came up with this theory at the University of Utrecht in the year 1957. The Van Hiele’s did multiple research experiments and it took years for them to complete this thesis. Shortly after the thesis was complete, Dina passed away (Šafránková, 2012, p. 72). These levels have five…

• Kaufmann Desert House Summary

the first thing that was drawn to my attention was all the similar geometry, specifically the L shaped geometries. They were all different shapes and sizes, and were facing all different directions, There was a sense of repetition embedded within the floor plan. A central axis stood out, and it was obvious that all the L shaped geometries were rotated around this central axis, and then shifted off of it. Diagram one is all about identify the geometric properties that make up the structure. So…

• Importance Of My Experience With Mathematics

I continued on in high school with geometry, a second year of algebra, precalculus, trigonometry, and calculus. Thus far, my math courses in college have also been easy for me. My least favorite teacher was my calculus teacher, and it was not solely because of the tough subject matter. He was an engineer who took up teaching after retirement. He very simply could not teach well. He would stand in front of the board and talk through the problem at a pace that was almost impossible to follow. I…

• Pythagoras Research Paper

in the eastern Agean. He was the son of Mnesarchus and his mother's name was Pythais as early writers say. His father was a gem-engraver or a merchant. As to the date of his birth Asistoxenus stated that Pythagoras left Samos in the reign of Polycrates at the age of forty. Great Philosophers/Scholars does not agree that Pythagorean Theorem was proved by himself. In twentieth century Bartel Leendar van der Waerden conjected that Pythagorean triple were discovered algebraically by the…
