Research shows that Hypatia of Alexandria was one of the first women to make substantial contribution to the development of mathematics. She lived in the great center of ancient learning; Alexandria, Egypt, in the 4th century A.D. While it t is assumed that she studied mathematics under her father, Thon of Alexandria; it is known that she was the head of the Platonist school in Alexandria around 400 A.D. Hypatia contributed in many ways to math; it is said that she edited the work on “The Conics…
Born on April 15, 1707 in Bales, Switzerland was man names Leonhard Euler. Following in his father's footsteps he was studying to be a rural clergyman. “Though originally slated for a career as a rural clergyman, Euler showed an early aptitude and propensity for mathematics, and thus, after studying with Johan Bernoulli, he attended the University of Basel and earned his master's during his teens.”(Biography.com Editors) During his time at school, Euler found a passion for mathematics. “By 1726,…
Pythagoras Born: about 569 BC in Samos, Ionia Died: about 475 BC He is named the first mathematician. Pythagoras was born near the Ionian coast of the Mediterranean, in the rich merchant family. After living in Egypt for 22 years and in Babylon for 12 years, he gained deep knowledge in natural and mathematical sciences. He gathered around a group of like-minded people, mostly aristocrats, and created a secret circle. The members of the circle studied various issues of philosophy and mathematics.…
I'm not exactly sure how to solve this question I might have forgot how to do it but I'm going to guess that based off the picture & what I know about circles I can say that all circles if this makes sense are always similar to each other & that's always no matter what the radius might be ' The steps are as follows... * Obviously draw a triangle * Insert angle bisector for each angle of the tri. Insert the lines & make sure that your long to the point where you can see the point of…
Angie Gunawardana Mr. Larlham Geometry Project- 6 5 May 2016 Sophie Germain was born in Paris, France on April 1, 1776. Her parents names were Marie- Madeline and Ambroise- Francois, and she was the second of the three daughters, they were a wealthy upper class French family. She began having an interest in mathematics when the Bastille fell and everyone was confined inside their homes, she would go inside her father’s library and read. She fell in love with a story about Archimedes and wanted…
M.C. Escher’s art has always been fascinating to look at; his tessellations especially. I was first introduced to him by my psychology teacher when we looked at optical illusions, and then, once again in art class when he was introduced as an amazing artist, rightfully so. Being a fan of his art, I was amazed to find I could translate it in math terms as well; tessellations turn into geometric ratios and formulas. From psychology, to art, to math, M.C. Escher’s art has been widely acclaimed as…
of the Kaufmann Desert House by Richard Neutra, 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…
4.1 First Side by Side Geometry The first model shown in figure 3 was for twin tunnels already constructed at a centre to centre spacing of 3D. This model helped to identify the influence of construction sequence on surface and subsurface ground displacement upon excavating the first and second tunnels underneath the existing twin tunnels. Figure 3: First Side by Side twin tunnels 4.1.1 Surface Displacements The surface displacements at distances of 4.75m, 7.125m, 9.5m and 11.875m from the…
Jean Kilbourne and Jesse J. Prinz explored the impact a person’s gender has on the way society views and treats them in their articles, “Two Ways a Woman Can Get Hurt” and “Gender and Geometry”. However, Kilbourne discusses advertising whereas Prinz focuses on academics and the job market. Kilbourne’s article points out how women are overly sexualized in advertising and tells us how damaging it can be for women. On page 510 she examines how advertisements contribute to addictions. According to…
Steve is currently a sophomore at Euclid High School who enrolled in Euclid City Schools August 14, 2015. Steve has earned 75% and above in all of his class this year except Geometry where he earned a 60% the first quarter. Steve improved his Geometry grade the second quarter earned a 79% (C+); however, his grade in Geometry dropped the third quarter to below a 60%. His current accumulative grade point average is a 2.59. He continues to earn above a 2.5 except for the third quarter where his GPA…
