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 postulates allow for strange distortions of familiar shapes, such as a triangle with two right angles, or curved lines that are in actuality straight. Non-Euclidean Geometry provides Eliot a unique opportunity. One of the three key functions of literature is that it…
Leonhard Euler lived form 1707-1783. During his life time he published eight hundred sixty six pages and books to only be surpassed by Paul Erdos later on. His complete work is ninety volumes. Remarkably, most of his outputs were from his last two decades of being alive while his completely blind (www.usna.edu). His most famous contributions to the world of mathematics was his equation or better known as the Leonhard equation which is V+R-L=1. Where V is equal tothe number of vertices (nodes)…
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…
In her books, McKellar tries to relate math to this things “girly-girls” are interested in. In the book, “Girls Get Curves: Geometry Takes Shape” one of the ways McKellar tries to relate math to girls interest is by using “hot guys” as one of her examples when discussing “if…then” problems. She writes, “Let’s say we’re given All hot guys wear smelly socks. We could rewrite this…
Whether someone partakes in the activities of a church or are atheistic, religion touches all of us. Our understanding of how our morality are formed is debateable, with how close an individual’s ideals are connected with their religion’s commandments it is reasonable to believe that there is some connection between the two. To claim that someone does not have ideals, that they cannot think for themselves of what they think is right and wrong is to many, a ridiculous statement which in hand is a…
In this project I will talk about curves in three space, also known as curves in three dimensional space or 3 - D. Many of us are familiar with two dimensional space or 2- D. It is called two dimension space because it has two axes: the x-axes and the y-axes. Three dimensional space is represented by the symbol it is called three dimensional space because three axes are used to draw, and the three axes are: x, y, and z. Figure 01: Standard axes of 3 dimensions This is the standard axes…
December 11th, roughly. Five years and one month ago was the date that not only my life and surroundings changed and not to sound cliché, so did I as a person. I remember it vividly it was summer in South Africa, as our seasons are flipped to those in the states. Nevertheless it being summer I had a winter coat on because I knew it was winter in the U.S. but I didn't know how cold it would be so I dressed accordingly to how I felt it would be in a place where it snows. I remember going to get my…
Fear of the future is one phobia that every so often gets a grip of us all. Wilkinson continues to assert, "We look out into the future, trying our best to make wise decisions, only to find ourselves staring into the teeth of ferocious and widespread uncertainties. If only everything didn't depend on, well, everything else. How do we decide what kind of career path to pursue when it's not clear what industries will exist in 10 or 15 years? How do we plan our children's education when we can't…
Questions: Answer all questions given What kind of relationship did you see in your D vs T graphs (both hand and computer)? Do these relationships make sense? Explain! In the distance versus time graph for the hand graph, there is an exponential increase the in the distance traveled; as time progresses, the distance the car travels increases a little more, as the slope is not a straight line, but instead slopes upwards, with slopes later in the line being steeper than the slopes before. What…
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…
