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…
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…
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…
As the arrangement of 38 timber columns in Wisdom Path forms a figure “8” pattern which means infinity makes the secret spot looking extraordinary, we would like to develop this concept into our design by forming the shape of art installation to look like a circle instead of the “8” pattern. It will be too direct if we use the figure “8” pattern in our design as it will be like an imitating artwork of the wisdom path therefore we came up with an idea which is to form a circle shape for the art…
I visited the Modesto Junior College Art Gallery, it is located on the East Campus in Modesto. The title of the artwork presented that day was “Geometries in Cold Welded Steel.” This artwork was presented by the artist Tom Duchscher. Duchscher has been teaching design, sculpture, and ceramics at MJC for the past 40 years. 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…
A’s my eighth grade year, was corrupted by going into my freshman year, Geometry class. Our eighth grade year was still young. This was the good times when our grades didn’t count and I personally, didn’t care if my grades did count or not. My favorite time of the day was Algebra one. Now, I know that many of my classmates hated…
contributions made by Islamic mathematician Muhammad Al-Khwarizmi to the difference subjects of algebra, geometry and trigonometry. Ideas discovered by Al-Khwarizmi are discussed as well as other concepts that serve as proof of his understanding of various complex ideas we use nowadays. These concepts include simplifying equations, completing the square and trigonometric tables. Key-Words: - Islam, Mathematics, Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry 1 Introduction Throughout time, cultures and…
repetition pattern of ABAB, enclosed to expose. The relationship of repetitive to unique spaces reinforces the geometry, symmetry and balance of the building. Figure 1 shows how the axial line acts as a datum, it organizes the spaces and vertical planes. There is transformation in elevation, looking to Figure 6 the rectangular shape is pulled down to link the hierarchy of plan. Figure 7 shows the hierarchy of plan and elevation showing the terrace filled with views The plan is well…
My High School Mathematics Class Descriptions I am one of the three mathematics teachers at Rocky Boy High School, which is located on the Rocky Boy Indian Reservation in Montana. Since this school is located on a reservation, 99% of my students are Native American. The mathematic classes I teach at the high school are one section of Advanced Mathematics, two sections of Algebra 1, two sections of high school Pre-Algebra, and one section of eighth grade Pre-Algebra. The other two mathematic…
