Station 2 - Station two had two instruments Riq and Gungarhu which had very similar size both can be small but, the Riq can be bigger to the size of a Frisbee and when they are small can be the size of a scrunchy. Also both have a circular frame. Both have very similar sound of a jingling key sound, the only difference is riq is a lot more quite.…
Although uncommon, combining literature with mathematics to better explain geometrics and become more aware of mathematical meanings was a crafty way of putting these two elements together. This novel expresses the themes clearly by adding the mathematical spin-off. To understand something not easily interpreted,…
These three quadrilaterals have some of the same characteristics. For example, they all are parallelograms and a parallelogram has four sides with opposite sides being parallel. Another example, the diagonals bisect each other. These three quadrilaterals have some different characteristics. For instance, in a square all angles are congruent and all sides, in a rhombus all sides are congruent.…
The purpose of this lab is to demonstrate Keplar's First Law of Planetary Motion by calculating the eccentricity of ellipses. The 3 main words that were important in this lab exercise was eccentricity, ellipse, and foci. Eccentricity means the degree of ovalness of an ellipse or how far an ellipse is from being a circle. Ellipse is a closed curve around two points in which the sum of the distances between any point of the curve and the foci is a constant. And lastly, foci is either of two fixed points located so that the sum of their distances to any point on the ellipse is constant.…
A line is a path left by a moving point. There are four main functions of a line, they are: to outline a shape; to create movement or emphasis; to develop pattern and texture, and also to shade and model using techniques such as hatching, cross-hatching and stippling. To further define a line, there is more than one type. There are an actual line which is a visible mark made by a type of medium, there is psychic line where there is no real line yet one of is felt, another type can…
During a class demonstration I observed that termites would sometimes follow a black and straight line drawn using a pen by our teacher. I then began to wonder why this is, and I concluded that it was because the line was straight. I had a question; do termites follow straight lines, or curved lines the best?…
Let us sum up the history of geometry from its beginnings in peg-and-cord constructions for circles and squares.…
The north-south lines represent lines of longitude while the east-west lines represent lines of latitude. The Prime Meridian and the International Date Line are both important lines of longitude, the first divides the planet into the western and eastern hemisphere at 0 degrees while the second is located at 180 degrees and separates two calendar dates. The equator, the tropic of cancer and the tropic of Capricorn are the three most important lines of latitude. The Equator is located at o degrees latitude and divides the planet into the north and south hemispheres, while the Tropic of Cancer and Tropic of Capricorn are located at 23.5 degrees north of the equator and 23.5 degrees south of the equator respectively.…

geometry (from the Greek elleipein, "to fall short") the distance decreases and the rays eventually meet. These non-Euclidean geometries were later incorporated in a much more general geometry developed by C. F. Gauss and G. F. B. Riemann (it is this more general…
Course Introduction Course Introduction Mathematics C30 is the third of three Grade 12 level mathematics courses. The topics covered are Trigonometry The Conics Mathematical Proof There are ten lessons to this course, each followed by an assignment to be submitted for evaluation. Each of the ten assignments must be completed satisfactorily for the students to be eligible to write the departmental exam and for a term mark to be submitted. Module 1 contains Lessons 1 to 5 and Module 2 contains Lessons 6 to 10. Lessons 9 and 10 are review lessons. Although the course is self-contained, further examples and practice exercises may be obtained from any one of the references listed below. Text Book References 1.…
