    1865 words, 8 pages

    Pythagoras was born on the island of Samos, Greece in 569 BC, and died about 500 BC in Metapontum, Lucania. He traveled extensively in Egypt, learning math, astronomy and music. Pythagoras was also a healer, a wrestler, and was politically active. Pythagoras was a Greek Mathematician born in 569 B.C. who studied math, music, and astronomy. His Life Pythagoras left Samos in disgust for its ruler Polycrates. He settled in Cretona, a Greek colony in southern Italy. There he founded a movement with religious, political and philosophical goals. To facilitate his movement, he created a school wh

    Physics Projectile In Motion

    2093 words, 9 pages

    UP, UP, AND AWAY A Projectile in Motion Projectile motion was observed and recorded to determine which angle would give the maximum horizontal distance and whether two angles would yield the same horizontal distance. An estimation of the probable horizontal distance achieved by the projectile was determined through vertical measurements and a range equation, which calculated the targeted landing area as the angle changed. The results indicated that there were many angles that shared similar averages, typically those equa

    Understanding Mathematics

    18004 words, 73 pages

    Foundations of Mathematics Preface This set of notes is an outline of the concepts, structures, and theorems that serve as the point of departure for Mathematical Physics. The notes are intended to be used in conjunction with a companion volume entitled: Foundations Problem Set . Introduction The phrase Mathematical Physics refers to the mathematical models that are used to understand the physical environment. These models are founded on the two main ideas of Calculus: Differentiation and Integration. In turn, the framework of Number, Function, and Limit underlies

    The Adulthood

    2038 words, 9 pages

    Comparative Statics Analysis and the Concept of Derivative Comparative statics compares the different equilibrium value of the endogenous variables resulting from changes in the value of the exogenous variables and parameters in the model. When the value of parameter or exogenous variable that in associated with an initial equilibrium changes, we can get a new equilibrium. Then the question posed in the comparative statics analysis is: how would the new equilibrium compare with the old? Comparative statics allows economists to estimate things line the responsive of con

    Probable Geometries: The Architecture Of Writing In Bodies

    4810 words, 20 pages

    In the last decade the attention of architectural designers and theorists has been primarily directed toward the descriptive geometries with which architectural space is written. To the extent that geometry is the preferred language for architectural communication, its interrogation has become the dominant form of writing in architecture. More precisely, the majority of both spatial and theoretical innovations in architecture have become increasingly dependent on geometric conflicts. These developments are superlatively described by Mark Wigley in his introduction to the Deconstructivist Archi

    1. Define. a) Deductive argument; this is an argument that claims that its conclusion follows with certainty from the premises. (b) Inductive argument; this is an argument that claims that its premises make its conclusion merely probable 2. examples of the following and state the reason in each case. (a) Valid Deductive argument; This is a good deductive argument in which if the premises are established or assumed to be true, they provide irrefutable ground for the truth of the conclusion.

We needed to learn about shapes and what about each one made a difference for building a bee hive. We needed to learn about why certain shapes were more efficient than others. This portfolio will show you what steps were taken and what new techniques and formulas were learned during this process. The first mathematical topic introduced to us was about containers in g

    Description 1: Positive Effect If you would like to enjoy your life, you should go to Hawaii. It’s like heaven. I can not forget the first day when I opened my eyes in the morning and took a deep breath. I smelt a sweet, flowery perfume wafting out of a small vase full of brightly colored garlands sitting on the corner table.There were red, blue, and pink ones, and just about any color you can think of. Then, I felt so hungry, so I went down to the hotel restaurant to have my breakfast. The meal was so delicious so that I ate too much. Then I walked down to the beach.The weather was so nice

    Greece Contributions To Society

    1781 words, 8 pages

    Major Greek contributions include astronomy, optics, and acoustics, along with major advances in mathematics. Science in ancient Greece was based on logical thinking and mathematics. The Greeks were very interested to know about the world, the heavens, and themselves. Greek geniuses were articulate thinkers. (Pg. 55, Society and Technological Change) The Greek philosophers were very much drawn to mathematics. They invented its generality, analyzed its premises, and made notable discoveries of theorems by a rigid adherence to deductive reasoning. Geometry became the basic instrument for measur

    Before starting with the analysis of this case, it is important to underline that all the answers are interconnected and for instance, while I answer the first question, I am using extremely important ideas that should be considered for question 2 as well (or vice-versa). However, I opt to explain it first-hand, so ideas sound fluent and organized. Question 1 The Weighted Center of Gravity Method is a mathematical technique used to find the location of a distribution center that will minimize distribution costs. In this case, it will help us find the optimal location for the warehouse, taking
