Replicator enhancements I use the replicators a lot and love them but there are a few things I would like to see added/changed: - More uniform distribution of points by surface generator. If I place a surface generator on the surface of a sphere and give it an equal average and minimum spacing I get the following: The spread isn't uniform by any means. Believe it or not but I quite often need this so now I have to build a mesh myself and use the vertices as a point source.
21 GIFs That Explain Mathematical Concepts “Let's face it; by and large math is not easy, but that's what makes it so rewarding when you conquer a problem, and reach new heights of understanding.” Danica McKellar As we usher in the start of a new school year, it’s time to hit the ground running in your classes! Optical Illusion Structures : Reframe Art Installation The Reframe art installation is the collaborative creation of Dutch architecture and design studio Paul Scales and French architecture firm, Atelier Kit. Testing visual boundaries, this perspective-themed art piece made major waves at the Festival of Living Architecture in Montpellier, France. Keeping in tune with the design festival's theme of 'surprise,' the simplistic cube structure features multiple perspective views that change according to a viewers angle. The muted piece is constructed out of semi-transparent polycarbonate sheets and steel plumbing pipes. The Reframe art installation by Paul Scales and Atelier Kit showcases striking perspective views that vary from every angle of the impressive sculpture. Resembling a three-dimensional optical illusion, this complex structure was achieved with the use of simple materials and plenty of imagination.
Building a tree with replicators. London 862 posts Here's a quick overview as to how I used replication to make a complex tree.The first thing is to decide where you want the replicator to take over.Below you can see the green polys, these are points at which the branches are the same diameter.It is important to keep this constant as your branches will start at this size so that they will fit exactly.These green polys are in a separate mesh layer and will make the source points.The trunk is built to fit. Next I make my prototype branch. You can see the ring of highlighted points they come from one ofthe same polys the same polys as the sourcepoints so that the fit is assured.Note the positioning of this first loop it is centered on the origin and then dropped a small bit downon the Y axis so we don't get a gap.
Exploring Geometry by Coding With @gosphero & @tickleapp In this article I would like to dissect the Math curriculum here in Ontario and focus on the process of mathematics. From the Ontario curriculum document: Problem Solving Problem solving is central to learning mathematics. Furry trees a quick tutorial. Here's a quick tutorial in building furry trees.I though to do a tricky one a Rowan tree. Here's my Ref. and a close up of the leaves. You can just cut out photos but I usually paint as it makes a cleaner map with no unwanted lighting. So first I make a simple stencil in P.shop. Then I duplicate it into a spray of leaves and add branches.
Listen to this organ in Croatia that uses the sea to make hauntingly beautiful music. In 2005, a Croatian architect designed a 230-foot-long organ that turns the rhythm of the waves into actual music. Nope, not nonsensical bellows or chaotic tones. Real, actual, music. Most of us have never seen, or heard, anything like it.

The Teacher Who Believes Math Equals Love : NPR Ed What makes a great teacher great? That's the question at the heart of 50 Great Teachers, from the NPR Ed Team. For her trigonometry class, Sarah Hagan (center) uses everything but the kitchen sink: a flower pot, garbage basket, rolls of tape, rubber balls, even loose spaghetti.

Most of the ideas that were discussed involved using Bitstrips for literacy, social studies, history, health, and even science. However, math never really entered the discussion. So I searched the shared math activities that were posted by other teachers on the Bitstrips For Schools website and only found a total of eight activities. All of these activities consisted of instructions for students to create their own comics.
