Calculating the Distance to the Horizon For Any Game Home Up Site Map Assumptions | Method 1 | Method 2 Method 1 | Method 2 This is all based on the assumption that the horizon is the point on the world's surface at which the line of sight of the viewer, whatever their height, becomes parallel (tangential) to the surface of the world, and meets the surface of the world (so that the viewer cannot see any further than it).

Elementary Concepts in Statistics In this introduction, we will briefly discuss those elementary statistical concepts that provide the necessary foundations for more specialized expertise in any area of statistical data analysis. The selected topics illustrate the basic assumptions of most statistical methods and/or have been demonstrated in research to be necessary components of our general understanding of the "quantitative nature" of reality (Nisbett, et al., 1987). We will focus mostly on the functional aspects of the concepts discussed and the presentation will be very short. Further information on each of the concepts can be found in statistical textbooks.

K-MODDL > Tutorials > Reuleaux Triangle If an enormously heavy object has to be moved from one spot to another, it may not be practical to move it on wheels. Instead the object is placed on a flat platform that in turn rests on cylindrical rollers (Figure 1). As the platform is pushed forward, the rollers left behind are picked up and put down in front. An object moved this way over a flat horizontal surface does not bob up and down as it rolls along. Coaching with the Johari Window We live in a society where we all present a persona, a mask to the world. This protects us from breaking some of the social and legal rules that structure our society. I can also present us with some limitations in behaviours that can restrict both our performance and our ability to succeed. The Johari window is a useful tool to apply in the coaching domain.

factoids > googol / googolplex Words of wisdom are spoken by children at least as often as by scientists. The name 'googol' was invented by a child (Dr Kasner's nine-year-old nephew) who was asked to think up a name for a very big number, namely, 1 with a hundred zeros after it. He was very certain that this number was not infinite, and therefore equally certain that it had to have a name. At the same time that he suggested 'googol' he gave a name for a still larger number: 'Googolplex'. A googolplex is much larger than a googol, but is still finite, as the inventor of the name was quick to point out.

Teach21 Project Based Learning You have been asked by your school principal and local Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) to address the mounting problems around the school grounds. Parents and teachers have noted that the outside area needs substantial improvement. The principal agrees that the greenery and bushes are overgrown and the perimeter of the building is in poor condition. She has challenged your class to tour the outside area and create a needs assessment for the school.
