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. Is a circle the only curve with constant width? How to construct a Reuleaux triangle To construct a Reuleaux triangle begin with an equilateral triangle of side s, and then replace each side by a circular arc with the other two original sides as radii (Figure 4). The corners of a Reuleaux triangle are the sharpest possible on a curve with constant width. Other symmetrical curves with constant width result if you start with a regular pentagon (or any regular polygon with an odd number of sides) and follow similar procedures.

Home | Practical Physics This website is for teachers of physics in schools and colleges. It is a collection of experiments that demonstrate a wide range of physical concepts and processes. Some of the experiments can be used as starting-points for investigations or for enhancement activities. Many have links to carefully selected further reading and all include information and guidance for technicians. Physics is a practical science. Practical activities are not just motivational and fun: they can also sharpen students’ powers of observation, stimulate questions, and help develop new understanding and vocabulary. Good quality, appropriate physics experiments and investigations are the key to enhanced learning, and clarification and consolidation of theory. We have published a new set of resources to support the teaching of practical science for Key Stages 3-5.

Hammack Home This book is an introduction to the standard methods of proving mathematical theorems. It has been approved by the American Institute of Mathematics' Open Textbook Initiative. Also see the Mathematical Association of America Math DL review (of the 1st edition), and the Amazon reviews. The second edition is identical to the first edition, except some mistakes have been corrected, new exercises have been added, and Chapter 13 has been extended. Order a copy from Amazon or Barnes & Noble for $13.75 or download a pdf for free here. Part I: Fundamentals Part II: How to Prove Conditional Statements Part III: More on Proof Part IV: Relations, Functions and Cardinality Thanks to readers around the world who wrote to report mistakes and typos! Instructors: Click here for my page for VCU's MATH 300, a course based on this book. I will always offer the book for free on my web page, and for the lowest possible price through on-demand publishing.

Applets per la matematica Una raccolta scelta e assistita di programmini, denominati applets, da usare online. Per permetterci di migliorare la nostra offerta, chiediamo cortesemente ai docenti di rispondere online al nostro brevissimo questionario di valutazione. Gli applets sono stati sviluppati dal “Freudenthal Institut Researchgroup in Mathematics education” di Utrecht, in Olanda nel corso di parecchi anni di ricerca e di sperimentazione. Ora alcuni di questi Applets sono messi a disposizione delle Scuole svizzere grazie alla disponibilità dell’Istituto olandese e al progetto comune sviluppato dal Centro didattico del cantone Ticino, dal Fritic del canton Friborgo e da ICT Basler Schulen del canton Basilea. Ogni programmino è accompagnato da una breve descrizione e da una scheda didattica dettagliata. I programmini possono essere utilizzati liberamente. Gli applets sono scritti nel linguaggio di programmazione Java. 60 APPLETS ORDINATI PER ARGOMENTO Numeri / Stima / Operazioni Equazioni Algebra / Calcoli
