Normal Number A number is said to be simply normal to base if its base- expansion has each digit appearing with average frequency tending to A normal number is an irrational number for which any finite pattern of numbers occurs with the expected limiting frequency in the expansion in a given base (or all bases). For example, for a normal decimal number, each digit 0-9 would be expected to occur 1/10 of the time, each pair of digits 00-99 would be expected to occur 1/100 of the time, etc. A number that is normal in base- is often called -normal. A number that is -normal for every , 3, ... is said to be absolutely normal (Bailey and Crandall 2003). As stated by Kac (1959), "As is often the case, it is much easier to prove that an overwhelming majority of objects possess a certain property than to exhibit even one such object....It is quite difficult to exhibit a 'normal' number!" If a real number is -normal, then it is also -normal for and integers (Kuipers and Niederreiter 1974, p. 72; Bailey and Crandall 2001).

Same-sex marriage in the United States Same-sex marriage is legally recognized in some jurisdictions within the United States and by the federal government. Seventeen states[a] and the District of Columbia have legalized same-sex marriage. Eight Native American tribal jurisdictions[b] issue marriage licenses for same-sex couples. Recently, U.S. district courts in Utah,[6] Oklahoma,[7] Virginia,[8] Texas,[9], Michigan[10] and Ohio[11] have declared state constitutional amendments banning same-sex marriage to be unconstitutional under the Constitution of the United States. The movement to obtain civil marriage rights and benefits for same-sex couples in the United States began in the 1970s,[19] but became more prominent in American politics in 1993 when the Hawaii Supreme Court declared the state's prohibition to be unconstitutional in Baehr v. Legal issues[edit] Federal law[edit] DOMA was challenged in the federal court system. Many aspects of marriage law are determined by the states, rather than the federal government.

Shape Worksheets I organized these shape worksheets by grade level, as sometimes, if a child is motoring ahead, or lagging behind in a certain area, the last thing you as a parent wants to do is spend time scouring a website looking for the next level worksheet. If you are currently working on a specific grade level rather than this specific topic - please vist the geometry worksheets zone. Geometry is the study of shapes, so this section cannot be overlooked by any student. Many times, because of the structure of the elementary educations, a second grader has lost much of their knowledge of shape recognition. This is because geometry is not an area of major focus in first or second grade. Don't let this happen to your kids. If you have any suggestions on how to make this site better for you and other readers, please don't hesitate to contact me. Return from these shape worksheets to our Geometry Worksheets hub.

Spelling & Vocabulary Website: SpellingCity Pi and the Fibonacci Numbers Surprisingly, there are several formulae that use the Fibonacci numbers to compute pi (π). Here's a brief introduction from scratch to all that you need to know to appreciate these formulae. Contents of this page The icon means there is a Things to do investigation at the end of the section. How Pi is calculated Until very recently there were just two methods used to compute pi (π), one invented by the Greek mathematician Archimedes, and the other by the Scottish mathematician James Gregory. Measuring the steepness of a hill The steepness of a hill can be measured in different ways. The ratio is converted to a decimal to get its percentage, so a slope of "1 in 5" means 1/5 or 20%. But what does "a slope of 1 in 5" mean? There are two interpretations. But they look the same slope? So we had better be clear about what we mean by slope of a line in mathematics!! The slope of a line in mathematics is ALWAYS taken to mean the tangent of the angle of slope. The tangent of an angle tan(x) = a/b

Tony Nicklinson euthanasia: 'My life is miserable and undignified' says locked-in syndrome sufferer A man who is physically unable to commit suicide yesterday took his 'right-to-die' case to the High Court. A stroke in 2005 left Tony Nicklinson with 'locked-in syndrome' – mentally sound but paralysed from the neck down and unable to speak. At the High Court in London, he described his existence as 'dull, miserable, demeaning, undignified and intolerable' as he began his landmark case that challenges the law on murder. Court plea: Tony Nicklinson, 58, pictured with his wife Jane, suffers from 'locked-in' syndrome. His case will be heard at the High Court today He wants the three judges to rule that if, and when, he decides he wants to die, a doctor will be immune from prosecution if they help him. Mr Nicklinson, 58, who communicates by blinking or with limited head movement, described having no 'privacy or dignity left' and said his right to choose life or death had been taken away, And a recent Twitter campaign urging him to live has only reinforced his resolve.
