Extractions: MATH AND ENGINES Welcome to my page. My name is Daniel Huck and I am in 8th grade. I am in a geometry class at Littleton High School. I have a RC airplane so that is why I wrote this page. This page is about different engine air-fuel ratios on carburetors and fuel-injection that are related to math and has some animated diagrams and graphs. There is also some flexagon information and links. Finally, there is a Napoleon's Theorem which is a diagram made by the French emperor. I hope you find this page interesting and informative. I tried to make it very easy to understand with a lot of illustrations. Below is the description of my page. Napoleon's Theorem is an interesting design that involves triangles and incenter. My section has a design of one and tells more about this design. Go to Napoleon's Theorem for this section. I compare carburetors and fuel injection on cars and other vehicles. I also look into the air-fuel ratios of the 2. Included is many visuals and an animated throttle. Go to Carbs vs. Injection

Extractions: A triangle is a 3-sided Polygon sometimes (but not very commonly) called the Trigon . All triangles are convex. An Acute Triangle is a triangle whose three angles are all Acute . A triangle with all sides equal is called Equilateral . A triangle with two sides equal is called Isosceles . A triangle having an Obtuse Angle is called an Obtuse Triangle . A triangle with a Right Angle is called Right . A triangle with all sides a different length is called Scalene Let stand for a triangle side and for an angle, and let a set of s and s be concatenated such that adjacent letters correspond to adjacent sides and angles in a triangle. Triangles are uniquely determined by specifying three sides ( SSS Theorem ), two angles and a side ( AAS Theorem ), or two sides with an adjacent angle ( SAS Theorem ). In each of these cases, the unknown three quantities (there are three sides and three angles total) can be uniquely determined. Other combinations of sides and angles do not uniquely determine a triangle: three angles specify a triangle only modulo a scale size ( AAA Theorem ), and one angle and two sides not containing it may specify one, two, or no triangles (
Alvy - Infinite Hexagon Theorem 5/3/03 See paper for full details, such as how this theorem is a generalization of Napoleon s theorem. An even prettier theorem. Sorry, this http://alvyray.com/Geometry/HexagonTheorm.htm
Extractions: Every triangle has an infinite sequence of regular hexagons. Move any of the three red dots to change the gray triangle to any arbitrary triangle . This first theorem says there is an infinite sequence of regular hexagons intimately associated with each triangle, and centered on it (its centroid). Some of the hexagons you might think would be in the sequence aren't. Only those that are 2 n m times as large as the two smallest hexagons are in the sequence, for nonnegative integers n m . You can also move the green point along one edge of the triangle. This changes the parameterization of the hexagons. See paper for full details, such as how this theorem is a generalization of Napoleon's Theorem. An even prettier theorem. Sorry, this page requires a Java-compatible web browser.

Extractions: She is like seeing les demoiselles d'avignon for the first time. It's impossible to be more strange, or more beautiful because of it. Darkness drives exploration. The explorer doesn't love what is there, but what might be. Exploration is the same as education; both are processes of defining one's ignorance. What you really learn is how little you know; the explorer is another student, who learning how big and dark that newfound country really is as he becomes more and more intimate with some small stretch of forest. Like un-carved slabs of stone, new countries, loves, and work depend on the imagination. Finished works, like settled lands and knowing love, starve the imagination, and imagination brings love with it when it goes. We love not people but possibilities, not what you are but everything you could represent Often, what you represent is everything, but what you are. The ability to dispense with reality is the imagination's greatest power; that's what allows it to accomplish what it does

Extractions: Emperor of the French The famous Napoleon Theorem is stated by Coxeter and Greitzer as follows: If equilateral triangles are erected externally on the sides of any triangle, their centers form an equilateral triangle. They continue with a historical anecdote: It is known that Napoleon Bonaparte was a bit of a mathematician with a great interest in geometry. In fact, there is a story that, before he made himself ruler of the French, he engaged in a discussion with the great mathematicians Lagrange and Laplace until the latter told him, severely, "The last thing we want from you, general, is a lesson in geometry." Laplace became his chief military engineer. Coxeter and Greitzer then remark that Napoleon probably did not know enough geometry to discover Napoleon's Theorem, just as he probably did not know enough English to compose the palindrome often attributed to him: Able was I ere I saw Elba. The portrait is by Anne-Louis Girodet-Trioson (1767-1824). I thank the MAA for permission to quote from H. S. M. Coxeter and S. L. Greitzer

Extractions: Mary C. Enderson Indiana University of Pennsylvania, Mathematics Department 233 Stright Hall, Indiana, PA 15705 Investigating Historical Problems Using Geometer's Sketchpad Mary C. Enderson Naturally, history has a place in the mathematics classroom that should not be overlooked. What many mathematicians fail to recognize is the enhancement of historical investigations by use of technology. Geometer's Sketchpad , a dynamic and interactive piece of software, provides a work environment that allows one to create, test, validate, and manipulate objects. It has the power and flexibility to allow students to examine an infinite number of situations, instead of one singular static case, which is invaluable in attempts to make mathematical conjectures and generalizations. The purpose of this paper is not to shed new light on tasks or problems related to history of math, but to share "golden" opportunities where use of Geometer's Sketchpad (GSP) enhances the investigation of many famous geometric problems. The scope of situations to investigate with this software are unlimited. Users quickly see how technology often generates many additional questions or tasks for students to explore, as well as enabling them to visualize the connections among various mathematics topics.
