Math Tables & Formulas - S.O.S.| Lighthouses |
Math Words, Glossaries, Dictionaries MATHEMATICAL TABLES AND FORMULAS - S.O.S. MATHEMATICS A place for students and educators to access mathematical formulas. The tables are organized by topics, and include: - the first 1000 prime numbers - the prime factorization of the first 1000 integers - math for the toolbox - SAE to metric conversion - some important constants - Bernoulli and Euler's numbers - algebraic identities - units of conversion - binomial coefficients and formulas - trigonometric identities - derivatives - integrals - indefinite integrals - integrals with trigonometric functions - integrals with exponential and logarithmic functions - integrals with hyperbolic functions - definite integrals - Laplace transforms - first and second order differential equations S.O.S. Mathematics, the Web site of the Department of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Texas at El Paso, provides material that reviews the most important results, techniques, and formulas in college and pre-college mathematics. The learning units are presented in worksheet format and require the student's active participation. -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- THE SCIENCE & MATHEMATICS OF LIGHTHOUSES - John Euchler This "educational resource honoring the design, history, and spirit of our nation's guiding beacons" offers suggestions for questions that investigate the geometry, algebra and trigonometry, physics, and chemistry of lighthouses, with some history and a short bibliography of books and online references, including Lighthouse Digest magazine: For more on lighthouses, see LIGHTHOUSE BUILDERS NEED TO KNOW MATH from the Groton Public Schools Online. The page identifies some geometric shapes common to lighthouse architecture, and outlines a construction project for making your own lighthouse on a paper plate island, with a link to information on how to electrify it: -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- MATH WORDS, AND SOME OTHER WORDS, OF INTEREST - Pat Ballew Why do they call it a right angle? Where did the word hundred come from? A list of over 120 mostly math words, and their origins, from abscissa to zero.
