 Why Cubed? [11/27/2001]

Why do we use "cubed" for the volume of a figure?
 Why is K Used as an Abbreviation for Area? [11/29/2004]

Many textbooks use the letter K to represent area in formulas, instead
of A. Do you know why that is?
 Why Learn Geometric Proofs? [02/27/2002]

Why are we taught geometric proofs if the vast majority of us will never
use them?

 Wood Flooring [08/09/1997]

Estimating the number of linear feet in 1 sq. ft., making wood flooring
3.25 inches wide, producing 5,000 sq. ft. per day.
 World War II Window Blackout [10/21/2001]

Mr. Brown had a square window 120cm x 120cm, but the only material he
could find was a sheet of plywood 160cm x 90cm; same area, different
shape. He drew some lines and cut out just two congruent shapes, which he
joined to make a square of the correct size. How did he do it?
 Writing a Proof [05/16/2001]

Is there a certain way I should go about writing a proof?
 Yes, a Graph Can Touch an Asymptote [06/08/2006]

Is it true that the graph of a function can never touch an asymptote?
 Zero Degree and 360 Degree Angles [10/22/2003]

I am curious if there is such a thing as a zero degree angle, and if
so, what does it look like? I am also wondering if a zero degree
angle equals a 360 degree angle? I understand that a 360 degree angle
is essentially a circle, or the amount of 'turn' that equals a circle.
I am pondering how you would draw a 360 degree angle?
 Zooming Rectangles [05/11/2005]
