|Martin Mulder; SCORE Mathematics|
|A lesson written to assist teachers in using the Wireman project at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. The application, Wireman, allows students to put wireframe objects like: spheres, cylinders, cones, squares, and super spheroids together to make a picture, adding color and other attributes to each object. A fly file is created by taking snapshots of the picture from various eye positions. The fly files are then sent up to the supercomputer at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory over a modem through your Internet provider to be processed and changed into animated movies. After downloading the movie files you view them through another application called Movie. Aligned to the California State Standards.
