Polygons are closed plane figures formed by three or more line segments. If a figure is open or curved, it cannot be considered a polygon. Concave polygons have at least one diagonal that does not pass through the interior of the polygon; all of the diagonals in a convex polygon are contained within the figure. Equiangular polygons have all angles congruent; equilateral polygons have all sides congruent. (02:58)

Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata as Seen Through Data
This video shows Stephen Malinowski playing the first movement of Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata. The sheet music scrolls by at the bottom, and a bar graph scrolls across the top.

Amoretti "My Love is like to ice, and I to fire" by Edmund Spenser (poetry reading)

It can easily be shown that love and marriage are one side of cooperation -- not a cooperation for the welfare of two
