1.6.2 Beware of first impressions

Representing ‘sums of money, and time, by parts of space’, as Playfair put it, may indeed seem obvious and readily agreed, but nevertheless graphics showing the rise and fall of profits, expenditure or interest rates over time often need to be approached carefully. As the inventor of the bar chart (or bar graph), Playfair might well have raised a quizzical eyebrow at the example in Author(s): The Open University

3.1 Surfaces with twists

In Section 3 we study the orientability of surfaces from an informal point of view. In particular, we take a detailed look at the projective plane and its properties. We start by examining some surfaces that resemble a Möbius band.

A cylinder or a Möbius band can be formed by gluing together the ends of a rectangular strip or band of paper either with or without twisting the paper before gluing. Does adding further twists to the band before gluing provide any more examples of surfaces

Form and uses of language
In this unit we will consider how language can be used in different ways for different purposes. To do this we will use the theme of memorial and commemoration. In the first section we briefly discuss the life of the poet Siegfried Sassoon before examining both his poetry and prose. Through this we will see how he conveys meaning in different ways for different audiences using different forms. Following this we discuss more generally how different meanings can be conveyed using prose and poetic
