"The Torch or The Firehose: A Guide to Section Teaching, Spring 2009"
The Torch or The Firehose: A Guide to Section Teaching, by MIT Mathematics Professor Arthur Mattuck, is a guide to recitation teaching at MIT. During a typical recitation section, a teaching assistant (TA) meets with a small group of students to review the most recent lecture, expand on the concepts, work through practice problems, and conduct a discussion with the students. With good humor and sound advice, Professor Mattuck offers both novice and seasoned recitation instructors guidelines on h
SAS Triangle similarity test
An interactive applet and associated web page showing how the SAS similarity test works. Two similar triangles are shown that can be resized by dragging. The other triangle adjusts to remain similar and the side-angle-side elements are highlighted to show how they are involved in this test of similarity. (two sides in proportion and the included angle the same). The web page describes all this and has links to other related pages. Applet can be enlarged to full screen size for use with a classro
SSS Triangle similarity test
An interactive applet and associated web page showing how the SSS similarity test works. Two similar triangles are shown that can be resized by dragging. The other triangle adjusts to remain similar and the angle-angle-angle elements are highlighted to show how they are involved in this test of similarity. (all three corresponding sides in the same proportion). The web page describes all this and has links to other related pages. Applet can be enlarged to full screen size for use with a classroo
Perimeter of a kite
A web page and interactive applet show how to compute the perimeter of a kite. A kite is shown that can be resized by dragging its vertices. As you drag, the perimeter is continuously recalculated. Text on the page explains that the perimeter is the sum of the sides. For those who prefer it, in a formula that is given. Applet can be enlarged to full screen size for use with a classroom projector. This resource is a component of the Math Open Reference interactive geometry reference book project
Diagonals of a rectangle
A web page and interactive applet show how to compute the length of the diagonals of a rectangle. A rectangle is shown that can be resized by dragging its vertices. As you drag, the diagonals are continuously recalculated. Text on the page explains calculation. For those who prefer it, in a formula that is given. Applet can be enlarged to full screen size for use with a classroom projector. This resource is a component of the Math Open Reference interactive geometry reference book project at htt
The Family Business: Ruth Asawa
Sculptor Ruth Asawa has been associated with some of the most notable figures in American 20th century art: Josef Albers, Buckminster Fuller, John Cage, Merce Cunningham, Robert Rauschenberg, and Jasper Johns. This Educator Guide is dedicated to highlighting arts education in the Bay Area and the model programs established by Asawa and her family.
Street Art: Los Cazadores del Sur
Jacobo Palacios and Rafael Cutillo left families in Guatemala and El Salvador to play music in restaurants and on the streets of San Francisco's Mission District for tips. SPARK follows this duo, Los Cazadores del Sur (The Hunters From the South). This Educator Guide is about the history and tradition of roving musicians from Medieval minstrelsy through the Modern mariachi.

Galaxy-Quasar Associations: Is the Big Bang Bung?
When we see a galaxy and a quasar near each other in the sky, it might be because they are really near each other, or it might be that they are far apart and just along the same line of sight. Tests performed by Alan Stockton (Astrophysical Journal 223:747-757, "The Nature of QSO Redshifts", 1978) on a sample of such pairs have shown that some galaxy-quasar pairs have the same redshift and so are accepted as being at the same distance. Other pairs with very different redshifts however have been
Urban Signatures: Sensible Heat Flux (WMS)
Big cities influence the environment around them. For example, urban areas are typically warmer than their surroundings. Cities are strikingly visible in computer models that simulate the Earths land surface. This visualization shows sensible heat flux predicted by the Land Information System (LIS) for a day in June 2001. Sensible heat flux is higher in the cities--that is, they transfer more heat to the atmosphere--because the surface there is warmer than in the surroundings. Only part of the g

Algorithm For The Automatic Design Of A Shading Device
Given that there is a need to shade a window from the summer sun and also a need to expose it to the winter sun, this article describes an algorithm to design automatically a geometric construct that satisfies both requirements. The construct obtained represents the minimum solution to the simultaneous requirements. The window may be described by an arbitrary convex polygon and it may be oriented in any direction and it may be placed at any chosen latitude. The algorithm consists of two sequenti
