2.3.8 Sphere

Surfaces can be constructed in a similar way from plane figures other than polygons. For example, starting with a disc, we can fold the left-hand half over onto the right-hand half, and identify the edges labelled a, as shown in Figure 36; this is rather like zipping up a purse, or ‘crimping’ a Cornish pasti

8.3 Worship in temples and street shrines

Apart from being intensely visible, participation in devotional practice at temples and festivals is extremely widespread within popular Hinduism. If we make allowance for regional and sectarian variations, we can gain some truly representative insights into a central preoccupation of living Hinduism. As in Section 6, I would like you to look

Functional analysis
As taught in 2006-2007 and 2007-2008. Functional analysis begins with a marriage of linear algebra and metric topology. These work together in a highly effective way to elucidate problems arising from differential equations. Solutions are sought in an infinite dimensional space of functions. This module paves the way by establishing the principal theorems (all due in part to the great Polish mathematician Stefan Banach) and exploring their diverse consequences. Topics to be covered will inclu

TALAT Lecture 1253: Creep
This lecture constitutes an introduction to creep and to the creep response of aluminium and its alloys. It provides basic information on creep and its mechanisms; it gives a description of the more extensively used mathematical relations among creep variables (time, stress and temperature); it illustrates the creep response of pure Aluminium and of Al-Mg alloys; it provides a synthesis of the information available in the literature on the creep behaviour of a number of new alloys and composites

USAWC celebrates Army Birthday
With a loud and thunderous, "Hooah," and a mighty, but controlled, swing of a 1902 cavalry saber replica, the U.S. Army War College cut a ceremonial cake and celebrated the Army's 237th Birthday by honoring Soldiers, veterans, and civilians and family members past and present today at the Army Heritage and Education Center.

7.4 Understanding RFID tags

An RFID tag consists of a microchip and an antenna and some kind of encapsulation, such as epoxy resin, to bind the two together and protect them. Tags come in a variety of shapes and sizes (Figure 20), and are generally one of two main types: active or passive. You'll be lea

3.2.1 Remarks

  1. By ‘contains’, we mean that we can find part of the surface that is homeomorphic to a Möbius band. The edge of the Möbius band does not need to correspond to an edge at the surface, so that a surface without boundary can be non-orientable (as we shall shortly see).

  2. When seeking Möbius bands in a surface, it can be helpful to look at all possible closed curves on the surface and thicken these into bands.

  3. Remember, fro

Lecture 11: History of the Department of Engineering Science
Dr Alastair Howatson on the "History of the Department of Engineering Science". The lecture inclined to the earlier days of Oxford engineering rather than the more familiar recent history. The University produced engineers, not always so-called, long before 1908 and engineering was taught from 1886 although there was no formal school. Jenkin, the first professor, was elected in 1908 after years of frustrated attempts to found a chair; he combined high mathematical qualifications with years of in

5.3.4 Recommendations and opinions

These have no binding force and therefore are ineffective as Community law. However, they can have ‘persuasive authority’. If a recommendation or opinion is ignored, it may later be followed up with a stronger legislative initiative, such as a decision or directive.

5: Conclusion

In this course, you have been introduced to a number of ways of representing data graphically and of summarizing data numerically. We began by looking at some data sets and considering informally the kinds of questions they might be used to answer.

An important first stage in any assessment of a collection of data, preceding any numerical analysis, is to represent the data, if possible, in some informative diagrammatic way. Useful graphical representations that you have met in this cour

3.1.3 (C) Scientific methods and critical testing

Pupils should be taught that science uses the experimental method to test ideas, and, in particular, about certain basic techniques such as the use of controls. It should be made clear that the outcome of a single experiment is rarely sufficient to establish a knowledge claim.

2 What is science?

In all subjects – and science no less so than others – definitions are problematic. At one level, science is a body of knowledge about the natural world. But this begs the question: what is peculiar about scientific knowledge as opposed to, taking just one example, an explanation of the origin of the Universe rooted in folklore and superstition? Others might argue that the scientific approach is unique – that the processes involved in doing science are distinct. That might

1 Course overview

In this course we'll be concerned with what type of science forms the basis of science education, and for what purpose. You'll explore these issues by reading the text that follows and by tackling the activities that are included; there are also a number of readings. In the latter part of this course (Sections 10–14) we'll consider some of the practical problems involved in delivering an effective curriculum in science and look at key questions relevant to all three educational tiers
